Everyone should have crossed the Greenwich Meridian* by now, so I assume it’s safe to wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day. Here, have a rose:
Because Day 1 of the just so happens to coincide with St. Valentine’s Day, what better way to kick-start the countdown to the Academy Awards on 24 February, than this series of Valentine’s Day ecards over at the Oscars page? Created by Nan Lawson, they feature exchanges from five classic films.
Gone with the Wind
West Side Story
It Happened One Night
The Sound of Music
A day may come when I can read these quotes and instantly pick out which movies they were taken from, but unfortunately it is not this day.
*I have a feeling that’s something scientifically inaccurate about that line. Forgive me if that is indeed the case.
^Why ten, though? Why not 7 Days to the Oscars, or a fortnight? I suppose, in a way, that’s like asking why end-of-the-year lists are always ten and only ten films (though the Oscars Best Picture nominees number 9 this year). No one really knows.
