FINAL Week… 31 Days of Oscar Blogathon

We have finally arrived to the 5th and last week of the 31 DAYS OF OSCAR Blogathon. It’s been a wondrous journey of incredibly talented bloggers writing on what they’re most passionate, crowning achievements in cinema. I’m in awe of the caliber of excellence in writing each week throughout this process. It’s been a true honor and joy to co-host this blogging event, along with my fellow co-hosts Aurora of Once Upon A Screen and Paula of Paula’s Cinema Club. On behalf of my co-hosts and myself, a HUGE Thank You to all you participating bloggers and to all the readers, too! We couldn’t have done it without you and we hope it’s been as enjoyable for you as it has been for us. And now, your final week of bloggers…
