All Good Things Must Come to an End...

It is with some regret that I am posting to let readers know that The Midnight Movie Review is currently under suspension. However, it's present status is owing to something a little more exciting: Liminal Vision, a new blog which looks at contemporary art, cinema and other things - mostly visual - considering their content. I hope you will enjoy Liminal Vision as much as you may have enjoyed The Midnight Movie Review - the focus has changed but the writing and the ethos is still the same!

2010 Oscar Predictions

Predicting the Academy Award winners has never been my forte, probably because I have a wee bit of difficulty taking my personal views out of the mix. But it's a new year and who's to say that this leopard can't change her spots? So after a lot of consideration and a lot of reminding myself that I don't necessarily share the opinions of the Academy, I've come up with this list of predictions. I haven't speculated upon every category, but then again this is my blog which means I can do whatever the hell I want. So without further ado, below are my 2010 Oscar Predictions, and if I can get just a couple of the little bleeders right, I'll be a one happy and surprisingly objectively minded lady!
