Audrey of the Month

Here's the lovely Audrey wearing a Givenchy dress on Oscar night April 10, 1968. She was nominated for the fifth time as best actress for her performance in "Wait Until Dark."

Speaking of Oscars, I'm happy to report that my streak is still alive! What streak, you may ask?? This is the 31st consecutive year that I've seen all of the best picture nominees before the Oscar ceremony. And it wasn't easy this time. I've been so darned busy the past six months, but last night we got to "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" and this morning I watched "Tree of Life." Whew!

May everyone have a Happy Oscar Day tomorrow -- why doesn't Hallmark have cards to commemorate this holiday??

  1. CFB, I broke my own record -- this is the first year I haven't seen ANY of the movies! I still love the Oscars, though, and always watch!

    1. There are some good films nominated, so hopefully you'll rent some of them during the next few months. Have fun tonight!

  3. I was just happy to have seen one of the nominated films this year before the Great Event! It's been a while since I've been up to date on current/recent releases. But I'm looking forward to seeing at least most of the rest of them over the next few months.

  4. I saw them all but "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close". It didn't last long enough for me to go see it.

    1. We saw "Extremely Loud" at the Glen on Friday night. It had some good moments, but the "less is more" approach would have worked better in this film.

  5. Wow, your Oscar streak is very impressive! But I'm having trouble with the math: Did you really start watching all the nominees at the age of 2? :>)
