What nominee is most deserving of an Oscar?

lt sueMatthew  McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club. I never appreciated his work before but I found him very credible and just enjoyed the role.

Sandra Bullock is deserving of an Oscar for Gravity. She's a fantastic actress, she's been in the game for a while, and she works really hard.

lt meganKristin Scott Thomas as The Invisible Woman because she was just frickin amazing the way that she decided to become invisible, and then realized that she could not live a live of invisibility. She figured it out. It was kind of a painful way, but she learned that she was never going to be number one in Charles Dickens’ life.

lt harleighLeonardo DiCaprio, Wolf of Wall Street. Extreme Bacchanalia of drugs, alcohol, cheating people out. People loved the movie, and perhaps even loving the bad wolf of Wall Street himself. Always an enjoyment, always a treat to see Dicapio, Wolf of Wall Street  was one of the best films I've seen all year. Good luck, Leonardo!

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

The magical time of Mercury’s retrograde cycle is here once again, until Feb. 11, and then some. The Mercury retro cycle actually lasts eight weeks when we consider its retrograde shadow, giving us six months a year for review. We know the rules of Mercury retro: Be careful with everything; cars, driving, money, resources, friends, friendships, groups, interactions, thinking, talking, communications. Avoid big purchases, important meetings and important repairs. Mercury retrograde times are for review, reassessment and rest. Our minds are overloaded from the last Mercury retro. Our minds need to assess what we’ve done since October—eliminating what is not needed, keeping what’s important, preparing for new information in the next three months (till mid-May). Mercury in Aquarius retrograde … we reinvent ourselves, seek the unusual, we don’t hide, we’re just careful. We live in two worlds; outer appearances and inner reckonings, with both sides of our brain activated. Yet, like the light of the Gemini twins, one light waxes (inner world), the other (outer realities) wanes. Like Virgo, we see what’s been overlooked—assessing, ordering and organizing information. It’s an entirely inner process. When speaking we may utter only half of the sentence. We’re in the underworld, closer to Spirit, eyes unseeing, senses alerted, re-doing things over and over till we sometimes collapse. Because we’re in other realms, we’re wobbly, make mistakes, and don’t really know what we want. It’s not a time for decisions. Not yet. It’s a time of review. And completing things. Mercury retro: integration, slowing down, resolution, rapprochement.
