Hollywood is abuzz with excitement. This year should prove to be spectacular. The ladies and their attire are the cause of much speculation and the talk of the town. Will the gowns be a splash of vivid colour or the more sombre black? Plunging necklines and thighs visible or the more puritan Pilgrim look?
The #metoo World Tour is coming back home to its roots. No hypocrisy or contradictions here in Tinseltown. Just good old down to earth people, with a social conscience doing their bit for the better of mankind. I am among so many like minded souls. It feels like being home in Islington among the intellegencia, creatives, media gurus and acting legends.
This year at the awards the Academy has decided to honour the profession by creating several new categories:
Best performing female actor for a leg over
Best performing female actor in achieving a leg up in the business
Most virtuous female actor (this category has so many worthy nominees)
Most powerful female vocals in the #metoo campaign.
A special ‘junior’ category has been created to recognise those who are mentoring aspiring young Actors.This category is strictly for those who enjoy working with the under 18’s. The Academy felt that since Hollywood has so many working in this field, it was time to recognise their contributions. The nominees in this category are very modest and tend to shy away from publicity.
Best Producer with a hands-on approach to talent spotting starlets
Best Producer in a mentoring exchange programme Developing talents, physical acting and career enhancement.
Best Actor with a keen gaydar for mentoring boys
Most comfortable casting couch in the props and scenery category.
Deepest female actor’s throat in the sound category.
Best female actor’s facial close-up shot in the cinematography category.
Best low budget video and stills published in the small studio category. Open to amateur and professional filmmakers.
Best film of all time with an all black cast.
The 90th annual Academy Awards certainly promises to be an exciting ceremony like no other before. It will be a long festive night here in Hollywood.
