image003

Lupita Nyong’o might’ve just walked off with her first Academy Award, but she might just be adding another trophy to her collection this year. Why? Well because she’s been nominated for an MTV Movie Award, along with some of the other usual suspects… Only difference is these awards are a lot more fun, less stiff and entertaining to watch most of the time. I mean check out some of the categories for instance; Best Comedic Performance, Best Villain, Best Kiss, Best Scared-As-S**t Performance, Best Musical Moment, #WTF Moment, Best On-Screen Duo, Best Fight, Best Shirtless Performance … It can only be a lot of fun. Here are the nominees:

Oscars 2014 – a few predictons

In just a couple of hours, Hollywood royalty will all gather together for the 86th Academy Awards. We’ll find out who will win big at this year’s Oscars and it’s the culmination of a long, but very exciting and entertaining awards season. I’m going to be up from around 1am, CAT watching E! Entertainment’s Live from the Red Carpet, followed by the live show. I can’t wait to see what Ellen DeGeneres has in store for us and I’m really excited to see the big winners. The only big film contender I haven’t seen is Blue Jasmine, but if the other awards are anything to go by, Cate Blanchett should ready herself for an Oscar speech.
