Oscar Giveaway – Day 4

First of all, I love all the comments, they make my day a little brighter 🙂 and  I’m so excited to give away the prize! I hope you don’t have some grandiose idea that I’m going to surprise you with tickets to the Oscars or some wild after party where Wolfgang Puck is whipping up truffles in the kitchen. But I think this prize is way better than some fancy mushrooms anyway!

there's the red carpet...OMG!!!

Well, I definitely couldn’t go without choosing “Best Original Screenplay” as one of the categories since, after all, any good film starts with the writing. I’ve also seen two of the movies in this category, and I loved them both. “Bridesmaids” was hilarious and I saw “Midnight in Paris” twice. I also want to try and squeeze in “The Artist” before Sunday, along with some more drinking.

1. Who is your Oscar prediction for “Best Original Screenplay”?

(Nominees: The Artist written by Michael Hazanavicius, Midnight in Paris written by Woody Allen, Margin Call written by J.C. Chandor, A Separation written by Asghar Farhadi and Bridesmaids written by Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig)

What’s with the weird names this year? Asghar Farhadi? He won’t win, his name sounds too much like a terrorist. Margin Call is another movie I haven’t heard of, so that can’t win. The Artist has a shot even though it’s a silent movie (so should that even be in the writing category?) I really want Bridesmaids to win, but it won’t, so I’ll go with Woody Allen for Midnight in Paris! (fun fact: Woody Allen has the most nominations of anyone in this category)

2. If you were to write an original screenplay about a bridesmaid that gets lost at midnight in Paris and meets an artist who just went through a separation after receiving a margin call from his investment broker, what would be the title of your film?  









Contest Rules:

Each day there will be two Oscar-related questions. Post your answers in the comment section. Each comment is an entry into the giveaway. At the end of the week a winner will be chosen at random. The contest will conclude on Saturday 2/25. You get extra entries for posting Death to Hollywood – the Contest on Facebook or Twitter, and “liking” the Death to Hollywood page on Facebook.

1. You have to be at least 18 years old to enter (that’s for legal reasons. We do NOT want minors winning a prize)

2. You have to live in the United States because I think shipping internationally is a hassle.

3. You have to answer two Oscar related questions as a comment on the blog.

4. It doesn’t matter if you’ve seen any of the nominated movies (most of them probably suck anyway)


About Death To Hollywood

My name is Celeste Donohue and I am a writer/comedian who started this blog to tell stories about my life growing up in a funeral home and my adult life which I have spent in Hollywood, California – hence the name, “Death To Hollywood”. Hopefully, you like to read those kinds of stories. If not, go read something serious and boring.....

    1. Woody Allen, but I hate to see perverts win anything!!!

    2. “Fugue State” but the bridesmaid would have to end up arriving naked at the wedding when she “recovers” from her fugue state ( they’re always found naked walking down the freeway, or in a park)

  3. Julie H. says:

    1) Michael Hazanavicius…. because Hollywood thinks it’s hip.

    2) That sounds like an awful movie.. so “Gigli 2”.

    Woody Allen,he is just so clever.Love,Mom

  5. Robynne says:

    1. Woody Allen married his kid, so no Oscar for him. I don’t think they give Oscars to people who use their initials instead of their name, so none for J.C. Chandor, even though his initials are the same as Jesus’s. And if the Academy has to choose between two guys they’ve never heard of and women who wrote a comedy, it will be a tie between Michael Hazanavicius and Asghar Farhadi.

    2. “Adaptation”.
