Winners of the 84th Academy Awards

Last night, or early this morning, the 84th Academy Awards took place in the Kodak Theatre, Hollywood.  The ceremony was hosted by Billy Crystal and featured appearances from the Muppets and Cirque Du Soleil.  Just over a month ago, on the 25th of January, I made nine predictions.  Now that the results are in, I can happily say that I was right about five of them, which, by the power of majority rules, makes me psychic.  Check out which ones I predicted HERE or you just check out the list of winners below.

College Results

I woke up at eight in the morning, immediately demonstrating my graceful moving skills by hitting my side off the corner of a shelf.  An accidental, but handy, way to ensure I didn’t use the snooze button, though I don’t recommend it.  I hurried unnecessarily fast with a mix of nerves and excitement acting as a caffeine substitute.  Today I got my results from college.

When I arrived there were only two of my classmates there.  I waited as they went in one at a time and I listened as they told me how they did and then it was my turn.  I sat down in a chair, facing two of my lecturers (ex-lecturers).  After some small talk I was given a big brown envelope.  Inside the envelope were my results and several other pages I didn’t care about at the time, recommendations for colleges and stuff, I quickly found my results and the first thing I said was,

‘I only got a pass in quiz radio?’

They were shocked and it turns out it was a mistake, it was meant to be a merit.  They took the sheet and tore it up.  One of them left the room to print out a fixed version and the other stayed and had a chat.  It wasn’t too long before I was handed the correct version of my results.  I finished with an overall distinction (which is the best you can get) and now have a HND in journalism.  I’m really going to miss my class.  I had a really great experience and I hope to keep in touch with them in the future.

Results of my All Nighter

I’m just writing to let people know that I survived my all nighter.  I had a friend that came over and helped keep me focused, and at times distracted.  I finished my thesis a few minutes after five, left my friend home, then came back to print, which took a while.  I haven’t really had a lot of sleep since then, but that’s not unusual for me.

I thought it’d be a good idea to let you guys know what tips worked and what ones didn’t.  I lowered the light on my computer screen and it really worked, my eyes did not get strained at all.  I avoided caffeine, but not sugar.  Instead of eating apples I just didn’t eat, it wasn’t planned it just ended up that way, when I started to feel hungry I ate some chocolate and I didn’t crash.  In fact, there weren’t any times were I was really on the verge of falling asleep.  Having a friend over was a good idea, I would have worked faster alone, but I may have given in if it weren’t for her.  I drank so much water at the start, but then I just couldn’t drink anymore.

I would definitely do this again; it wasn’t a bad experience at all.  I got a lot of work done.  So if you’re behind on work I’d recommend it, but definitely follow the tips, even the ones I didn’t like because everyone’s different.

Also I updated the NPG post, below.

The Oscar Winners 2011

Winning an Oscar is pretty much the best thing that can happen to an actor, director or anyone in the film industry.  The winners are selected by other members of that field e.g. Best Director is picked by directors.  It’s basically like all your co-workers saying ‘you’re the best’.  It’s the high point of their career, they’ve peaked and it’s all downhill from there.  With the exception of those who win multiple Oscars, those bastards.

Here are the results of some of the more well known categories:

Best Picture
The Kings Speech

Best Director
Tom Hooper – The Kings Speech

Best Actor
Colin Firth – The Kings Speech

 Best Actress
Natalie Portman – Black Swan

Best Supporting Actor
Christian Bale – The Fighter

Best Supporting Actress
Melissa Leo – The Fighter

Melissa Leo’s speech was interesting; she managed to say the ‘F’ word on, what’s probably, the most elegant event there is.  This is the first year that I’ve actually watched the Oscars, granted I didn’t get to see it all because of the time difference, but I’ll catch a repeat.  To be honest, I was expecting it to be overly formal and boring, but it wasn’t (which is a good thing).  I’ve annoyed people all day, as I desperately try to describe the opening clip that, hosts, James Franco and Anne Hathaway made.  It was hilarious, but the funniest part was Franco’s grandmother who stood up and proclaimed ‘I seen Marky Marky’.

Do you agree with the results?  Leave a comment and vote below.


Razzie Winners

I had a good moan yesterday and thanks to everyone for voting and commenting.  It was actually the bad votes that made me want to write (I never once said I was normal).  Anyway I was informed of a way to fix the problem, but I’m undecided on whether or not I should do it (again, I’m not normal deal with it).

The Razzies are an important celebration of failure.  By highlighting this failure, we hope to make celebrities aware of just how terrible they really are, so without further ado (yes that’s a word) here’s the winners.
