    1. I know she's one of your favorites :) We'll see!

  2. Wow, your coverage of these past two years has made me realize just how desolate my Oscar viewing in '35 & '36 is. I haven't seen a single lead nominee from either year. Yikes. Still, I'm still very interesting in what you think :) Especially about Rainer, George, and Muni.

    I've seen a lot in '37, so I'll have more to say then! :D

    1. Haha yeah...in terms of Oscar's earliest contenders, I can't say I've been able to discuss my thoughts with many bloggers--I personally can't wait until I hit the years where that more people have seen!
