A really cool Academy Award Show

Katta took the picture

Yesterday it was time for a tradition for me and my friends. An all-nighter with dinner at the Academy Awards.

We were at Henric’s place, five people, are a three course meal, dressed at our best. Then we watched the pre-show, the red carpet and the show itself.

Ellen DeGeneres was the host, and she is so good. Really fun, sweet and nice. One fun thing was at one point at the show she asked the actors if they were hungry, and asked if she should order some pizza. And after a while, a pizza delivery man came. And he wasn’t an actor, but and actual pizza parlour employee who got a delivery of a lifetime, to bring pizza there and let some of the world’s most famous actors eat.


Another thing was when Ellen wanted to create the most retweeted picture ever on Twitter. And she did. She took a selfie with her and some of the coolest actors there where, and when she posted the photo Twitter broke because so many wanted to share the photo. Over 2,5 million people did so, including me.

Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Merryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ellen DeGeneres, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Angeleina Jolie och Lupita Nyong'o and her brother. So much epicness in one picture possible!


There where many good movies nominated this year, and I had actually seen everyone nominated for Best picture. Dallas Buyers Club and Gravity won the most, but only the first one deserved it. Other favorites this year was Her, Philomena and Captain Phillips.


When the show was over at 6am, I got home and was able to get one and a half hour of sleep before I had to go to work. So, not that much sleep but it was worth it. The Oscars are so much fun, and especially if you can share it with your friends.

A lot of fun since last time

I am currently blogging for my newspaper about the Swedish selection to Eurovision Song Contest, Melodifestivalen, and therefore I haven’t had that much time to blog here. Sorry!


So, a little sum up.


There was the Olympics, in which Sweden did very well. The best event was the women’s ski relay, where Charlotte Kalla was on the last leg. She started half a minut after the others but fought hard and caught up with the others and could go for gold in the last second.

In total Sweden got 15 medals, most ever in a winter game. Awesome!


Last week something really cool happened to me. As a birthday present I had got tickets to go see a magic show by Joe Labero in Malmö with my parents. First we were to eat dinner. When we entered the restaurant I saw someone who looked like my friend Anna S. But it couldn’t be, cause she wasn’t in Malmö. But then I also saw someone who looked like Linus…

It turned out that my friends Anna S, Anna B, Linus, Henric and Andreas all were in the restaurant, waiting to surprise me. They had cooked it up with my parents to come and surprise me, and also join us for both dinner and the show. I got really surprised and happy that my friends and parents had done this for me behind my back.


Some of you might have followed my blog about Melodifestivalen. Next week it’s the final. This year many great songs have went to the final, but the show it self hasn’t been the best. I hope for either Helena Paparizou, Alcazar or Sanna Nielsen to win.


Tomorrow it’s the Oscars, and I will be up all night to watch the event. This year I have also seen all the movies nominated for Best picture.
