And the Oscar Goes To...

There's a buzz in the air over here at MDF as we are gearing up for the 84th Academy Awards in La La Land! We've got our Oscar picks ready, we're keeping a close eye on the fashions and most importantly, the planned Oscar menu will be delish! 

While we're munching down on our Oscar 'Spread' (AKA, food binge!), we're all cheering for The Artist, The Help and Midnight in Paris! But the noms are in so now, it's simply a cross-your-fingers situation. But, we've prayed to the Oscar Gods and are pulling for Jean Dujardin (The Artist), Octavia Spencer (The Help) and Viola Davis (The Help) to name a few. And of course, our Oscar for Film Editing goes to Anne-Sophie Bion and Michel Hazanavicius of The Artist.

There are numerous more wins that we're hoping for here at the MDF Oscar headquarters (AKA, Hilary's living room), but for now, it's time to doll ourselves up, put the final touches on the balsamic, marinated artichoke hearts and take our places on the Tiffany Blue sofa.

But before signing off - be sure to let us know your picks, faves and nom hopefuls. Cheers and a toast to the nominees - because everyone's a winner! Well, not everyone, but it's good to be nominated right?!

Behind-The-Scenes-Saturdays: The Happy Movie Premiere

Did you know that such a day exists? That's right, 'World Happy Day' has already come and gone but not without our participation as we're in much need and well overdue with a dose of happiness. Plus, we heard an interview of the filmmakers talking about this movie premiere all on one day.

So, here's how it rolled out. One day - 600 locations - same time - one movie. Simple, that's it. And because we're head-over-heals about this concept as well as global delight and good cheer, we just had to go. 

But, we don't want to give away too much other than to say, put on your happy pants and get yourselves out there, find a showing of The Happy Movie and partake in the  world-wide movement of glee!

And P.S., in case you forgot, here's a little reminder of what it means to be happy:


adjective, -pi·er, -pi·est.
delighted, pleased, or glad, as over a particular thing: to behappy to see a person.
