My Favorite Movie of the Year (and a Target giveaway)

Can we talk about Les Mis for a moment? Thanks.

It was fantastic. Maybe not the most enjoyable movie, but so moving, powerful, and inspiring.  The emotion was so palpable in the theater and the music, oh the music. “Can You Hear the People Sing” gets me every time.

Did you know the Oscars are this weekend?
Did you also know Les Mis is nominated for:
Best Picture
Best Actor (Hugh Jackman)
Best Actress is Supporting Role (Anne Hathaway)
Costume Design
Make-up and Hairstyling
Production Design

Basically, if its not a Les Mis sweep I’ll be disappointed.

But, given that I won’t be watching it on Sunday, you can bet I’m picking up my copy of PEOPLE Magazine 2013 Oscar Double Issue once it hits the shelves on March 1st! It’ll be better than watching the actual thing because I can rip out the pictures and add them to my inspiration board right? Their red carpet edition has everything from the gowns, the gossip, to awesome pictures. I can’t wait to see what looks Anne and Hugh are sporting (yes, we can appreciate men’s fashion too, right?).

Are you excited for this weekend?
Will you be picking up PEOPLE Magazine’s 2013 Oscar Double Issue and gushing with me?
Oh, and because I love you, one of you is going to win a $20 target giftcard!
 My recommendation? The PEOPLE magazine red carpet edition, some bubble bath, a candle or two, and some sparkling black cherry soda for an evening of relaxation.

  1. wow I didn't know Les mis was nominated for so many things! LOVED that movie. We've seen it twice, and I wanted to see it a third, but justin said we have to wait till it hits the dollar theater or DVD. lol

  2. I absolutely loved Les Miserables and I think anyone who hasn't seen it should. It was remarkable in the theaters and the music is beautiful. In fact, I went to Target and purchased the soundtrack immediately after seeing it! I hope the entire cast is on the cover of People magazine!

  3. To be honest I am terrible at keeping up with celebrity goingons so I dont really even know who is in the running. Haha! I do love Jennifer Lawrence in Hunger Games. So good for a starting actress!

  4. Les Mis way my favorite movie of the year too! and probably of my whole life:)
    I hope they sweep too!!

  5. Definitely can't wait for the Oscars… so exciting to see who will win (and what everyone will be wearing)

  6. I have no idea what celebrity I want to see on the cover of people…

  7. I love watching the awards & the red carpet even more. However, I haven't seen any of this years movies, but I've heard great things. I can't wait to see what Jennifer Lawrence & Reese Witherspoon are wearing!

  8. I would love to see ALL of the starts of Les Mis šŸ™‚ Let's be honest, they're a good looking group.

  9. I would love to see ALL of the starts of Les Mis šŸ™‚ Let's be honest, they're a good looking group.

  10. I would love to see The Rock. He isn't the greatest actor but he is nice to look at!

    Mandy Jean

  11. Oh man, probably Russell Crowe or Hugh Jackman! (Not Anne Hathaway please. haha)

    Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  12. Anne Hathaway for sure! And I mean, I wouldn't mind if Hugh Jackman was on there either šŸ˜‰

  13. Just found your blog new friend! Love your giveaway šŸ™‚ hopefully Jennifer Lawrence, she's so up and coming!

  14. Jennifer Laurence! She's the hottest girl out there right now and so talented.

  15. I loooooove this musical. I thought that, though it doesn't make the most amazing film, the emotional power was breathtaking. I loved that all the music was filmed live and the scene with Anne Hathaway after her first night on the streets made me cry. Though let's be honest, Amanda Seyfried had no place in that movie- she is not a singer.

    Glad you loved it, I did too.


  16. I have been dying to see it forever!!! I can't wait to see it!

  17. Loved les Mis too! I've seen it on broadway twice (once in Paris), and the movie was still better!

  18. I have yet to see the movie. I'm waiting to rent it! I'm excited about it though. šŸ™‚

  19. I want to see Jennifer Lawrence! She is amazing and always looks great.

  20. I'm a huge Jennifer Lawrence fan, so I would love to see her on the cover. šŸ™‚

  21. I love me some Emma Stone. šŸ™‚ That woman is beautiful and hilarious!

  22. I absolutely LOVED Les Mis. Endrelas was probably my favorite character. 'Empty Chairs and Empty Tables' had my heart hurting SO much. I listen to the 10th Anniversary cast recording (with Colm Wilkinson) ALL the time. Like, constantly.

    I wanna see Jennifer Lawrence and Hugh Jackman!
