Stephanie's Oscar Picks

I have been posting a lot of video and photo only blogs. I need to actually write stuff.

The Oscar's are this Sunday. I know that some years are better than others, but all in all, I like the Oscar's. I love to see the dresses, hear the speeches, and the goofy entertainment by the host(s). I think it if fun, not because someday I want to be there, though that would be nice, but I get that most of these people work hard and in some cases sacrifice a lot to obtain this form of fulfilment and this is an opportunity for recognition and celebration. It all pays off after all the blood sweat and tears. Some of these people strive for it. Other's just love what they do and want to express themselves through the various art forms and someone (the Academy) appreciates and recognizes it and that is pretty cool.

Not all of my favorite films made it to the Oscar's so I am going to be my own Academy and tell you what I liked about 2010 movies. I didn't see every movie that came out. But I did see a lot of movies and am always open to see more. If you have a recommendation that is not already on the list then let me know and I will check it out.

Worst Movie-Clash of the Titans
Seriously an awful movie. I saw the old version when I was a kid, but the new version had no depth to anything and was very meh. I know when I give movies my money it will always be a gamble, but this is one of the only movie in a long time that really made me want to get my money and 2 hours back.

Best Action Movie-Kick Ass
Great story, acting, funny, and totally unexpected story line.

Best Video Game made Movie-Prince of Persia-The Sands of Time
I love Jake and found this movie to be completely entertaining.

Best Action Romantic Comedy-Killers
I love Katherine and this movie was charming.

Best Romantic Comedy-She's Out of My League
Great story and loved the acting and the awkward situations the main character went through. No matter how cool or nerdy you are, everyone can connect to what he felt.

Cutest Movie-Despicable Me
The voices were done so well. The story was nothing but adorable and left me feeling so happy.

Best Comedy-The Other Guy's
I laughed so hard in this movie. Hilarious story and great acting, especially Will Ferrel's
ab-lib about fish hunting his partner down.

Most Original and Awesome-Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
Wow. Everything about this movie was so neat. It had great dialogue, effects, and was just so cool.

Best Magical Movie-The Sorcerer's Apprentice
This was Jay Baruchel's year. He was in a lot of my favorite movies. This movie was creative and fun. Though the story was simple, it was enjoyable.

I didn't pick a Best Drama yet. I know I saw some, but can't remember any that moved me enough to give it the award. So better luck next year drama's.

By the way, I do own all of the above movies by the way, I only buy good movies too.

Honorable Mentions:
Easy A,
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,
Gulliver's Travels,
and Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Drum Roll Please

Best Movie of the Year is....
How to Train Your Dragon
It was amazing. It was an original story, funny, had a little romance, well acted, awesome animation, and it looked AMAZING in 3D. I bought it the day it came out on bluray and have since watched it many times. In fact, I think I will go watch it right now.

What were your picks of the year?

P.S. I have had my Oscar dress picked out since I was young, should the opportunity ever come up. I would make it more modest on top and maybe play with the color, but I think it is beautiful and love love love the style.


  1. haha. This post was hilarious. If you ever make it to the oscars will you take me with you? I love your dress!

  2. For sure. Your dance team can perform at my after party. :)

  3. Wow. We definitely do not watch the same movies. LOL. I haven't seen most of the ones that made your list. Although I did see a couple of your honorable mentions and loved them.

    My favorite movie of the year was Inception. It looked great, the acting was good, but most importantly: everyone who saw it watched a totally different movie. That takes some mad skills.

  4. Ok, the only movie you and I both watched was Despicable Me. But
    I LOVE the dress you have picked out!
