GIVEAWAY: The LG Optimus LTE smartphone!

I have always loved watching awards shows. I love the Acadamy Awards, especially. I used to watch every single nominated film, which made watching the Acadamy Awards that much more fun. Since becoming a mom, I haven't had as much time to see every nominated film, but there are always a handful I'll make time to watch before the big night. And usually? I'm bang on with my predictions of which movie will take Best Picture, or who will win Best Actress and Best Actor.

I've always been in love with the world of entertainment, and interning at Entertainment Tonight was sort of like a dream come true for me. I left that internship early to accept a job offer in radio back home, a decision I have come to regret. Anyway, I digress... back to The Oscars! Seeing my favourite actors hit the red carpet in gorgeous gowns and perfect hair makes me excited. You know what's even more exciting than just watching The Oscars at home? Tweeting about The Oscars. Seriously, watching awards shows has become so much more fun since Twitter has come into our lives. Actually, watching anything on TV is so much more fun with Twitter!

It's constant chatter, and laughter, and OMG's, and what is she wearing, and ew look at her hair, and can you believe how beautiful she looks, and look at him, he's so dreamy, and hands off, Clooney is mine, and so on, all night long.

It's like, a virtual party, you know? Social media plays a huge part in allowing people to stay connected during awards shows. And that's just awesome. Twitter and Facebook are so much fun after a show's season finale, or after a big awards show like The Oscars. Comments, chatter, conversation, disagreements, and nods in unison bring us even closer, even though we're not in the same room.

Without our smartphones, watching awards shows wouldn't be as fun. I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on the all the fun we'll be having on our phones come Oscar night, so I'm happy to announce that I am giving away - thank you TELUS! - a brand new LG Optimus LTE! This smartphone will be your perfect companion for awards season. And although the winner won't actually receive the phone in time for this year's Oscar celebrations, there will always be something to watch together.

The LG Optimus LTE is a state of the art smartphone equipped with both an 8 megapixel camera and video camera.

The LG Optimus LTE is the perfect blend of super-fast data speeds and an amazing 4.5” HD display. Powered by Android2.3 and equipped with a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, the LG Optimus LTEis sharp, bright, fast and powerful.

The LG Optimus LTE lets users stay connected to everyone through video chat with a 1.3MP front-facing camera. It also offers an 8MP camera with 1080p video recording to take self-portraits or just capture life’s moments.

The LG Optimus LTE is an LTE device that will also run nationally on TELUS’ coast-to-coast HSPA+ network (which covers 97% of the Canadian population), so TELUS customers across Canada can enjoy it virtually anywhere.

Good Luck! I will pick a winner randomly on Sunday, February 26th. One entry per email address, please.
