What a night so far!  It was great to see Emma win something that had nothing to do with Harry Potter! And she beat out MERYL STREEP!!!  My daughter and I haven't gotten to see the movie yet, but we will soon I'm sure! And way to rock, Jennifer Lawrence!


  1. Nice post! I haven't been keeping up with these so it's nice to be in the know. I'm a little surprised at the popularity of the Hunger Games. It poses an interesting question that you addressed-apparently literature does play a big part. Wish Avengers would have gotten something though!

    See you on the Leap Frog hop!

    1. I'm not, it was a really good movie! It totally got snubbed on the Golden Globes and the Oscars, though!


I love reading your comments, and will try to respond as much as possible!
