Oscar Nominations

// January 31st, 2006 // Moviesandtv, Obsessions

The nominations for the Academy Awards should be announced later today, an event that thrills me no end as I am an Oscar whore! We traditionally have a bit of an Oscar bash and this year will be no different, though we will have to persuade new punters of the crazy fun of laying down hard cash and getting totally sloshed on cheap champagne.

    I did pretty well – only one wrong in each category – mind you it’s not like I put much original thought into it – just a numbers game.

    When you refocus that brilliance into chemistry who knows what will happen!
