MY OSCAR WINNERS

 

Film is an incredible, amazing thing. Personally, it is one of the closest things we have to magic, and a certain film can make you feel every emotion under the sun for thousands of different reasons. Each person can interpret the same film differently. A film can retell history, or show who the true, unspoken heroes really are. A film can heal or break a person. A film can remind you of a special time in your life, or a special person. A film can let you travel the world and see new cultures that you didn't even know existed. And sometimes a film is just life-changing.

There are lots of reasons why I love film and cinema the way I do, but mostly, I love the emotions they can muster from deep inside. The combination of the score, editing, visual effects and simple storytelling can make or break a film. Some flop and fumble through the box-office, but some will triumph and become classics for years to come. 

That is why I love the Oscars (and award season in general....). One night a year, where incredibly talented artists from different genres and areas of filmmaking, come together to celebrate each other's work. 

Which is why I have chosen my dream winners for this year (some of the categories were too hard to just choose one so I picked two...or four....). All nominees completely deserve their nomination, but these special people are in need of that gold statue...
