WAFFLES:  ♫♩ Don't stop ME-OWWWW! I'm havin' a good time! ♫♩

KATIE:  Waffles, what on EARTH are you doing? And more importantly, what on earth are you WEARING???

WAFFLES:  I'm havin' a good time, Boss! Tonight's the Oscar Meyer Awards and I'm rooting for Freddie! And bologna.

KATIE:  It's not the Oscar MEYER awards, Waffles. It's the Oscars. 

WAFFLES:  That's what I said, Boss. So where's the bologna?

KATIE:  There's no bologna.

WAFFLES:  Whaddaya mean, Boss? Oscar with no bologna is just– 

KATIE:  The Oscars.

Paws Crossed for Bohemian Rhapsody
Glogirly has been more than a little obsessed with the Freddie Mercury and Queen biopic ever since it landed in theaters last November. It's rare for a movie to sneak it's way into her heart and mind and stay there so permanently. She's been a long time fan of some of Queen's greatest hits but had no idea the portrayal of the band and their incredible frontman would stay with her like this. 

Every morning when Glogirly wakes up, she has a song playing in her head. She's woken up like this for as long as she can remember. Since she saw the movie, every morning she now hears Queen. The song that plays in her head more than any other is Somebody To Love. In case you're curious, she never gets tired of it.

She knew from the opening scene, where the camera pans past Freddie Mercury's cats eating from their sterling silver bowls, that she was in for something special. And that Freddie was something special too. Our good friend and fellow Bohemian Rhapsody fangirl, Ingrid King, wrote a FASCINATING article (here) about the movie cats and their trainer. 

Bohemain Rhapsody and Rami Malek, who so magnificently portrayed Freddie, have already scooped up an armful of awards. As we're writing this blog post, the Oscars are just a few hours away and they're up for five more awards. 

Oscars and Golden Globes usually don't mean much to us. We like to watch what we like to watch. But that doesn't mean we don't have a bunch of fingers and paws crossed tonight for Bohemian Rhapsody. 


  1. What a night! 4 Oscars for this amazing movie! And if there was an Oscar for animal actors, I bet the cats in the movie would have won. And Waffles, I bet Freddie would love you!

  2. Momma said she had no idea Freddie was such a cat person until she saw the movie!

  3. Mum was so happy when Rami won last night. She cheered out loud even. MOL. Loved all the kits in the moovie too.

  4. I guess we have more reason to see this movie now!

  5. I saw a commercial for a new Elton John movie coming out, and wondered why I haven't seen 'Bohemian Rhapsody' yet! And after Glogirly awarded us with one of her lovely cards too! I have a week off of work in mid-March; I'll make sure to see the movie then. Rock n'roll and cats...what's not to LOVE?!?

  6. Claire haven't seen the movie yet but it's on her list ! Purrs

  7. Although it didn't win Best Picture, my human is so glad that the Oscar humans did the right thing and awarded Best Actor to Rami Malek.

  8. Thank you for your kind words of sympathy for our Only.

  9. We were thrilled that Rami Malek got the Best Actor, though we weren't happy with the decision of Green Book for the Best Picture--it was probably the weakest of all of them that we had seen. Secretly, we were hoping for Black Panther. That had nothing to do with Ham,though.

  10. We nevfur watch the Oscars. Nev-fur! But this year we did cuz we too were cheering for Bohemian Rhapsody and Rami Malek. The huge bonus was Queen opening the show. The mewvee has stayed with us too since Novempurr. Can't wait to see it again. We have to agree with Waffles, though. If there'd been would have been a better evening.

  11. Waffles you are too funny. We were very happy that Rami won the best actor award. The opening of the show was great also with Queen playing and no it's not the oscar meyer awards. LOL!!! Too funny. Have a great one.
