Nope, not a bit. Not feeling Xmassy at all which is really bizarre for me.
I’m usually hyped right about now and nicknamed the Xmas Nazi.
It just isn’t happening this year.
Not for the love of trying though.
I think the fiasco with the heating and then the complete outage of Internet and TV service has had a lot to do with it. The last month has been dreary and cold and boring.
I also think that I’m so hyped about going to see Rogue One next week, Xmas has taken a bit of a back seat.
The decs are up. The presents are sorted and wrapped. The gammon and beef are cooked and sliced and frozen. The Xmas nibbles are just about sorted with just a few date sensitive items to get and the fresh bits and pieces on Xmas eve.
Tomorrow I plan to make sausage rolls and write Xmas cards.
Anyway, it’s also at this time of year I start to keep an eye open for Oscar predictions.
It won’t be long before they are upon us in February.
I had hoped that ‘Paterson’ would be a little bit more on the forefront of nominations but it’s barely getting a mention which is a crying shame because it is an absolute masterpiece.
I’m not too disheartened because Adam has had two films out within weeks of each other and the second one is looking much more promising when it comes to the Oscar buzz.
Every prediction site I read has it listed as a Best Picture contender with lots of mentions for the possibility of Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography and Best Editing.
Andrew Garfield gets a mention for the possibility of a Best Actor for Silence nomination and even Adam gets several sites placing him as a contender for Best Supporting Actor for Silence!!
I really can’t wait to see this film in January to decide for myself although it looks like it’s going to be quite harrowing!
They say patience is a virtue. When it comes to movies I have no patience whatsoever!!
I want them all NOW!
