Road to Platinum🏆

Slight gaming update, finally getting started with God of War. I’ve gotten the platinum for most of the games in the series:

• God of war (2018)

• God of War III

• God of War: Ascension

Whew, I haven’t played this game in years but I’m like a teenager again. Hopefully it holds up.

I’ll be sure to give updates as I progress through my gaming goals this year.

Thanks for reading!

2020 Oscar Predictions Results

Wooooooow, this year’s Oscars has by far been my favorite to watch. I’m extremely happy with all of the wins for the first time since I fell in love with movies in the 90’s. I was a little off on sound editing and mixing. I also didn’t predict hair and makeup but the obvious choice was Bombshell. Now let’s go through my predictions and see how I did.

Note: a lot of these were predictable, with not must to say but I’ll give my thoughts on my wrong choices and big things I’m happy about.


Best Animated Short Feature🏆

• Dcera (Daughter)

• Hair Love

• Kitbull

• Memerable

• Sister

It was my pick and it’s the first time I was really excited about an animated short. So heartwarming ♥️


Supporting Actress🏆

• Kathy Bates – Richard Jewell

• Margot Robbie – Bombshell

• Scarlett Johansson – Jojo Rabbit

• Florence Pugh – Little Women

Laura Dern – Marriage Story ✅

She basically won because of her monologue at the end of the Marriage Story. I loved it, if you haven’t seen the movie, please give it a watch!


Best Costume Design🏆

• Mark Bridges – Joker

• Christopher Peterson – The Irishman

Jacqueline Durran – Little Women ✅

• Mayes C. Rubeo – Jojo Rabbit

• Arianna Phillips – Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

• Sandy Powell – The Irishman


Best Original Song🏆

• “I Can’t Let You Throw Yourself Away” – Toy Story 4

• “I’m Gonna Love Me Again” – Rocketman ✅

• “l’m Standing With You” – Breakthrough

• “Into The Unknown” – Frozen II

• “Stand Up” – Harriet

I mean it’s Elton freaking John!!!!


Best Original Music Score🏆

Joker

• Little Women

• Marriage Story

• 1917

• Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker


Best Supporting Actor🏆

• Tom Hanks – A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

• Anthony Hopkins – The Two Popes

• Al Pacino – The Irishman

• Joe Pesci – The Irishman

Brad Pitt – Once Upon A Time In Hollywood ✅

Absolutely amazing to see Brad Pitt get his first acting Oscar. With all of his recent struggles, I’m really happy to see him celebrated.


Best Foreign Language Film🏆

• Corpus Christi – Poland

• Honeyland – North Macedonia

• Les Misérables – France

• Pain and Glory – Spain

Parasite – South Korea ✅


Best Production Design🏆

1917

• Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

• The Irishman

• The Lion King

1917

• Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker


Best Animated Feature🏆

• How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

• I Lost My Body

• Klaus ❌

• Missing Link

Toy Story 4 ⭐️

I was definitely thinking Klaus would win, because of how the Academy treats sequels. Especially Disney sequels. Toy Story 4 was my pick of who should win, so I’m super happy it did.


Best Adapted Screenplay🏆

• The Irishman

Jojo Rabbit ⭐️

• Joker

• Little Women ❌

• The Two Popes

I expected Little women to win this to right the wrongs of not nominating a female director, but I’m RRALLY happy Taika Waititi won. He’s become one of my favorite directors recently.


Best Original Screenplay🏆

• Knives Out

• Marriage Story

• 1917

• Once Upon A Time In Hollywood ❌

Parasite ⭐️

Wow, this category was really tough for me. My feelings were all over the place. On one hand I really wanted Marriage Story to get it, and on the other hand I felt like Parasite was the film that actually deserved it. Then there’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood…. and In my brain, “oh it’s definitely taking it, because Hollywood loves Hollywood!” So glad I was wrong.


Best Actor🏆

• Antonio Banderas – Pain and Glory

• Leonardo DiCaprio – Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

• Adam Driver – Marriage Story

Joaquin Phoenix – Joker ✅

• Jonathan Pryce – The Two Popes

We knew… well deserved win for him. He absolutely made this movie.


Best Actress🏆

• Cynthia Erivo – Harriet 👎🏾

• Scarlett Johansson – Marriage Story

• Saoirse Ronan – Little Women

• Charlize Theron – Bombshell

• Renée Zellweger – Judy ✅

I predicted this but I gotta be honest Scarlett should have won this… sigh!


Best Director🏆

• Quentin Tarantino – Once Upon A Time In Hollywood ❌

• Todd Phillips – Joker

Bong Joon-ho – Parasite ⭐️

• Sam Mendes – 1917 ❌

• Martin Scorsese – The Irishman

Bong Joon-ho BEAT a one-take movie!!!! 🙌🏾


Best Picture🏆

• Ford v Ferrari

• The Irishman

• Jojo Rabbit

• Joker

• Little Women

• Marriage Story

• 1917 ❌

• Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood

Parasite ⭐️

Finally a international film wins best picture, I’m so happy 1917 did not win this. I’m tired of war movies just getting shine simply because its a war movie. War are completely Oscar bait to me, but This year couldn’t have been any better for film lovers!!

My Top 3 Favorite Gaming Releases of 2019!🎮

I’m super late on this but I don’t care! I wanna get this out. 😂 2019 was a pretty good year for gaming! So many good releases but these 3 stood out the most to me.

3.) Concrete Genie

Thank you, pixelopus for such a fun, awesome, and heartwarming experience. A game that I can relate to and has quickly became one of my favorite games of all time. The perfect example of keeping things simple and fun! 🎮🎨

2.) Days Gone

Wow, the critics had so much to say about this game. Yes it has its flaws, it was sent out to reviewers unpolished, but with all of that I had a fun time with it. Fighting hordes is so damn fun!!! The motorcycle upgrade system was awesome, and I can’t wait to for the sequel that is definitely coming!🎮🧟

1.) Resident Evil 2

Hands down my game of the year! RE2 is my favorite from the PsX era. I love what they did with Mr. X, the slight changes in the environment, and the free DLC was, while not great, but fun and challenging enough to keep me coming back for new scores. It was also a fun Platinum to pop, I LOVED it. 🎮♥️

Thank you for reading!😁

I Want You To SHINE!

I never thought I’d do this, sharing portions of my life story for everyone to read and critique. I mean, this is not exactly an autobiography… I don’t think my life calls for comprehensive documentation anyway. With that being said, I talk about my true feelings in this blog, and real problems also. Please do NOT take this as me just taking the chance to bash on any of my exes, family members, or past friends. Names will not be changed or omitted, I don’t care about the innocent or these people’s feelings.


My hopes and dreams for this BLOG: I hope it will be amusing. I hope it will be entertaining. I hope it will make you laugh, and make you think. I hope it won’t be the last thing you read about gaming actually helping people. I hope this blog helps you understand me better, and inspire you to be yourself. I hope this encourages you to follow your dreams. I’m just hopeful that you take a second to open your mind, embrace your fears, learn from my failures, celebrate your victories and run head first into your problems. I’m not doing this blog to impress my friends, I want you to go out and take on the world, despite what anyone says. I want you to SHINE and play whatever console you prefer to play.


P.S. This is of course a gaming blog… I love Playstation, but this isn’t just about playstation. The Switch is quickly becoming one of my favorite consoles of all time. I loved the Xbox 360, and I will not tolerate the toxicity that’s going around in the gaming community. Nerd culture in general is becoming almost unbearable. So be respectful, be kind, be understanding, and
I’ll be here Trophy Hunting if you need me..
