J K Simmons Best Supporting Actor…Really?

February 22, 2015

It is trending right now on Facebook, “J K Simmons wins Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Whiplash.” Really? I watched that film, loved it, and when that time came around for all the critics to vote, I chose Simmons for the Best Actor award. A long discussion ensued where I explained my rationale for picking… Read More ›


I’m Still a Versatile Blogger!

I’ve got to thank Asian Cinema Blog for sending this award my way. When she told me I’d been nominated, she stated, “I see you already have one, so another couldn’t hurt.” How true. I’ve always wanted to refer to my site as an “award-winning site” and now I can, several times over. Due to the… Read More ›


BOOM Upside My Head, Versatile Blogger Award!

Whilst I was reeling from getting THREE nominations for the Epically Awesome Award for Epic Awesomeness, Dave over at  Last Road Reviews pummelled me upside the head with a Versatile Blogger Award. Ouch! I didn’t see that one coming! As with all awards in the Blogging verse, this one comes with rules. Since I’ve taken days to respond… Read More ›


Epically Awesome Award of Epic Awesomeness Times Three

My mother always told me I was special (she still does actually) and even though I knew that she thought so, I knew it was because all mothers think their children are. But today, I’ve had no less than three different bloggers nominate me for the Epically Awesome Award of Epic Awesomeness! First, Kim over at Tranquil… Read More ›


Best Moment Award

I owe a heartfelt thank you to Sandra over at quirkybooks who nominated me based on my blog post – 50,000 Plus! Thanks Guys. This is the first time I’ve received this award and I am, to put it plainly, chuffed to bits (in American English that means damned happy). So  again, Sandra, thanks! I also… Read More ›


I’m a Versatile Blogger…Again!

Just when I thought I was through with dodging the award bullets, I got “zinged” with another one from my good friend Marilyn over at Serendipity. She has given me the Versatile Blogger award! If you haven’t checked out her great blog, stop reading this and head on over via the link above. She has… Read More ›


The Very Inspiring Blogger Award AND the Liebster Award? THANKS!

It’s obviously that time of year again where award giving has reared its ugly  awkward labour-intensive lovely head and I’ve been bestowed with not one but two! Since I am a self-admitted lazy person, I’ve taken my sweet time answering the first award, The Liebster Award, that I was honoured with; from the lovely and… Read More ›

Look! It's Malcom's dad Hal and he's with Ben Affleck!

Argo (2012): Ben Affleck Hits a Home Run

I wrote about this film way back when I saw the first trailer and heard about the incredible events that inspired it. That was way back on the 17th of August last year and it was aptly titled Argo (2012): A Truth Stranger than Fiction (just click on the previous link if you missed it the… Read More ›

Awarded from Marilyn from Serendipity!

The Dragon’s Loyalty Award: Mouthwash Not Required

When I first saw that Marilyn over at Serendipity had graced me with this award, my first thought was, “Dragon’s breath?” But, no, it turns out that this “new” award is an amalgamation of the  Versatile Blogger Award  and the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Katrina Perkins came up with this wonderful idea and hence it is she who… Read More ›


The Oscar’s: Ego’s “R” Us

With all the usual hype and build-up to the 85th Oscar Academy Awards, I suddenly realised that, unlike the ceremonies that I watched growing up, I did not care at all about the upcoming event. I used to love the Oscar ceremony. The Academy Awards with all its pomp and circumstance kept me glued to the telly… Read More ›
