Oscars

One Last Category

It has been over a week since the Academy Awards and I was overall happy with the results.  Not all of my choices -- in my yearly competition with friends – won; but the winners in the major categories were talented, deserving people.
 

Remember to Thank Your Significant Other – Part 2

It's almost time, folks! The Academy Awards presentation will be this Sunday, February 27, on ABC. Hosted by Anne Hathaway, a past nominee, and James Franco, a current nominee, it should be a fun show. The competition is particularly strong this year and some categories are unpredictable.

In my last two blogs I covered the Best Picture, then Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor. It's time to introduce the ladies.

Remember to Thank Your Significant Other -- Part 1

The Academy Awards presentation is just over two weeks from now. And it's time to take a look at the acting nominations for this year. I had originally planned to cover both actors and actresses in this blog entry.  However, I decided it might be best to stick with the former this time around.

The Oscars: May the Best Picture Win

For us movie fans, this past Tuesday was a big day. The nominations for the 83rd Academy Awards were announced. There are many awards presented every year: the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild, the Directors Guild, Producers Guild, and Writers Guild. Critics choose their favorites, too.  There are even “awards” for the worst movies of the year, the Razzies, which sometimes overlap the other awards. But nothing matches the Oscars for recognition and excitement.

The Oscars and Women's History Month

The two subjects in the title of this blog entry have more than a little in common this morning. For the first time in the history of the Academy Awards – 82 years! – a woman won for Best Director. Kathryn Bigelow took home the Oscar for Best Director for The Hurt Locker, the drama about a bomb unit in wartime Iraq. The Hurt Locker was also named Best Picture.

The Academy Award for Best Picture

            There always seems to be a lot of buzz about the Best Picture Oscar.

  

"And the Oscar goes to..."

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominations for the 82nd Awards – otherwise known as Oscars -- this morning. For the first time since 1943, there are more than five movies nominated for Best Picture.
