Fun Monday: And the Award goes to

Sayre is the hostess for Fun Monday for Feb. 1st. She says: I want you to think about the movies that you OWN. Not movies you’ve seen, but the ones you felt strongly enough to go out and buy. You will be your very own awards committee, awarding your movies an Oscar in the following categories:

BEST PICTURE*BEST ACTOR*BEST ACTRESS*BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR*BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS*BEST ANIMATED PICTURE*BEST SCORE*BEST GROUP (Some movies come out with several parts or sequels. Most everyone’s got at least one set of something on their shelves – why that one?) You can include your nominations if you wish, but I’d also like to know why you think your winner in each category deserves to win.

This is a toughie for me! We mostly have animated flicks we figured our kid(s) would like later on, and a few other random things, but we don’t own a lot! I am completely ignoring my husband’s movies, as well. So without further ado, here they are:

BEST PICTURE-Shawkshank Redemption if you have not seen this movie, where have you been?
BEST ACTOR- Tim Allen as Scott Calvin/Santa Claus in The Santa Clause -I can’t help it, these movies are the best feel good movies, ever! His comedic timing is great.
BEST ACTRESS-Maggie Smith as Prof. Minerva McGonagall  Harry Potter Series – Maggie Smith rocks, I’ve loved her in everything, and I can’t imagine anyone pulling off this role better!
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR–This one is a tie, Antonio Banderas as Puss in Boots and Eddie Murphy as Donkey in Shrek –without these foils, the movie would fall flat.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS-Ellen Degeneres as Dory in Finding Nemo — Just keep swimming!
BEST SCORE- I like the music from the Harry Potter movies.
BEST GROUP–Harry Potter series. This would be followed closely by the Santa Clause series, Shrek, and Ice Age movies.


  1. I don’t own Shawshank, but I do have most of your others! I agree wholeheartedly with ALL of your choices! I adore the Santa Clause series (especially the first two), and when my son is trying to pick out something he knows I like, he always goes to those. They are so much fun! I have several groups of movies, but at our house, Star Wars still rules.

  2. I loved the Shawshank redemption…this was a movie that was kinda ignored by the industry…it was a great story. I do own the original “The Santa Clause” with Tim Allen it was funny and is a classic. I was reading your post about your baby being sick…hope she is on the mend today. Thanks for sharing

  3. I too loved the Shawshank Redemption. I have watched it several times. And the animated flicks are really my favorites. Every one of them, including Finding Nemo and Shrek, etc.

    p.s. Your “new” look is great!

    p.s.s. Johnny Depp will play the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland. If anyone can pull this off, it will be Johnny Depp (in my opinion).

  4. All wonderful choices. Makes me wish I’d kept some of my kids’ animated films…they took them to college, of course.

  5. I need to branch out! Haven’t seen any of your favs Jill except Shawshank Redemption. It deserves all your kudos. Re Church Lady’s comment: I also just noticed that Johnny Depp will be in Alice and Wonderland. Maybe that would be the film to get me away from romantic dramas? 🙂

  6. I cant wait to watch the new alice in wonderland movie 2010 when it comes out. I first heard about it being remade about a year ago and I was so excited and once I saw who the actors and actresses were going to be I was very happy. I think that
