Best of Emmys dresses 2018

Emmy Award goes to people in the American television industry. The first Emmy statuette (a woman with wings holding an atom) was given in 1949 to Shirley Dinsdale. The person who received the most Emmys is Julia Louis Dreyfus with 11 wins and 24 nominations.
On 17th September the 70th Emmys took place in the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. It was hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost and the whole event was flooded with celebrities. Here you can find this year’s list of wins and nominees.

Let’s take a look at what people wore to the red carpet.

Vanessa Hudgens certainly found her version of the little black dress that was designed by SemSem. The huge bow makes it look very chic and dramatic.

Favourites of November 2017

November passed so quickly, it’s unbelievable… I went through a lot of feelings this month. From enjoying the last warm autumn days to decorating my apartment with several reindeers singing ‘Siiilent niiight’… 

Book experience of the month:
I’ve been always curious about the woman who not only used a pseudonym to hide her female identity, but was the partner of Frédéric Chopin for several years and corresponded with Gustave Flaubert. My first George Sand novel was La Petite Fadette, the romantic novel that takes place in the 19th century countryside. It was lovely to read, I hope I can procure more of her novels.
My second choice was Lauren Graham’s My Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between), the book she wrote about the 7 seasons of Gilmore Girls series between 2000-2007, and then about the cast’s reunion for a 4 episode windup last year. It’s a must-read for all true fans. 

Audiobook experience of the month:
I moved on to J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Jim Dale is still hilarious! It always made me smile how he imitated Lockhart’s voice: ‘Harry, Harry, Harryyy…’.

Movie experience of the month:
Circle
movie, starring Emma Watson and Tom Hanks makes us think about the advantages and disadvantages of modern social media.
The Space between us is a nice romantic story, not only for space fans!
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead men tell no tales honestly was a little forced for me. Jack Sparrow’s character was a big hit when the first movie came out, but not anymore. Though it was nice to see (SPOILER ALERT!) Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley reunited.

Cinema experience of the month:
November has been the month of superheroes! The new Thor movie was funnier than the first two and Mark Ruffalo is always a great coworker. Cate Blanchett’s Hela was a pretty badass enemy. Fun fact: this was the first time Marvel movie that had a female wicked leading character.
The long awaited Justice League had two precious actors, Ezra Miller as the Flash and Gal Gadot as Wonderwoman. I still can’t get over the fact that Ben Affleck became Batman… whoever thought about that at DC Comics, he is not their friend!
And I also saw A Bad Moms Christmas with my friends during my trip to Budapest. Although it’s full of crazy and funny moments, it still makes you think about what is important in Christmas: having the perfect tree and perfect decoration or spending quality time with your loved ones?

Series experience of the month:
The second season of Stranger Things is finally out and it was just as good as the first one! I love how they pay attention to every detail to create this 80’s world. Can’t wait for season 3!

Theatre experience of the month:
I went to see The Barber of Seville in the National Theatre in Szeged. I actually never heard an opera in Hungarian before. After talking to the singer playing Count Almaviva (I know, such a VIP…), he told us it was harder because Hungarian words often end with syllables like ‘t’ or ‘k’ while in Italian you can let go of the ‘o’-s and ‘a’-s. Besides it was a lot of fun and a great way to attract younger people to watch an opera.

Travelling experience of the month:
I went to Debrecen for a weekend to visit my Polish friend who came here to study with Erasmus. I have actually never been to Debrecen before so it was a great opportunity.
I traveled to the Hungarian capital, Budapest to visit my childhood friends. We went to see the Christmas fair (blog post coming soon about it, no worries).

Photography experience of the month:
Definitely my Budapest night photos and the ones I took of the Japanese collection of the Déri Museum in Debrecen.

Music experience of the month:
Janis Joplin’s Summertime when the living is easy. I really don’t know why.

Food experience of the month:
Although the most commonly known Hungarian dish by foreigners is goulash, I only had it in school canteens. And who’s fault is that, mummy? OK, just kidding, I know it’s mine.  But it’s never too late. Goulash is a traditional soup made from beef and a lot of vegetables seasoned with paprika. If someone wants to sell it to you elsewhere, don’t believe them, we have the original!

My favourite sequels and series

‘Although I couldn’t find a great quote, I wish to continue this wonderful tradition in my last favourites concerned post.’ /Lady Fraise, the Great/

Why do we watch series? Because we are trapped in the web of the Netflix Spider? Or we find them more entertaining then our own lives? Or is it just a good form of entertainment? I’m not writing this to decide, I just want to make a list of all my favourites:

Friends /Classic sitcom, iconic characters with iconic quotes. I can never get bored of it, even after watching it the tenth time./

Big bang theory /Science version of Friends. I have a place for both of them in my heart./

House /Best hospital series ever. Even though when everything is lupus./

Versailles /My newest favourite about Loius XIV. Amazing costumes, amazing actors./

Game of Thrones /Never get attached to any of the characters, or you will have your heart broken./

Gotham /How the little Bruce Wayne became Batman in the dark city of Gotham./

Vikings /Violence and blood everywhere but the characters will make you care./

Stranger things /This year’s other great discovery! A story set in the 1980s with awesome child actors./

White collar /Art crime is the best kind of crime. Mainly if Matt Bomer is in it! :D/

Gilmore girls /My favourite family and romantic series./

The Tudors /The story of Henry VIII’s wives./

The Borgias /Jeremy Irons plays the Borgia Pope and Francois Arnaud plays his son, Cesare Borgia. The family, that is surrounded by myths./

On the spot /Documentary series made by a Hungarian couple, Eszter Cseke and S. Takács András that wone the Gold Plaque in Monte Carlo. They shot about tribes, warrior, dictator’s children and births around the world. It is great to get to know people’s stories from all around the world./
