Funny you should mention "Room". It looks like a good one. I've been planning to watch that on PPV this afternoon while I'm having my grilled chicken dinner.
I'm SOO glad you'll see Room today Cheryl!! I was going to PM you about it!!

I plan to watch the Academy Awards tomorrow! I predict a lot of awards going to "The Revenant".

I prefer taping it so I can fast forward a lot of parts that don't interest me!

I saw "Signs" and wanted it to be better than what it was (on its subject matter about crop circles and aliens), i.e. disappointed.

Yep, I do too if there's any justice. I sure hope that Best Actress goes to Brie Larson in Room however.

Last night 20/20 had a special called "Journey to the Oscars". "Looking at defining moments in the careers of some of the most notable 2016 nominees...."
Brie Larsen was interviewed and explained why she felt compelled to do this movie, and why it touched her heart. Caution, there are some spoilers in the clip, but I'm still going to watch it. I've never heard of her until now, although she played small parts in several movies I've seen.
Matt Damon also weighed in on filming of "The Martian".

Here's the clip to last night's 20/20 interview with Brie.

You're welcome, Kay. Good interviews at that link.

Wow...I'm going to have to watch a comedy after seeing "Room". Made me want to call all 4 of my little grandsons and tell them I love them and am thankful they're safe, happy, and have a good life. I didn't, but I felt like it.

It looks like it was somewhat based on the Jaycee Dugard kidnapping story. The acting was magnificent - that little guy who played Jack deserves an Academy Award of his own, IMO.

I sure agree about little Jacob Tremblay Cheryl...just remarkable!

Aaargh, that link kept freezing on me so I could only read a little bit of it....pretty sure I need to do some updates on my laptop.

Here's another link about Jacob....he's going to be a presenter on the awards this afternoon! I had Tyler this afternoon so just now turned on the TV and internet. I think this little guy is going to go far.

We watched "The Chorus" last night on Netflix. It's a fairly recent French film set in the 1950's. It's about a down on his luck guy who has to take a job as a teacher at a boarding school for juvenile delinquents. He starts a chorus against all the odds.
