Brits at the Oscars #BriFri — 8 Comments

  1. I didn’t watch the Oscars – I did the “spin through news’ after – It was more than enough. Oldman’s performance was marvelous as Churchill…. I never thought anyone would do as well with that role as Robert Hardy did years ago in The Wilderness Years (He’s a favorite of mine from playing Sigfried in All Creatures Great and Small on PBS) – but Oldman lived up to my hopes. Helen Mirren can recite the telephone book and it will be marvelous to me…

  2. Actually I am picking up Darkest Hour this evening on my way home from work. I love my library as they get the latest movies so I benefit. Looking forward to seeing Gary Oldman’s performance.

  3. I thought the Oscar’s was the best in years. Granted living on the west coast it did not keep me from my sleep. I saw Darkest Hour and it is one of those films that if the acting was not suburb it would have been less. Gary Oldman disappeared completely. The only time I think I saw the actor instead of Winston was when a shot from behind he was walking and he was walking rather quickly. Now I have to see Dunkirk.

  4. Brightly Burning is a retelling of Jane Eyre set in space. It’s not technically British 🙂 But I figure that if people love the original Jane Eyre–which definitely is–then they may be interested in this new book too 😉
