Oscars 2018


This year, I have to confess, I was not a great example of a cinema geek (which I am)... unfortunately, I couldn't watch all the nominated movies in time for the Oscars night... (I intend to do it in a few days!) But, I did stay up all night to watch the ceremony. I do this since I was 10 years old. For me it's like magical... but I have to say that magic has been vanishing, year after year. Do you feel that? I think Hollywood has not been paying enough attention to his story and can not keep up with the advancement of time in a proper way.

Suddenly, it seems everyone is much more interested in what the stars are wearing in the red carpet than in what they are doing for art. And this year it all seemed a lot worst...with the shadow of Harvey Weinstein in every corner. The ceremony itself was poor, the hoster (Jimmy Kimmel) was off most of the time, and the musical moments were... boring.

When will we have this again?...

Este ano, devo confessar, não fui um ótimo exemplo de geek de cinema (algo que até sou) ... infelizmente, não pude ver todos os filmes nomeados a tempo da noite dos Óscares ... (pretendo fazê-lo nos próximos dias!) Mas fiquei acordada a noite toda para assistir à cerimónia. Faço isso desde os meus 10 anos de idade. Para mim tem algo de mágico... mas devo dizer que a magia se tem desvanecido ano após ano. Também sentem isso? Eu acho que Hollywood não tem prestado a devida atenção à sua história e não tem conseguido acompanhar o avançar dos tempos da forma mais adequada.

De repente, parece que todo mundo está muito mais interessado no que as estrelas vestem na passadeira vermelha do que no que elas estão a fazer pela arte. E este ano tudo me pareceu muito pior ... com a sombra de Harvey Weinstein a pairar em cada canto. A cerimónia em si foi pobre, o anfitrião (Jimmy Kimmel) não esteve presente na maior parte do tempo, e os momentos musicais foram... chatos.

Quando será que voltamos a ter isto de novo? ...

But, let's go to the red carpet looks!
