Well, almost. I love the Academy Awards and faithfully watch it every year, no matter how late it runs or how boring some of the speeches are. (I’ve been known to rewind to a speech I liked to skip over a dull one.) Last year, I had not seen any of the nominated films (pregnancy and baby pretty much ate up my movie going time, sadly), but this year I’ve already seen five of the ten nominated movies and I’m planning to see at least two more. Here are this year’s nominees and I’ve linked to the ones I’ve seen. What else should I see before February 27th?
Of the fivemovies I’ve seen so far (and all five were very good, though I feel like Black Swan was overrated), I think my favorite was Inception. I am not a big Leonardo DiCaprio fan, but I loved the premise from the first time I saw the trailer and the cinematography was amazing. But my Oscar pick for Best Actress in a Supporting Role is Hailee Steinfeld in True Grit. What an amazing performance.
