Oscars 2014 Live-Blog

It’s Oscars night and once again I’m sitting up until the wee hours live blogging both the red carpet and the ceremony itself. I’m sure I’ll start the evening perky, snarky and as funny as I ever get. By 4.30 am – the approximate end time of the event – I’ll be semi-hysterical and blabbering more than ever. I do hope you stick around…

2014 Blogging Resoultions

Well, 2014. Who expected that to come around so quickly? Not me – I still can’t believe it’s a year and a half since the London 2012 Olympics.

Oscars 2013 Predictions

It’s Oscars Day and I’m excited. I love the Oscars, I love the good and the bad outfits. I love the gushing speeches and the losers proving why they lost by not being able to act happy for the winners. On the other hand I can’t stand the moaning minnies who complain that it’s all back-slapping and aren’t there more important things in the world to be concerned about…

Baftas (almost) live blog

Last year I had a lot of fun live-blogging the Oscar’s ceremony so I’m going to do the same again this year and thought I’d also blog the British Academy Awards. It’s only an almost live blog as it’s live blogging the television broadcast..

Hey Robbie, what’s wrong with the #twittercritic?

The Daily Telegraph’s chief film critic Robbie Collin has written a rather snooty article today criticising an advertising agency for using reviews from Twitter users in their latest poster for The Impossible….
