Oscar Season Begins



It's that time again! The 82 Academy Award nominees have been released so it's time to start watching some movies. I always gets excited for them, the film major in me just can't help it, despite the fact I rarely go to the movies these days.

The first thing I do is I print out the list. I then check off all of the movies I have already seen and look up all the ones that are available on On Demand. Then I go to YouTube and listen to all of the Original Song and Original Score nominees, checking them off as I go.

This year I also googled the animated shorts and was pleased to find some available right online! Here's what I found-

French Roast
Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty
The Lady and the Reaper (La Dama y la Muerte)

I particularly enjoyed The Lady and the Reaper (great colors!) followed closely by French Roast.

What are your Oscar traditions?

Get really drunk and not watch? Hi Lucie. It's Kim (by the way I've never posted on a blog before; congrats to you for popping my cherry).

I try to watch all the oscar nominated movies and vote for myself. I am usually disapointed which film gets the oscar but I guess that is the fun in it.
