The Sunshine Blogger Award works like most blogging awards: Thank the person(s) who nominated you, answer their questions, nominate up to ten people in return, and give them ten questions to answer. It’s easy enough to do and a lot of fun, so let’s get started! First, the questions from Film & Nuance
What are your plans for 2017?
Finish the rough draft of my dissertation BEFORE December. That’s my biggest plan. Other plans include presenting a paper in NYC, watching even more movies in the theater and hopefully wearing my first Star Wars cosplay in March 🙂
How do you chill and relax?
Sit back and watch movies, Hulu, or random television shows. I also love reading books or crocheting while I have the tv on.
What, in life, are you most grateful for?
My health, having a roof over my head, also having my adorable cat Zelda.
How do you deal with regrets?
As much as is humanly possible, I try to live without regrets. If I can’t avoid them, I do my best to process them and move on.
You could hang out with one person (still alive) for a day and you could go anywhere, who would you go with and where?
*grins* I’m hanging out with Jared Leto on a beach in the Caribbean 🙂
Sunrise or sunset?
Name the one place you have to visit before you die.
Paris and/or Rome.
Which movie do you think will win Best Picture at this year’s Oscars, and which movie do you hope will win (if they are not already the same)?
I strongly suspect La La Land is going to somehow sweep the Oscars this year (including Best Picture). I’d love to see Arrival win though.
What’s your favourite indie film?
Dallas Buyers Club
What’s your favourite book?
I don’t really have ONE favorite book, but if I had to pick, I’d say The Lord of the Rings.
And the questions from The Marckoguy
Is there any movie you tend to rewatch a lot more than others?
I love to watch The Merchant of Venice (2004)
What’s your favorite band or artist?
30 Seconds to Mars 🙂
Do you listen to any podcasts (if so, which)?
Does recording my own count as listening to one?
Are you good at cooking?
That depends on what I’m trying to cook.
How many movies did you watch in the cinema in 2016?
Most anticipated movie of this year (2017)?
Star Wars: The Last Jedi (runner ups include Beauty and the Beast, Logan and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and also Thor: Ragnarok if I’m honest).
Have you ever broken a bone?
Broken? No. Fractured? Yes!!
Do you have any pets?
I have a spoiled-rotten calico named Zelda.
What’s a movie that you think is very overrated?
La La Land.
Do you own any movie/TV/video game merchandise?
Yes. I’m very proud of my Sword Art Online collection.
Is there any place in the world that you really want to visit before you die?
Paris, and/or Rome. Though if you get me into the Louvre you might not get me out again.
I love answering these questions 🙂 Now for my nominees…..
And my questions are:
