Live From the Blue Pillow ...

Before I get to my regular post, I have sad news to report ...one of our Cat Blogosphere friends lost everything in a deadly fire last night. Fortunately, Sebastian and his family made it out safely, but other pets in their apartment building did not. There's a Chip In to help them get back on their feet. Please donate if you can ... 


As I think I have mentioned, my papa is a film guy. He kind of lives for film (and me, of course). He does the marketing and publicity for Music Box Films, a film distribution company that buys the rights to foreign films and then distributes them to theaters in the United States ...blah, blah, blah, a mouthful, I know.


Well, guess what - one of their films Monsieur Lazhar was nominated for an academy award for Best Foreign Language Film! 


Will I be attending the awards ceremony and all the cool parties ...well, no, but I am still hoping to make the best dressed list. 


Move over George Clooney - there's a new dog in town!
 
So, if you can stay awake watch the ceremony on Sunday, please root for Monsieur Lahzar and of course, go see it if it comes to a theater near you!

How exciting! I LOVE the Academy Awards and will be watching to the very end, Sunday night. I am rooting for Monsieur Lahzar!

Julia Williams said...

Mr. Pip, If you DON'T make the best dressed list, then someone needs to have their eyes examined!!! BOL.

That is so terrible about the house fire. It's one thing to lose possessions but such a tragedy to lose beloved animals. It happened to a friend of mine and he was devastated.

Anny said...

PIP.... Congratulations to your DAD!!
Now you certainly do look dapper and SHOULD make the BESTEST DRESSED List.. Hey, who is this George Clooney? Is he related to Geo. the Lad??? Does G.C. have a Blog? What kinda Dawg IS he?
I am SURE he is no where NEAR as Dashing and stuffs as YOU are.

Wilma said...

Hi Pip, so sad about your feline friend. So terrible these fires. On a happier note, keep an eye out for a post from me this weekend. You may find something special for you!!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

White Dog and human paws crossed for dad's film! This is very exciting...is it available for rental or is it still in theaters?

What a horrible experience for your friend and family to face. Of course we will go and help as well as send strength and positive energies.

Congrats to your Dad, Pip - that is just wonderful to even be nominated - we hope his film wins.

Now that fire must have been the same one here last night in the next town over from us. There is also a Siberian Husky Razor missing. His family is hoping he got out, but it is not looking good. So very sad. The story is here:

The wind was so fierce the fire just got out of control very quickly.

Our hearts go out to Sebastian's family - such a terrible loss.

The Island Cats said...

Yay for your dad, Pip! We'll be watching on Sunday!!

houndstooth said...

How totally cool! I bet that movie is awesome. Mom says she has to resort to renting cool foreign films now because the local place that used to play them closed down. I am sure that you will be the best dressed pup at the Awards! Even that dog everybody is talking about from that big movie won't be as cool as you.

Bunny

P.S. We only got a light dusting of snow, and it was all melted away by the time Mom got out of school this afternoon!

Prancer Pie said...

You look so suave and debonair, Pip!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi Pippy

I am very happy for your dad- its like he famous now right? And if he is- well you are too!
I bet the movie is awsome!
I love your new outfit. You are just too darn cute Pippy, and you know what- you make me smile! Always!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

That's exciting about the film. We were saddened by news of the fire yesterday.

Cameron is wondering if he can catch a flight and sneak into the Academy Awards since he has nowhere around here to wear his tux.

Hilary said...

How exciting... I will be rooting!

And as for George.. Yes, he is one handsome man, but not nearly as handsome as you!

sprinkles said...

George Clooney's got nothin' on you, Pip!

I won't be home on Sunday night to watch the Oscars but I'll keep my fingers crossed.

So sad about your friend and the fire.

We will also hope that Monsieur Lahzar will be shown here in Manila cinemas.

Pip, that is so cool! I used to be a producer in film & tv...

Bocci said...

We didn't realize that your Pop was involved in the film industry (as they say). Sorry we're late visiting-we of course, watched the awards from start to finish, and even DVR'd them! Unfortunately, i must have zoned out at the foreign film award-was it the Iranian film that won?

Anyway, you surely won the best-dressed award, Pip!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Oh Pip. So sorry to hear of the awful fire. Sad that some pets perished. We are happy that your friends made it out safe with their family though. You look very dashing in your tux. Congrats for your daddy's film connection making it to the Oscars. Very cool!!
