Your 2017 Oscars Nominees

I don’t know about you, but I am super excited that it’s Oscars time again! I’m so happy to be back in LA for it, and thrilled to have been a part of CTV’s ETalk Oscars week! There are so many Canadian actors and talent nominated this year and they truly have some amazing content to share.

Their coverage of the red carpet tonight will be epic. Ben Mulroney is the most gracious, knowledgable person in the business and may I add, he’ll be looking quite sharp out there! I am already missing my new Canadian family but looking forward to my next CTV adventure. 

I figured I’d compile a list of our nominees so in case you haven’t seen them already or you just want to use it to follow along tonight, we have it! Feel free to let me know your thoughts and predictions. Also, you can follow me on twitter @teeco71 and also follow @etalkCTV for all the red carpet fun!

Why I should be the ETawardsfan

Ever since I can remember, even before I could walk and talk, I have been a fan of Hollywood and entertainment. It truly started with TV, reruns of shows like I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched. I was in awe of the special effects and the way the actors brought these magical characters to life. The fact that they played their parts and convinced you they were real, even though you knew it was all just “smoke and mirrors” (literally). I was also fascinated by the back story of shows like I Love Lucy. Lucille Ball was not only a gem of an actress, a true beauty, but also a powerful force in Hollywood at a time where not many women were.

I was lucky, my parents had great taste in TV and music, as well as movies. I was introduced to films like Star Wars and Grease, The Godfather along with actors such as James Cagney and Jimmy Stewart from a very young age. The music of Fleetwood Mac and the Beatles regularly played throughout the house. When I was older, I was permitted to stay up to watch award shows as long as they ended on time (and I actually got to see them when they went over by pleading or making a deal).

At dinner time we watched reruns of All in the Family and The Jeffersons along with Entertainment Tonight. I knew who Mary Hart was and would even pretend to be her cohost. When Oprah Winfrey premiered her talk show, I was in high school and would rush home to do my homework while watching (I got straight A’s all throughout school, by the way).

Long before Twitter and Facebook I was the one who sparked conversations about the TV shows I had watched the night before, the new albums, and the new films that were coming out. In school it was our schoolyard and after school conversation, when I started working it became my water cooler talk.

When I was introduced to Social Media by seeing Ashton Kutcher on Oprah, I was hooked immediately. It became my GLOBAL water cooler and has been ever since. I have made so many amazing connections with my favorite actors, directors, producers, writers, musicians, and more!

I have had the privilege of attending award show events, working red carpets, attending film premieres and live tweeting them all! I have even live tweeted with the cast of shows like Scorpion on their premiere night from viewing parties where I got to meet them all.

Social TV and being a Social TV correspondent is not just an interest of mine, nor is it a job for me. It is who I am, what I feel most comfortable doing. Sharing my experiences and ideas with like-minded people and fans is something that makes me come alive and feel like I am part of something so much bigger than myself. I have a great respect for the talented individuals who bring us our entertainment and I think that shines through with all I do.

You can find me on Twitter as @teeco71 as well as Instagram, Vine, Facebook, etc!
