Progress on my film has almost come to a halt. I am not making the progress I would like. I know I will get there eventually but it is frustrating. I am just too tired after work to think and I am just relaxing/sleeping.
The weather is also not helping as is really cold. In March, the weather should improve and hopefully work will be calmer as well and I can play catch up.
I have managed to complete 2 of my 3 the online courses and I have enjoyed them. Start the last one next week, a six week course – script to screen.
The BAFTAs took place on Sunday and there were no real surprises. Leonardo DiCaprio won Best Actor (finally!) and I he should now win the Oscar. I personally feel he should have won for Blood Diamond (2006) as I thought he was brilliant.
Best Film and Best Director for The Revenant (2015) and Alejandro G. Iñárritu was the only winner there could be. I still need to watch Spotlight but after watching The Revenant I just knew I had watched something amazing! As for the other categories, I thought Tom Hardy deserved Best Supporting Actor.
Looking to the Oscars I think there will be some different winners in some categories. I think Saoirse Ronan will win Best Actress for Brooklyn (2015). I have not see Room (2015) but I just think Hollywood will favour Brooklyn over Room and to be fair she is brilliant.
I would also like Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015) to win an Oscar for Best Animation. Come on Aardman!
Looking ahead, Star Wars Episode VIII has started filming this week. Can’t wait to see what they do with story and hope they answer all those questions!
