I think it’s going to be awesome. And not just because I am convinced Ben Affleck reads this blog, but also because I predicted it would happen back in March, 2011.
Well, kind of predicted it. I think I was close enough with this picture I posted.
My selected winners are in red.
1. I haven’t seen any of the short films nominated but I am confident with the guesses I made.
2. I made some more guesses in some other categories I don’t have a clue about.. like Art Direction and Costume and Sound and Editing and stuff like that.
3. I hated Tree of Life last year. This year I don’t hate any of the films nominated, even though I found Lincoln quite boring. Maybe it’s because I’m not American. Or a history buff. I still believe in Daniel Day-Lewis though, mainly because I thought he had a lovely beard.
4. I just want to suggest to all filmmakers that next year they try to keep the lengths of the movies down. I understand that “Life of Pi” had to be approx. 3 hours and 14 minutes, but did we really need all those Russell Crowe musical numbers in “Les Miserables”? Not to mention “Beasts of the Southern Wild” which could have been cut down with at least one beast.

I know what you all are thinking; “Sika, have you been out partying all nights of the week with celebrities with one girl under each arm, drinking champagne and ended up having orgies with models and stuff?”
Yes. And also my computer broke. But now I am back with a new one, so get ready for a bunch of upcoming hilarious posts. I haven’t written any of them yet, but I’m working on some stuff with working titles like;

Infiltrating Swedish Television.
Fat Ballet Girl.
Top 10 Annoying TV Characters 2012.

Wow, congratulations to us! We just reached 1,000,000 visits here at the blog so me and Lunki celebrated with coffee at our favorite cafe. We go there all the time, but this time we walked in with our heads held high.
When we reach 2,000,000 we plan on getting some cake too. Or at least a couple of cookies.
Remember the show Ally McBeal and how the main character often heard songs in her head? I do that too!! I hum the “Love Theme from The Godfather” whenever I’m walking somewhere. I’ve done it for years.
That’s pretty much all I have in common with Ally McBeal though. I (sadly) do not suffer from bulimia, I have no law degree (or degree of any kind for that matter), I make no money and I find an aging Harrison Ford pretty disgusting.
What song is in your head when you’re walking around?
As you might have noticed, we’ve had a summer hiatus here at the blog. But now we are back! Well, I am back NOW, Janne the Director has been back for days and has already angered millions (potentially) of Batman fans by posting a negative review of The Dark Knight Rises. If you haven’t read it, you should. It’s really funny. And spot-on.
So.. here’s a recap of what has happened since I posted something last. I have watched tons of sports. The Summer Olympics in London almost gave me an overdose. I’m not sure why I watched as much sport as I did, but I suddenly found myself having both the TV and a couple of webcasts
going simultaneously. I just had to know who won the women’s individual Archery competition, at the same time as I had to find out who the better field hockey team was, Argentina or Australia!
Sweden was kind of a disappointment at the Games with 8 medals, ranking them the 37th country at the medal table. You might think “Hey, that’s not too shabby for a country with a population of only 9.5 million people!” I thought so too, at first, until I discovered that Switzerland ranked 33rd and they have even less people in their population! But I don’t care, the Swedes fought well, most of them, and we did get a silver in the men’s handball tournament which made my whole summer.
And speaking about sports, since Zlatan Ibrahimovic left AC Milan for Paris Saint-Germain, I am presently a PSG fan. My philosophy is “Don’t follow a team, follow a player”.
Okay, what else can I tell you..? We have almost completed the Swedish pilot we’ve been working on. It has taken time, mostly because of the summer hiatus and because, well because I am not a hard worker. I can’t wait for it to be finished so we can send it off to Swedish Television. We’re almost nearly done, it might be completed in the next couple of weeks.
Oh, I almost forgot! I also bought and devoured Columbo – The Complete Series [DVD]! That might explain why the pilot has taken so long to finish…
