As I lay here, dying from Downton Abbeywithdrawal (the clothes! the accents! the incest!), Brad and Angelina have obviously found a cure for their very own DA withdrawals. They’ve just purchased a 13 million dollar mansion in London called Whornes Place, presumably to live out their own sort of upstairs/downstairs drama while we all feverishly wait for season three of Downton Abbey (fuck you September!).
Can you imagine a Mr. Pamuk dying in the bedroom of an 18-year-old rebellious Zahara? Or Pax going off to valiantly fight the Germans? Will they have their very own Mr. Bates and Anna? Will Shiloh be the heart-on-her-sleeve modern version of Lady Sybil? Only time will tell folks, only time will tell.
All I know is Whornes Place would be the best show in the history of shows, ever. PLEEEEEEEASE BRANGELINA! They won’t do it because they’re all eloquent and shit. But maybe SNL could pick it up as a recurring skit. Or webisodes on Youtube. Someone’s gotta have enough free time. Yeah? YEAH?!
I am a total Academy Awards slut. I LOVE the show. The outfits, the epicness of the whole night and watching actors win (and lose gracefully as they practiced in the mirror with their publicist) is highly entertaining. Can you believe this is Meryl Streep’s 17th nomination?! She is the fucking queen of cinema and acting. Amazing. Phenomenal. Best of all time.
I also have to admit that I’m a huge loser as I have only seen one of the best picture nominations, Midnight in Paris. Don’t worry, I’m judging myself too for not seeing “The Help” yet. I’m pretty much the worst person alive.
I’m SO happy for Brad Pitt. He deserves some recognition. I’m pretty sure Jean Dujardin is gonna win though. And Clooney! Who doesn’ love a Clooney nomination?! Jonah Hill and Melissa McCarthy are awesome nominations as well, just because I like them so much.
I really hope either Midnight in Paris or Bridesmaids wins for Best Original Screenplay. They were both amazing a refreshing films. Hollywood needs to stop being so lame about threequels and fourquels and invest in some great writing talent!
I put a star next to the person/movie/costume I’d like to win just because. Some I just can’t decide, so there are two… or three stars. Because choosing between favorites is just plain cruel.
