The Unsung Hero Blogathon Wrap-Up


The only proper way to start this wrap-up would be with a giant thank you. Thank you to everyone who participated, showed interest or just stopped by to read the blogathon posts or wish me luck. I got a great sense of community from hosting this blogathon and now  I’m proud to say that I can add ‘blogathon hoster’ to my ever-growing blogging resume.

I went into this with realistic (bordering on pessimistic) expectations. I honestly didn’t think any more than two bloggers would participate and I’m truly pleased with the response I got. There was also a great diversity and high-quality to the posts from participating bloggers. Well, without any further adieu, let’s get to looking back on the posts.

lifesdailylessonblog gives an in-depth description of John Garfield‘s most Oscar-worthy films and shows that he was more than just a fantastic actor but also a fantastic human being.

The Midnite Drive-In writes about the injustice of Robert Redford being robbed of an Oscar in The Sting

Reelweegiemidget Reviews takes up the case of not one but THREE actors who deserved Oscar consideration in the film Fargo

Charlene’s (Mostly) Classic Film Reviews celebrates the acting talent that was Myrna Loy and laments The Academy for her lack of Oscar recognition

Cinematic Corner writes a passionate love letter to Ed Harris and, in particular, his fine work in Sweet Dreams

Dell on Movies throws down the gauntlet and wonders how much longer The Academy can deny Laurence Fishburne his just rewards

Lastly, I write about the spotlight-stealing brilliance that Michael Clarke Duncan shows off in The Green Mile. 

The bloggers listed above did some great work in their posts, respectively and I also suggest you poke around their sites, there’s quality all around.

First solo blogathon in the books and boy was it a blast. I’ve learnt a lot about actors I thought I knew well and even more about actors that I’ve never even heard of. One thing’s for sure, the list of movies I need to watch and blogs I need to visit just got longer.

  1. I’m a little late with this, but thanks for hosting. I had a blast putting my post together. I have also enjoyed the other entries. Trying to make comments on them all. It’s a little more difficult than it used to be. Not sure what WordPress did, but I can’t comment on any of their blogs unless I log in through Twitter. Too much hassle to keep switching my phone log in back and forth between that and Google, so I only get to comment from my desktop which can be quite a busy machine at my house.
