Countdown to Oscars 95 this Sunday !!!
The 95th Academy Awards Ceremony is on this Sunday and will be held at the Dolby Theatre in sunny Los Angeles. The event will be televised by ABC and hosted by the infamous Jimmy Kimmel.
We won’t hear ‘Hold My Hand’ by Lady Gaga from Top Gun: Maverick, but Rihanna is set to perform ‘Lift Me Up’ from Wakanda Forever.
David Byrne will also perform ‘This Is A Life’ from Everything Everywhere All at Once with the band Son Lux and best -supporting-actress nominee Stephanie Hsu who’s stepping in for Mitski, who’s nominated for the song.
There’s a weather watch on for Oakville right now and it’s really snowing outside. If you’re home (your plane might be grounded) for March Break, cozy up and binge watch some of the nominated films that you haven’t seen.
‘I’m sticking to my guy like a stamp to a letter.
Like birds of a feather we stick together.
I’m tellin’ you from the start, I can’t be torn apart from my guy.’
My Guy ~ Mary Wells
