|The eternal Meryl Streep won this year's Best Actress Oscar for her role as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady|
As also predicted The Artist, that funny French silent film in black and white, won 5 of the top Oscars. Hugo, by Martin Scorsese, won another 5. One film which didn’t win an Oscar but had many nominations was War Horse by Steven Spielberg. I went to see it with Eladio on Friday and loved every minute of it, but then I am a sucker for animals and war films. You could call it “cheesy” but then I love sentimental cheesy films. It was a wonderful creation, the story of a beautiful horse called Joey, set in Devon in England and its adventures in the cruel World War I. It now belongs to my top ten films, the type you can watch over and over again. So, my Oscar this year goes to Joey and his wonderful young owner Albert, played by the young English actor, Jeremy Irvine, in this epic film by Steven Spielberg.
