One of my all-time favourite films. Taylor is quite simply pure perfection. 🌟 (
“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” premiered on this day in 1966. The movie, which garnered thirteen #Oscar nominations, stars real-life spouses #ElizabethTaylor and #RichardBurton as a married couple who engage in an epic battle of wills over the course of one night.
For her role as the sharp-tongued, unrelenting Martha, Elizabeth earned her second Best Actress Oscar, and her unforgettable performance helped the movie make Oscar history: it’s one of only two movies to be nominated in every eligible category, and it was the first movie to see nominations for all four of its credited cast members.
Since I have to stay close to home this weekend, you’re gonna see a lot of me and this guy!! His eye honestly looks AWFUL tonight, but here’s to hoping this crazy eyedrop schedule works!! #oscar#pugs#pugsofinstagram
#lawrenceofarabia David Lean’s epic without a doubt merits the word ‘masterpiece’. It features stellar performances all round, staggering cinematography, some of the best cuts in cinema history and some of the most beautiful scenes ever put to film. But perhaps the most fascinating thing about the film is the enigmatic and complex character of Lawrence. He is a character filled with noir; self-destruction and self-loathing. He’s constantly testing and pushing himself but what is he trying to prove? What is he fighting himself about? This needs to be seen on the biggest screen possible.
No more cookies for you big boy! I am joining Oscar in a ‘restore’ program. His immune system is shot so the vet wants to reboot his gut health. We are getting him ready for a double knee surgery and he’s not healthy enough to have the operation yet. So we’re doin’ it! Not gonna be easy... the Big O loves his cookies 🙄 and so do I 😉
