Award Season is Upon Us

I love the Christmas season, but honestly Award Season is really my true favorite time of year!  All the Stars come out in their fabulous attire. The Red Carpet is rolled out.  My absolute two favorite award shows are the Golden Globes and, of course, the  Academy Awards...aka...THE OSCARS!

The Golden Globe nominations came out this past Thursday and they are amazing.  This is the best time of year for movies.  All the best ones usually come out around the end of the calendar year.  American Hustle has a lot of nominations: actor, actress, supporting actor and actress, director, and screenplay.  Tom Hanks is nominated for Captain Phillips.  Leonardo DiCaprio is nominated for The Wolf of Wall Street.  Sandra Bullock has a nomination for Gravity.  The are movies nominated that I haven't seen and there are some that I haven't even heard of!  I've got some movie watching to do.

The GREAT thing about the Golden Globes is that Television is also involved.  There are some great shows out there. Thank The Lord I have Hulu and Netflix.  House of Cards received at least three nominations: best actor (Kevin Spacey), actress, and TV drama. The Good Wife, Downton Abbey, Breaking Bad, and so many more.

I have the list of my favorite movie categories for you below.  Normally, I would highlight who I think is going to win, but since I still have a few movies to see, I will save that for later!
