I’m always watching the Oscars, but I didn’t know that there was a curse on Hollywood Vamps. Well hopefully this will be the movie that will score a Oscar for Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, and Vampires. I love Burton and Depp movies! So this is definitely going on my list of movies I’m dying to see!
Did you know that Vampires have never won an Oscar? Are you planning on seeing this movie?
