And the Award Goes To…

Dear Reader, over the past few months we have been nominated for a few blogging awards, each of which has been heartily celebrated with cake.

We have been saving up these awards so we could present them all in one post. BUT! We are accepting these honours with a bit of a twist.

Normally, with awards, you answer questions and then nominate other bloggers for the award.

Well, today we are re-gifting these awards to the bloggers who nominated us by telling you why we admire their blogs.

Fifty Shades of Reality is unafraid to dive into controversial topics and examine them thoughtfully. One example is this post on Human Trafficking.

No Nonsense with Nuwan Sen always hosts interesting discussions on art, films and life. One of our recent faves is this post describing things to love about France.

Wonderful World of Cinema has infectious enthusiasm for classic film – which is A-OK by us! For example, check out this wonderful birthday tribute to actress Olivia de Havilland.

That Other Critic never fails to make us laugh – and think, which is an excellent combination. One of our fave posts is this analysis of Adam West as the Perfect Batman.

Serendipitous Anachronisms is an amusing and clever blog that makes you want to see featured movies RIGHT NOW! One movie you’ll want to rush out and see is The Bat.

Girls Do Film is a smart, take-no-intellectual-prisoners kind of movie blog that makes you see movies a little differently. One example is this analysis of All About Eve.

But wait! There’s more!


We’ve also been asked to participate in a Three Quotes in Three Days Challenge by No Nonsense with Nuwan Sen and the fab Sarah at First Night Design.

We’re rewriting the rules on this one. Here are the three movie quotes that we use all the time in real life:







  1. Thank you for the mention, it was super sweet, i will definitely check out the other blogs, if they all nominated you they must have good taste! Congrats on all the nominations you deserve them! Go eat more cake, paying the love back makes you a special person!



  2. Thank you very much for the kind words. 🙂
    And it’s great to see Napoleon Dynamite alongside Casablanca and Return of the Jedi. Quite a diverse assortment of quotes!
    I’ll have to take a look at the other blogs that were mentioned now.


  3. What a RULE BREAKER 😉
    Thanks Ruth! I have to say that it’s an honour to be thought of so highly and to be mentioned alongside such other wonderful bloggers who always inspire me to keep watching / researching / writing.


  4. Wow!!! This is a really interesting unique post. Love your twist. Thanks for the compliment. Am glad you like my personal post on France. Love the Quotes (so you finally took part in it as well)
    Kill many a birds with one stone.
    Well Done Ruth!!!


  5. I never know what to do with these awards, they don’t seem to “fit” the theme of my blog. Thanks for a creative take on them! Don’t know that I’ll steal it, but maybe I’ll come up with an inspiration of my own…


Start Singin', Mac!
