Thinking Out Loud Thursday - February 21, 2019

Hey guys - happy Thursday!  It's time for another edition of Thinking Out Loud.  Today I'm thinking about the Oscars and how excited I am to watch the show this Sunday!

I'm not going to lie - I love the Oscars!  I love trying to watch all the movies nominated for awards.  I love hearing all the predictions and speculations leading up to the big show.  I love watching all the beautiful dresses parade down the red carpet.  I just love it all!

Eric and I try to see all the movies nominated for Best Picture.  This year eight movies were nominated ~
Black Panther
Bohemian Rhapsody
The Favourite
Green Book
A Star is Born

We've seen six of the eight.  The two we've missed are Roma (available on Netflix) and BlacKkKlansman (available on Amazon Video).  How many do you have crossed off your list?  With a lot of luck, I'll be able to watch the remaining two and get them crossed off my list just in time for the curtain to go up on the show.

The actual show itself has been a hot mess this year.  The Academy has made a couple decisions that have been quickly overturned and then there's the whole Kevin Hart withdrawing as the host.  This will be the first year since 1989 that the show has no host.  Sadly, the 1989 show is commonly known as the worst Oscars ever.  Man, let's hope they've learned a thing or two over the last 30 years and the 2019 show won't be the new worst show ever!

If you would like to record your predictions of who will win, use the printable ballot found HERE.  I've got my printed and ready to go!

Some of the highlights I'm most looking forward to is seeing the newly single Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper sing Shallow together, Barbra Streisand present a Best Picture nomination and hopefully seeing Queen take the stage.  

So that's what I'm thinking out loud about today.  What's on your mind?  Link up and share!

Inlinkz Link Party


  1. I only saw Black Panther and A Star Is Born (which I honestly just HATED despite all the hype). We used to be huge movie goers but seem to hardly ever go anymore.

  2. The only one I saw this year was Black Panther, but thanks for letting us know Roma is on Netflix now- I'm going to check it out! I heard about the Kevin Hart thing but I didn't realize they hadn't gotten a replacement! Yikes!

  3. I saw everything but Roma. I am actually quite mad at the Academy as they didn't Ryan Coogler a nod for Best Director for directing Black Panther. I guess it is more of a personal deal as I am friends with Ryan's dad. Have a wonderful Thursday.

  4. I have not seen any yet - I am way too cheap to spend money on a movie out - I wait until they are on Redbox or free

  5. Have fun watching the show! I watch a little of it, mainly for the fashion!

  6. I used to love watching the Oscars, but the last few years have been a mess...

  7. I have only seen A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody but I loved them both. I will be watching on Sunday but I do hope it is a decent show! The last few years haven't been great.

  8. You dont really think gaga is single do you? It may not be official but I'm pretty sure her and bradley are playing house. I loaned him out, haha!

  9. I need to step up my movie game because I have only seen Black Panther!! Everyone was talking about A Star is Born and how much it made them cry, I figured Id wait to see it at home. I do want to see the Green Book soon though! Ill have to see what the others are about!

  10. We go to an Oscar Party every year with a bunch of my friends. The Printable is cool. I'm going to download as we bet on who will win.

  11. One year, when I was with The Blended Blog gals, we all came up with our dream Oscar red carpet outfit. That was a lot of fun. So is your ballot. What did you think of The Favourite? And The Green Book? I keep meaning to do a movie review post but can't seem to settle down long enough to write one. Still reading Girl, Wash Your Face, too.
