And The Nominees Are…

This year it feels like it’s taking forever for the Oscar nominees to be announced. In reality, it’s just as it has always been: the announcement comes on a Tuesday about four weeks ahead of the glitzy ceremony. And today is that day.

2010’s Best Supporting Actress winner Mo’nique will, together with Academy President Tom Sherak, take the stage in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater to reveal the nominees for 10 categories:  Leading Actor, Leading Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Animated Feature Film, Directing, Foreign Language Film, Adapted Screenplay, Original Screenplay and Best Picture.

As mentioned previously, we’re holding thumbs for Life, Above All for a Best Foreign Language nod. It stands a strong chance of going through to the nominations stage, after making it to the shortlist of 9.

As for the link between the recent Golden Globes and the upcoming Oscars, LA Times awards blog ran the numbers to find out just how accurately the Globes have “predicted” winners at the Oscars in years gone by. It found that in the last 6 years, only once has the same movie won the top trophy at both award ceremonies: Slumdog Millionaire. Over the past 65 years though, the two have agreed on best picture a majority of times. The site goes on to say that over the last several decades, the overlap is about 60-70% in the acting races. So we could be looking at a list that closely resembles the one drawn up for the Globes, give or take a few names. Plus, of course, the added bonus of having five more Best Picture contenders too.

  1. What’s up?

    I found this article very interesting…please read!

    Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.

    It tells a story of how these “agents” are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…

    You also may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

    …Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!

    GOD is sending out His end time warning:

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    Seek Jesus while He may be found…God bless!
