Tonight I get to celebrate my favorite non-holiday of the year: Oscar® Night!
After a three year hiatus, I am reinstating my annual Oscar® party, now located in Brooklyn. There will be glitz, glamour, and lots of champagne. Good luck to all the nominees, but especially to THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, one of my favorite movies of the year.
I had the opportunity to attend the premiere for THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL this week, and it was such a fun rollick through the mind of director, Wes Anderson. It’s quirky and colorful and very funny. I loved it!
The Broadway series continued in February with a trip down to Greenwich Village to see “Buyer and Cellar,” a one-man comedy starring Michael Urie. The show is so much fun…really laugh-out-loud funny, and Michael Urie’s energy is just amazing. And though the show is fictional, it draws inspiration from Barbara Streisand’s “My Passion for Design” book, and particularly photos of the mall she has in her basement to house all her collections. Brilliant!
Though I never watched VERONICA MARS when it originally aired in the mid-2000s, I wanted to catch up before the much-hyped film is released next month. I’m 8 episodes into the first season and I’m loving it! I also just realized that Kristen Bell was at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts at the same time as me, and while we were both in college I saw her in an Off-Broadway play: Reefer Madness (I still have the Playbill). Adding in her love of sloths, I think Kristen Bell is my new favorite person.
I am so excited HOUSE OF CARDS second season has been released on Netflix! I know what I’ll be doing on this snowy Saturday.
GONE WITH THE WIND is a Super Bowl tradition in my home…and it just happens to coincide with the Turner Classic Movies channel 31 Days of Oscar!
It’s the Happiest Place on Earth!!
Rain or shine, we got on every ride and met Mickey and all the princesses!
I kicked off the Broadway Series of 2014 with a matinee of “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder,” a new musical comedy about one man’s murderous efforts to gain the family title. It was very charming and funny, and I loved the amazing quick changes that Jefferson Mays executed in order to play 9 different roles!
And SHERLOCK is back on Masterpiece Mystery!! It’s a good day!!
In getting ready for a trip to Walt Disney World in Florida next week, I am going to watch a classic Disney film each night…and top on the list are:
Beauty and the Beast
The Lion King
The Little Mermaid
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
