9 Academy Awards nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director




Last month we talked about  aliens and E.T.s. First, we answered the 7 questions of a very unusual poll and discovered that some of us may have been abducted by aliens even if they can't remember anything.

Then, we surfed the net to find more information about the 1947-Roswell incident. Yoann and Floriane  believe a UFO really crashed in Roswell.

Finally, we learnt a lot about the SETI institute which has spent millions of dollars looking for intelligent life in the universe in the last 4 decades.

We haven't watched the movie directed by Steven Spielberg yet but we might towards the end of the school year.
It is the story of a lonely 10-year-old boy, Elliott, and an alien who was accidentally left behind by his people and is trying to go back home to outer space.


Here is the trailer :


"He is afraid. He is totally alone. He is 3 million light years from home."

"ET phone home."

When was the film released ? How many Oscars did it win ?

Last October we worked on William WALLACE's life and watched Braveheart in class (thanks to Yoann, 10B,  who lent me his DVD for a week).


William Wallace was Scottish. He was born more than 7 centuries ago, in 1272 in Elderslie, Scotland. Wallace's father who died in 1291 when William was 19 years old, was killed by English soldiers.



Edward I, King of England, took control of Scotland in 1296. Wallace started resistance against the English in 1297. Wallace and his followers won the battle of Stirling in September 1297 and they invaded England during the winter.

Edward I returned to Scotland with a huge army and defeated Wallace at Falkirk in July 1298.


Wallace was then in hiding for 7 years until he was captured on August 3rd, 1305. Wallace's trial took place in London on August 23rd, 1305 and Wallace was executed on August 24th, 1305.


The film won 5 Academy awards in 1995, including Best Director and Best Picture.


Here is the Braveheart trailer. Enjoy...





The film was seen by millions of people around the world.

Do you know how much the film cost  and how much money  it made ?
