The 89th annual Academy Awards is around the corner, taking place next Sunday, 26th February at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood and Highland Center in Los Angeles….
“Every year there’s that one movie that wins all the acclaim, all the awards, all the notices, and seems to suck the air out of the room for everyone else. This year, La La Land is that movie, pulling off a clean sweep of top honors at the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards, the Critics Choice Awards, and the BAFTAs. Next stop: the Oscars, where it’s nominated for a record 14 nominations (tying the record set by All About Eve and Titanic) and is the odds-on favorite for Best Picture, among a whole host of other awards. If and when it wins, it will be the culmination of one big fat La La Land lovefest.
The Damien Chazelle–directed, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone–starring homage to classic Hollywood movie-musicals has been hailed as returning the bygone genre to its golden-era glory—“at a time when musicals seldom grace the big screen, La La Land is practically a miracle,” one review gushed—and enchanting audiences in that pure, old-fashioned kinda way. “During one musical number, when fireworks start going off in the sky,” swooned the Miami Herald, “you can feel them going off in your head, too.”
But does the movie really deserve all of this hype?”
- SHOULD “LA, LA, LAND” WIN THE BEST PICTURE OSCAR AWARD?
- DOES THE MOVIE REALLY DESERVE ALL OF THIS HYPE?

If you’re a complete beginner to “The Archers”, this instant introduction is for you.
First of all, what exactly is The Archers? Well, it’s a radio soap opera set in the fictional English village of Ambridge. It aims to provide essential drama from the heart of the country.
So what does that mean you’ll be hearing? Ambridge is a twenty-first century village, with all the pressures of modern rural life. You’ll become involved in the characters’ personal and business struggles, their love affairs and all sorts of village activities from saving the local shop to the annual fete. There are plenty of lighter moments too.
The Archers has been specially recognised at the BBC Audio Drama Awards for the impact of its ground-breaking Helen and Rob storyline.
The programme received the award for Outstanding Contribution to Radio Drama. The BBC said the continuing drama, which is now in its 67th year, received the prize for “raising significant social awareness of the problem of domestic abuse and coercive control whilst telling a compelling dramatic story over three years”.

With the rise of social media, more and more teachers engage their students online with projects and assignments. Increasingly, I have seen fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter where students are posting on behalf of a literary character or historical figure.
Thanks to ClassTools, you can engage your students in the creation of fake Facebook profiles & BIOGRAPHIES without actually using the social media.
ClassTools has developed a program called Fakebook that allows users to easily and quickly create fake Facebook profiles & biographies. It is simple, free, and easy-to-use! Simply plug in information, pictures, friends, and biography data, and then publish with the click of a button. You can also embed the profile into any webpage and download it for offline sharing.
For more information take a look at these great examples, and check out the screenshot below of an example Fakebook profile for Brigham Young:
How might we use this in the classroom, you ask? Have students create “Fakebook” profiles and biographies of someone they know who is still alive . (TASK on page 115/ 125-150 WORDS))
Happy faking, y’all!
