I love the Oscars, petty and political and only vaguely meritocratic though they are. Part of the reason I created this blog when I did was because I wanted to write a piece on my Oscar predictions. Just got that one in under the gun.
Also, I’ve plugged my predictions into ABC’s official Oscar predictions game, so if we’re Facebook friends, you can put in yours, turn on “Play With Friends,” and we’ll compare results in real time during the broadcast. Come on, it’ll be fun!
Okay, on to the predictions:
Baylor Johnson, website-haver.
Welcome to my new website. Those of you who know me know that I love to write and have had a blog off and on since the days of Xanga and LiveJournal, and this is the most recent, hopefully slightly less mortifying, version of that. Those of you who don’t, I’m a 28 year old communications manager originally from Texas, currently living in Miami. I’ve written an about page if you want to know a little more.
I plan to use this website to share the kinds of things that excite me.
What excites me? Well, I’m a storytelling geek. That means I get excited about the whys and hows of good storytelling in the many forms it takes in the 21st century, whether that be a movie, a novel, a podcast, a political campaign, or a video game.
I’m also a writer, and although I love that my career gives me an opportunity to channel that into work that I am extremely proud of, I’m starting to get back into writing for pleasure.
So, expect an eclectic mix of content here: movie reviews, scene analyses, various Top 10 lists, and even the odd bit of fiction. The through line for most of it, though, is going to be me exploring how good stories are told well.
Thanks for visiting!
