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 ANIMATED PICTURE- Over the Hedge.
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.
