The Lady Geeks talk about the “controversy” surrounding the casting choices around Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, white dudes being weird and also, so many white people in the Oscar’s. Plus, we’ll miss you, Alan Rickman. Fanfic Theatre: Harry Potter.
“All’s well that ends better.”
TheOneRing.net hosted the last Oscar party for fans of the Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit movies this past weekend at the American Legion in Hollywood. Traditionally, the fan parties took place during Oscar night so we can all gather and watch the award show together. This year, the party took place the night before the show on Saturday and I think it is because The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies didn’t get nominated for any categories this year. Boo-urns, Academy Awards!
Either way, it didn’t stop the fans from gathering to appreciate our fandom for one night together in fancy dresses and dwarf gear.
Compared to last year’s extravagant event, this year’s Oscar party hosted by TheOneRing.net was a much more casual and low key event. That didn’t stop us from putting on our wannabe-red-carpet outfits and braving the traffic in Los Angeles! Apparently, all the streets are closed when the celebrities are strutting their way down the red carpet. This year’s party was held at the Cat & Fiddle pub and restaurant, just a few blocks away from the ceremony.
Award season is here and we are giving away $25 movie gift card courtesy of Fandango! You know us Lady Geeks don’t take our movies lightly and we want to know who you are rooting for to win during the Academy Awards. See below how you can win at the same time!
The Lady Geeks talk about eating for paid webcam shows, Jon Hamm as Doctor Strange and introduces a new segment called ‘Weird Crushes.’ Then, we get into a lackluster discussion on the Oscar nominations of movies we haven’t seen because it has been a slow news day.
