Oscar night coming up!

Ikke at jeg planlegger å snu døgnet i natt, men det må jo markeres. Så dagens sitater er fra skuespillere nominert til beste mannlige og beste kvinnelige hovedrolle. Sitatene er stortsett hentet fra BrainyQuote.com, med mer eller mindre relasjon til filmene de er nominert for sin deltakelse i. Jeg likte spesielt godt sitatet jeg valgte fra Meryl Streep. Det er noe jeg tror man ikke alltid tenker på, men som de fleste antagelig ønsker.

I want to feel my life when I'm in it.

-Meryl Streep, nominert for rollen som Margareth Thatcher i "The Iron Lady"

I was born with a fierce need for independence.

-Michelle Williams, nominert for rollen som Marilyn Monroe i "My week with Marilyn"

Can I just tell you, I think it's the most beautiful thing about young people today, it gives me so much hope for the future, that they don't really recognize race the way my generation does.

-Viola Davis, nominert for rollen som Aibileen i "The Help"

The best thing I have is the knife from Fatal Attraction. I hung it in my kitchen. It's my way of saying, Don't mess with me.

-Glenn Close, nominert for rollen som Albert Nobbs i "Albert Nobbs"

There were certainly things I was scared to do, but I never thought I wasn't up for the challenge.

-Rooney Mara, nominert for rollen som Lisbeth Salander i "The Girl with the Dragoon Tattoo"

I am really bad at long-term commitments. I try to be as clear as I can be. I don’t hide or play stupid games. I try to let everyone know that eventually I will probably be leaving.

-Demián Bichir, nominert for rollen som Carlos Galindo i "A Better Life" (sitatet er hentet herfra)

But I'm kind of comfortable with getting older because it's better than the other option, which is being dead. So I'll take getting older.

-George Clooney, nominert for rollen som Matt King i "The Descendants"

I've never concerned myself with the labels people want to put on you. What matters to me is my own estimation.

-Jean Dujardin, nominert for rollen som George Valentin i "The Artist"

People have an idea that one is in control of a career, a lot more than you really are. You can engineer things to an extent. But you are at the mercy of what comes in across the desk.

-Gary Oldman, nominert for rollen som George Smiley i "Muldvarpen" (eller "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" som den heter på engelsk)

I believe you make your day. You make your life. So much of it is all perception, and this is the form that I built for myself. I have to accept it and work within those compounds, and it's up to me.

-Brad Pitt, nominert for rollen som Billy Beane i "Moneyball"

Pew! Det tok litt mer tid enn jeg hadde trodd. Om du vil lese om filmene foreslår jeg imbd.com, om du er interessert i Oscar 2012 kan du jo sjekke ut P3 og filmpolitiets side her.
