Oscar Buzz

Remember good ol' Peter from Love Actually?


Who knew this guy would make his way to an Oscar Nomination in 12 Years A Slave?


Both amazing movies, in my opinion.

Have you seen 12 Years A Slave? Chiwetel Ejiofor did a phenomenal job.
It's definitely not a feel good movie, by no means, but it was very well done, with amazing acting, that deserves all of the Oscar buzz it's been getting.

Also, speaking of phenomenal jobs, I have to brag here a little....

Verner's brother-in-law, Steve, has been NOMINATED FOR AN OSCAR!!!

We just found out this morning, as did the rest of the Oscar nom's, and we're all very excited about it!

Steve worked on the sound editing for All Is Lost, starring Robert Redford, and if you haven't seen this movie, I definitely recommend doing so!


What's so unique about this film is that Robert (we're on a first name basis here, obvi) has maybe 5 lines in the ENTIRE movie. Other than that, there is NO speaking. But it hardly matters because the sound is what truly brings this film together. The eerie sounds of the boat creaking and the waves crashing and the storms pouring down. It's pretty amazing, it's no wonder why Steve was nominated! I can't even imagine how much work had to go into something like this.

Congrats, Steve! So proud of you! (I don't know why I'm saying this as if he reads my blog, but ya know, at least it's out there. :) )

So there ya have it. I can finally say I know someone who's been nominated for an oscar. Scratch that off the ol' Bucket List! Now if only Steve could get me IN the movies....then we'd really have something to celebrate! ;) Jusssst kidddinnngggg (sort of...).

  8. That is SO wonderful! I actually saw that Redford film and the sound is absolutely what MADE the movie. The natural sounds (wind, water, when he shoots the flare off...!) I really loved the film and what a talent Steve is, I will be wishing him the best! Began following you from Twitter and glad I found your blog :) xo Georgina at Notes on Lifestyle
