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.
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.
