the weekend list no. 30 (+ oscars predictions!)


Happy Saturday! The weather took a turn for the gloomy this weekend but I'm feeling okay about it, as it's an excuse to stay home to read books and catch up on a few movies before the Oscars. Also, I have a warm-weather trip coming up very soon!

Without even realizing it, three of the links I'm sharing this week are actually nutrition-oriented! 

I'm obviously fascinated with ballerinas and their daily food intake provides some good meal inspiration.

This article about the business behind Revolve was really interesting. I was surprised by how little I knew about the company!

Really enjoyed this article about American vs. French food culture.

Bess wrote a post recently about how she balances staying in shape while also enjoying things like wine, desserts, etc. Really good perspective on a sustainable healthy lifestyle!

So, the Oscars are tomorrow! I'm not sure yet if I'll be watching from home or going out to watch somewhere else, but I do have my predictions. This year was difficult because my predictions for what will win really don't line up with what I think should win, unfortunately. I mean, The Florida Project wasn't even nominated and honestly, that would be one of my two picks for Best Picture.

I won't go through the whole list, but here are my guesses and hopes for the big categories:

Best Picture:
What Will Win: Shape of Water
What I Want To Win: Call Me By Your Name

Best Director
What Will Win: Guillermo del Toro
What I Want To Win: Greta Gerwig

Best Actor
What Will Win: Timothée Chalamet (I know everyone thinks it will be Gary Oldman but I feel like Timmy will take this one)
What I Want To Win: Timothée Chalamet

Best Actress
What Will Win: Frances McDormand
What I Want To Win: Saoirse Ronan

Best Supporting Actor
What Will Win: Sam Rockwell or Willem Dafoe (I'm split)
What I Want To Win: Willem Dafoe

Best Supporting Actress
What Will Win: Allison Janney
What I Want To Win: Allison Janney

Best Adapted Screenplay
What Will Win: Call Me By Your Name
What I Want To Win: Call Me By Your Name (can I put this in all caps?!)

Best Original Screenplay
What Will Win: Get Out (People are saying Ladybird but I think everyone loves Get Out so much that this will be where it wins)
What I Want To Win: Get Out, although The Big Sick would also be a pick.
