Quvenzhané Wallis, “Beasts of the Southern Wild

“Lincoln” is at the top of the pack with 12 nominations while “Life of Pi” is in second with 11 noms, and “Silver Linings Playbook” has 8. I am most interested in seeing if Denzel Washington wins for Best Male actor in his role in “Flight.” I feel that he is an incredible actor that did not get his justice when he first began to act. I’m also interested to see which director will take the Oscar. I love Steven Spielberg and his work, but “Life of Pi” was a beautiful piece of work, visually. It’s also interesting the “Django” is a part of this as well since it just recently came out. And lastly, I am rooting for the youngest nominee on the list, Quvenzhané Wallis. I saw the trailer for “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and she is amazing, plus she is only 9 years old! What are your picks for this year’s Oscars?

I am new to blogging...but let me tell you I have been writing since I was 5 years old. My mom still has the mini books that I made in Kindergarten. As a single mother of two boys and a full blown Gemini, my outlook on life has many ups and downs. Nothing frees me more than writing. My biggest prayer is that my words help someone who is going through rough times and makes them smile...or at least laugh a little.
