It's very difficult to watch 9 nominated movies in time for the Oscar broadcast but this past Saturday night , my hubby and I rented The Dallas Buyers Club and we were blown away by the performances by Jared Leto and especially Mathew McConaughey. As it turns out both actors received Oscars for their work in that movie . I had also seen Blue Jasmine and thought Cate Blanchett was superb and she also ended up with an oscar. In all, I managed to see 3 of the 9 nominated movies but i managed to see most of the performances that won oscars last night which is a first for me. I must also say that some of the speeches i heard last night (while i was still awake ) were quite good. This was the year for some amazing films so if you're looking for ways to not talk about the cold weather go see some of these great movies!!!!!
