Summer has been over for a long time, which also means that I'm very late responding to Chris' awesome gesture of passing over the Sunshine Award to me. Anyhow, I hope it'll bring a little sunshine back here.
1. Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog.
2. Link to the person who nominated you.

4. Nominate 10 bloggers.
5. Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated.
1. Favorite actor/actress (who's not a household name yet)?
I feel like Abbie Cornish doesn't get the recognition/ the roles she deserves yet. She was even good in Sucker Punch, which I don't think any actress would've been able to pull off. I've also been a fan of Kat Dennings ever since I first saw her in Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. It seems like 2 Broke Girls is going well but I've never dared watching it since the premise sounds sort of stupid. Lizzy Caplan should've been a star after Mean Girls - but it also looks like she's on her way now. It's weird that I can't think of any men... it would be great to see Michael Pitt in more movies though and I'm a big fan of Eddie Redmayne for some reason.
2. Favorite animal?
I love cats but we've had to so far and it never went well. Dogs are lovely too though. And of course - thank you, J. K. Rowling - I would love to have an owl for a pet.
3. Favourite non-alcoholic drink?
This may sounds weird, but I really enjoy drinking water. Otherwise, I like Vanilla Coke, Ginger Ale, Club Mate and all kinds of juice.
4. Favorite music?
I listen to all kinds of music, really. Mainly I like a few songs from each artist. Right now I listen to Blink-182 a lot, as well as Cocteau Twins' Pearly Dewdrop's Drop.
5. Favorite tv-show?
My all time favorite is a German show called Türkisch für Anfänger (Turkish for Beginners). It's so perfect it hurts and I've seen it about 394 times. Haven't been able to convince any other people in the blogosphere to watch it though. Another undying love of mine is of course the new Doctor Who. And Sherlock is great.
6. Favorite sport?
Any kind of dance, but most of all ballet, which is what I do myself. I like how much effort it takes to make everything look effortless, and how the goal is aesthetic perfection - not running after some ball.
7. Movie most people love that I dislike?
Trois Couleurs: Bleu. Watched it twice for French class and still hate it. It's just so f***ing depressing.
8. Favorite short film?
L'homme qui plantait des arbres and La Jetée. Jess Archer vs. the Ex is a great recent one. And anything Pixar ever made.
9. My passion?
10. Favorite soundtrack from 2013?
This Is the End.
