The Academy Awards

It’s Oscar season, and this year things have changed for me. I love movies, they're good fun, but I've come to appreciate my own life. It's my priority, and I yearn for much more. I'm not interested in the screen too often, and living someone else's tale only through sight and sound has become slightly dissatisfying. All of the five senses are vitally important. Everyone is different, but I have found my current balance and experience movies more intentionally now. Stories and characters inspire, but there will always be a disconnection. I enjoy them for what they are, and am not in need of many. I've only actually seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens this year, and it was beautiful. It has my vote all-round.

Here's what I would like to see win:

Film Editing
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Maryann Brandon and Mary Jo Markey

Music (Original Score)
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
John Williams

Sound Editing
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Matthew Wood and David Acord

Sound Mixing

Andy Nelson, Christopher Scarabosio, and Stuart Wilson

Visual Effects

So let's see what unfolds! Cheers, and happy Oscars watching everyone.
