Usually I’m always up on watching all the awards shows and doing a recap of them but this year I’ve been slacking off. And that also means I didn’t watch the Oscars either (sorry!). But I did see/hear about all of the highlights!
I’m not much of a movie person which is probably why I wasn’t at all interested in watching. I do sometimes enjoy Ellen Degeneres but even she wasn’t enough to get me to be interested. Movies are always too long and I have a short attention span. I was, however amused by Ellen’s celebrity selfie! It even broke the record for most retweets on Twitter!
I had no idea Jared Leto was in a movie, let alone was a good enough actor to win an Oscar! That was definitely the most surprising moment for me. I enjoy his music in his band 30 Seconds to Mars. Other than that I awkwardly didn’t know the rest of the winners….. Maybe for next year I’ll be more caught up on cinema!
So, in closing, this wasn’t much of a recap. My apologies.
Here’s a funny red carpet video though
This winter break I’ve invested in Netflix, as I’ve previously discussed. It has saved me from extreme boredom and has been entertaining me as I continue to fill out law school applications during break. Unlike all my friends, I don’t move into my apartment in D.C. until next week. The abundance of movies and tv shows at my fingertips is astounding!
The newest show I’ve gotten into is Orange Is The New Black. It’s a show about a woman, Piper, who gets thrown in prison after a crime she committed like 15 years ago. She’s not what a viewer would consider the typical jail type which adds to the humor. It’s a dark comedy so while being funny it also has more serious elements at times. The show also goes into the backstories of various inmates as well. It gets risqué at times so it might not be for everyone.
I have gotten so addicted to it that I’ve gotten through the whole season in two days. The second season is supposed to be premiering on Netflix sometime this year so I’m excited for it to get started back up again! Ellen Degeneres did a funny skit involving a scene on the show fairly recently that I enjoyed:
