And The Oscar Goes To... #RB4U #Movies

And The Oscar Goes To...

Are you a movie fan? Each week, I go to a movie and then review it on the local radio station. Throughout the year, I see some amazing movies and some real duds. (I also eat a great deal of popcorn!) 

On February 24th, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) will present a gold trophy to the best of the best for 2018. This year is the 91st presentation of the Oscars. Can you believe they have been around for so long?

Whether you love movies or not, the Oscars is a sight to behold from the gorgeous gowns to the musical numbers. This year there won't be a host which hasn't happened in thirty years.

There are some amazing movies and actors up for awards this year. Here's the complete list of nominations:

I've seen many of the pictures up for best picture and have my own thoughts on what movies and actors will win. 

For best picture: The Favorite
Best Actor: Rami Malek
Best Actress: Glenn Close
Best Supporting Actor: Mahershala Ali
Best Supporting Actress: Regina King
Best Director: Spike Lee

You can check out my reviews of the movies I've seen on my website under Melissa's Morning After Movie Reviews. Or you can listen to my reviews on WHMI (I'm live on Monday mornings at 8:40 am).

It's fun to see if my guesses are correct. Do you have your own predictions? Which of the movies have you seen? Do you agree with the nominations? Were there any movies which were missing?

Schoolteacher, Melanie Whitman’s dating life is in shambles when her boyfriend and former boss dumps her. Her best friend arranges for Master Draikoh San, matchmaker extraordinaire, to provide her with a night to remember.

Breakout star of the third season of the reality TV show Laguna Nights Cole Hayes was burned by the limelight and started a family. After a messy divorce and looking to move back into the dating scene, he agrees to a one-night stand.

Can Cole and Melanie create a relationship that will last a lifetime, or will their one-night stand crash in the waves of Laguna Beach?

Available in ebook and print.
Until next month,

I do enjoy them It is quite the spectacle. I am curious as to how it will work without a host.

I love watching the Oscars. My mother loved them, and we watched when I was growing up. I've seen a few of the movies up for Oscars this year. Very cool you do reviews for your radio station. Your new book sounds award-worthy.

Thanks so much for the overview of all the nominations! So many good movies this year that it would be hard to choose. Love the sound of your new book :)

There is something about being able to pick the correct winner that I enjoy. As always some movies deserve the award more than others and yet, surprises happen! Thank you ladies!

I used to watch the Oscars every year from the time I was six. I loved the glamour and the movies. But the last few years, I haven't enjoyed them as much. I haven't watched many Oscar nominated movies but choose to watch more indie films.
