GrabBag: Valentine’s Edition – Princesses and Romantic Video Games

Heart with Question Mark copy

Happy Valentine’s Friday! In lieu of a card or teddy bear, I present you with this GrabBag of screen-related bon-bons…

  • Up first, The Onion’s “Starfix” gives us a behind-the-scenes look at Colin Farrell’s “lack of preparation” for this weekend’s big romantic release, Winter’s Tale
  • Oscar’s telecast producers urged winners to give speeches “from your heart, not from a list.” I can get behind that. Who cares about a list of agents and producers? The speeches we remember are those that take the opportunity to really say something.
  • Speaking of Disney, the cast of Frozen reunited for a live Cabaret night. I wish we got more than 18 seconds of footage from it.
  • And finally, Hoth should never have been chosen to host the Winter Olympics

OK that’s enough candy for today. Time to go buy some real sweets, whether you have a sweetie to share them with or get the whole box to yourself!

Jessica Chastain poses as Merida from Pixar’s Brave. This is part of an ongoing series by Disney Parks. You can read all about it and see some behind the scenes shots here. Something about the digital editing seems off, but the concept is glorious.

In other news, The Golden Globe Awards are this Sunday (7pm Central on NBC). In case you need a refresher, you can see the nominees here. Or you can download a printable ballot here.

Sometime the Globes can be even more fun than the Oscars. They may mean less (not that the Oscars mean all that much to begin with), but the celebs in the audience sit at round tables and get to drink. It leads to a looser, more fresh and relaxed night overall. And last time they were on Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were the perfect hosts, just as good if not better than any Oscar host has ever been.
