It's just over a month left till the 86th Academy Awards which will take place March 2, 2014 in Los Angeles. I have seen quite a few films nominated for Oscars this year so I wanted to review them shortly and make my own predictions. They are all great examples of what kind of motion pictures SHOULD be nominated every year.   American Hustle I'm not 100% sure about this one. The acting was fantastic. All four main characters (Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence) deserve their nominations but the film itself? Really not sure. I think… read more »

Wow, this year's I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! has been fantastic! We were spoilt with a great selection of celebs, Ant and Dec's witty banter was on top form and the whoever came up with the amazingly wicked bush tucker trials this year failed to disappoint. Despite the lack of a blooming jungle romance, we have seen a whole lot of other action from the 2013 camp mates.

ITV1 will be airing an unmissable Coming Out Special Wednesday 11th December at 8pm where they will dish all the dirt on… read more »
