Oscar night is here! In years past, the Oscars have been my thing. I loved watching nominated film after nominated film, filling out a ballot with my predictions, cheering for my favorites, and (of course) checking out all those dresses.
My movie-watching game has suffered a bit since becoming a mom. I haven't seen many of this year's nominated films, but I'm still really excited for tonight. I love the hoopla of it all. (Side note- I wish hoopla stayed in Hollywood where it belongs and kept its nose out of the presidential race.)
Anyway, everyone is saying this is Leo's year, and I hope they are right. I haven't seen The Revenant, but I don't even think that really matters. This actor has done so much Oscar-worthy work that it's a shame he doesn't already have a handful of golden guys. So, I hope this really is DiCaprio's night.
These are my favorite movies of his:
Romeo+Juliet (1996) The Departed (2006) Blood Diamond (2006) Inception (2010)
Lastly, I'll never forget where Leo came from, and I hope he doesn't forget either: Growing Pains.
