Academy Awards 2013

Although I’ve long given up on watching awards, it’s always interesting to see who won an Oscar after all. No real surprises on the winners list for me this year and no gem like last year’s The Artist. Had Emmanuelle Riva won, I’d be a little more enthusiastic but that’s not how it works in Hollywood. I’m considerably happy about Argo though and think it’s great that Adele got a nod from the Academy.

Here’s the list for y’all, my fellow film enthusiasts, to find your personal favorites. As usual, you can find more on

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I was talked into starting this blog, nagged by three very dear friends who are probably tired of hearing my babbling about Hollywood classics. Although actually they said they would love to read about it: my finds, my rediscoveries, my recommendations and likes.

So this is how it starts: three posts each week, commencing today.

  • Mondays: Talkie if the Week
  • Wednesdays: TV Classics
  • Fridays: Miscellaneous. Actresses, actors. Hollywood fun facts.

Please check the “about” section for additional info and my list of previous and future posts, as well as the tags. If you’re looking for places to buy Hollywood classics, please have a look at my link section. Barbara Hale has her own section and Perry Mason, too, so please feel invited to explore those, too.

Any further questions? Don’t hesitate to ask!
