T-A-T-I-A-N-A M-A-S-L-A-N-Y. It's not that hard to spell. Also, I haven't seen Into the Woods yet, obviously, but I'm already mad about that. As a fan of the original musical, hearing about some of the changes they've made has made me more than a little upset. Just because it has Meryl Streep in it doesn't make it a good movie when will awards shows learn that?

More than a half of nominees-actors come from big screen, how is it even fair? Little chance from TVactors, let alone the ones doing genre shows. And then, Downton Abbey?

Sigh, Tatiana was robbed.
But happy for James Spader, Viola Davis, J.K Simmons and Billy Bob Thornton.

Just realized today that 'Pride' got a Golden Globe nomination for Best Movie.

Went to see it on Boxing Day, with absolutely no expectations. The film is based on a true story of mine workers on strike, getting help from gay activists. I am usually kinda allergic to political films, but this one got me big time.

It's hard to describe it. It is like 'Norma Rae' meets 'Billy Elliot' meets 'A Normal Heart'...and all is turned into a comedy!?! And it works!

This is what the Brits do best. Heartwarming, feelgood, lovely drama/comedy, that just makes you want to hug every character in the movie. I cried, laughed, but most of the time I just had a beaming smile on my face.

What can I say...the film was absolutely wonderful. I think it might be my favorite film of 2014, and it certainly was the best Christmas present.

Good luck 'Pride' at the Golden Globe's in a couple of weeks.
