Confession time: I am an awards season junkie. The red carpet, the dresses, the tuxes, the nominees, the hair, the jewelry, the hype, the glamour. Hollywood always brings their A-game and I can only dream of witnessing an event of that magnitude. If only I had a glam squad.
Last night, the Golden Globes kicked off the season and I was glued to E! Live from the Red Carpet watching all the celebrities emerge from their limos and into the flashing lights. I continued to watch every award presentation and every speech until Leo grabbed Best Actor for The Revenant in the finale. And now, I am currently watching the red carpet recap on Fashion Police. For photos, check out E! Online.
I not only love the hype of awards shows, but also the motion pictures and television which inspires recognition. From a young age glued to Bambi, watching movies and diving into TV shows has been a constant hobby. Most of America can relate, as cinema has been very influential on us all. One thing I gain from all these hours of watching is music. My iTunes is stock full of soundtrack songs and I can always picture the scene or a moment while listening. So, this past weekend while I was cuddled under blankets avoiding the cold outside, I grabbed Love Happens out of my DVD collection. This movie stars Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart and is a must see. Add it to your list!
From this movie, I got my soundtrack for the week. Listen below –
Lake Michigan – Rogue Wave
It has subtle lyrics with great instrumentals. Perfect for a cold, January week.
Hope you enjoy.
