Oscars 2019/20 – Winners and Reaction

I will […]

Golden Globes – Results and Highlights

With my predictions I managed to get 12 categories right, which is something I’m happy with as the Globes are incredibly unpredictable. Personal Highlights – Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Fleabag getting big wins – Jodie Comer spilling a drink on herself and trying to discretely tidy up – Gervais’ monologue, especially the DiCaprio and Scorsese jokes […]
