Academy Awards: Hopkins Edition

Here's what the academy awards would look like if they were based on good ol' Johns Hopkins University.

Academy Awards: Hopkins Edition

The Oscars are finally upon us. Whether you are excited about nominees or using it as an excuse to binge watch all of the films up for "Best Picture," it's definitely an anticipated award show. Here's what the academy awards would look like if they were based on good ol' Johns Hopkins University.

Actor in a Leading Role

The man, the legend: Ronny D.

Those who don't attend might ask: "Who is Ronny D?" "Why are y'all so into your president?"

And to them we say, go HOP (or whatever we say at sporting events that no ones goes to).

Actress in a leading role

Gladys is one of the nicest humans you will ever meet. A person who says otherwise is not the kind of person you should be hanging out with. Her kindness in the FFC has made everyone's day a little brighter. The world needs more people like Gladys.

Actor in a supporting role

This award goes out to Carlton Calvin. "Who is he?", one might ask. Why, just the founder and current CEO of Razor USA, the distributor of our favorite mode of transportation.

We all hate, but secretly want one.

Honorable mention: Shane Chen, inventor of the Hoverboard.

Actress in a supporting role

This award goes collectively to the flamingoes that grace Gilman Quad every spring semester. I mean just look at its smug face.

Costume design

Vineyard Vines takes the cake when it comes to what Hopkins students are wearing. Be it the lax bros going to class, or the sratty girls wearing shirts two sizes too big, VV can be seen all around campus.

Honorable mentions go out to: Bean Boots, Uggs, and Crab decals filled in with the state flag.

Best Documentary feature

When it comes to capturing the exciting daily life of a Hopkins student, no other group has done it as successfully as JHU Snaps. We would all get excited if we ever saw this:

Best Production Design

This award goes out to the construction on North Charles. It took a little over two years but it finally opened this year. If this project was any indication, the path being built on the freshman quad will be done in just a few years' time!

Music (original song)

The obvious choice: Good Morning Baltimore

No freshman experience is complete without countless Insta pics quoting this famous song.

Best Picture

This award goes out to JHU because all jokes aside, it's pretty darn picturesque.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
