I’ve never been in a movie. However, I live in a state that has a big film industry, so I have a lot of friends and acquaintances that have popped up here and there as an extra in crowd scenes. My town has even starred in a few shows because we had the right historical look.
Feb 9 is Oscar Night, when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recognizes outstanding contributions to film. It’s fun to scan the crowd and pick out your favorite actors and actresses, see if you picked the right winners, and admire (or ridicule) the fashion.
Most actors and actresses work very hard to make a name for themselves. It’s one of the toughest businesses in which to compete, but it also stands to offer some of the biggest rewards if you get there.
If you know an actor—and we’re including stage plays in this—give them a lot of support. You might be thanked in front of the televised world. One way to encourage them can be with one of our fun acting mugs!
1. Symptom or Result?
Every day they are a different person. They obsessively repeat the same words over and over. They react emotionally to things that aren’t really happening. However (see #2 below)…
2. That Explains It
So if you are schizophrenic, just carry a script around with you.
3. Almost There
They’ll want coffee to help keep them focused as they try to memorize their parts.
4. I’m Not Home Right Now
We’ve all heard stories about actors that work so hard on their roles, they don’t even break character off-set.
5. The Payoff
Hopefully the audience will be entertained and the performers recognized. Break a leg!
This is just a sampling of the great acting mugs we stock. Have a whole cast to buy for? Remember that U.S. orders of two or more mugs get free shipping! That’s our award to you!
