Glitz and Glamour

Well it was that time of the year again where we ooohhhd and aaaahhd over the Oscars and as I sat there excitedly watching, I realised that I am hopelessly attracted to the glitz and glamour of award shows and have been for the longest time.

One of my most favourite nights on TV is our very own Logie Awards Night, smaller on scale compared to the Oscars, but it's ours, it's Aussie and it's just as exciting.

What is it about an Awards night that makes me excited, well it's everything really.  I love the gowns, the make up, the red carpet walk and the wonderful actors so full of anticipation.  I love finding out each nominee and then pick my winner, waiting to see if I'm right.  I love to hear the acceptance speeches and hopelessly cry along if the actors also start to cry (hopeless I know!!!).

I love a good story, whether it be by book where my mind can paint the picture itself or in the case of a fantastic movie my mind takes it all in.  I love to notice the detail of scenery, costumes and make up artistry and I love the intrigue as a story twists and turns and unfolds. Murder, mystery, comedy, romance, I'm not fussy, I enjoy them all.

A good story, a good movie allows you to escape and be carried away for a few hours.  Stories and movies allow you to forget your worries, relax and take time out for you.

I'm a story lover, so to see this culminated in a wonderful, glitzy and glam awards night is like the butter to my popcorn and the choc to my top.
