Thank you to Little Bits of Classics for kindly nominating me for a Liebster blog award—I’m tickled pink! I will start off by giving my responses to the provided questions…
1. How much time do you spend a week with writing blog posts?
It varies a lot from time to time. During the semester, I’ll usually have time to write at least one post per month (two, if I’m lucky) on top of my assignments. I’m also very picky when it comes to my writing, and will edit and re-edit a post before I feel it’s sufficient enough for publishing, and that alone takes up a great deal of my time.
2. Do you prefer watching movies in company or alone?
Both! I like watching movies by myself, but I also enjoy watching them with family or friends. I usually try to make plans to attend screenings of my favorite classic films whenever I hear about them, and it’s always captivating to hear the reactions of fellow audience members.
3. What do you think is the worst performance of your favourite actor?
I have a few favorites, but since I haven’t seen a great range of a certain actor’s filmography as much as I have Buster Keaton’s, let’s go with him. What! No Beer (1933) can be pretty hard for me to watch, especially considering what’s been going on in his life at that time.
4. Are there any actors whose appearance irritates you?
5. Is there anything you’d like to change about your blog in the near future?
In terms of content, I think I’m still trying to find my niche. It feels sort of all over the place, but that doesn’t entirely bother me. As for appearance, that’s always changing no matter what.
6. Do you usually go to the cinema?
Yes! As aforementioned, I love catching screenings of my favorite classic films, and I try to attend those as often as I can. I’m utterly grateful to live in a city that offers so much in terms of movie screenings.
7. What is your favourite silent movie?
Not counting any Buster Keaton or Harold Lloyd (since I watch their films ALL the time), Why Be Good? (1929) is one of many favorites.
8. Who is your favourite actor who was born outside America?
I’ll have to go with Audrey Hepburn on this one.
9. Do you usually watch foreign language movies?
Growing up under the care of deaf parents, foreign-language films meant subtitles, so they’ve been around in my movie-watching life for a while. Within the past few years, though, I’ve been especially gearing towards French cinema (and some Polish) in order to train my ear in the language.
10. What was your favourite movie as a child?
Either Lady and the Tramp (1955), The Adventures of Milo & Otis (1986), or The Iron Giant (1999). I also remember watching The Brave Little Toaster (1987) pretty often, which probably explains a lot.
11. How many Liebster Awards have you had before?
This is my first Liebster award for this blog! I received one on another blog ages ago.
Despite having this blog for a year now, I still feel relatively new to the classic film blogging community, and I don’t know too many fellow bloggers. So, if you have already been nominated for this award (or regardless), feel free to pass this one up.
Nevertheless, I would like to nominate:
Here are my eleven questions to you:
- Are there any movie locations you would like to visit?
- Do you share a birthday with a famous someone?
- Which films are on the top of your to-watch list?
- If you were to make a biopic, who would it be about?
- What are your other hobbies and interests?
- Is there a film that appeals to your aesthetics?
- If you could visit a specific era, which one would it be?
- How did your interest in classic cinema evolve?
- Which film would you like to see on the big screen?
- Is there a movie you wish you could have taken part in?
- Are there any actors or directors you would like to learn more about?
