Film Friday: The Oscars
“Movies are something people see all over the world because there is a certain need for it.” ~ Wim Wenders
Say! Look at that! I have been invited to the Oscars this year. The Academy award winning movies and the range of nominations is extensive from best picture, to best actor/actress, to best animated feature, best editor, top visual effects and sound artists and so much more – a total of twenty four categories.
Here is a list of nominees for best feature film. How many did you get the opportunity to see?
- Silver Linings Playbook
- Zero Dark Thirty
- Beasts of the Southern Wild
- Django Unchained
- Les Miserables
- Life of Pi
I did not get a chance to see all of these films but of those I saw, my personal favorite was Les Miserables, without a doubt. Most disappointing? Life of Pi, however, the visual effects were fulfilling; perhaps a prize will come in that category.

Have a great weekend everyone, I am hoping to take in one more movie on the list this weekend, and that would be Lincoln. From the great reviews it has gotten, my favorite pick may be changed once I see it.

I haven’t done very well with my Oscar nominated movie viewing from this year’s list. So far, I’ve only seen one and it happens to be what we now know is the winner – Argo. Definitely a very good movie. I hadn’t heard of that episode in the Iran hostage crisis before, so I don’t know if those events were only revealed recently or whether it just hadn’t attracted the attention of a movie maker before.
I was so dissappointed in Les Miserables performance at the Oscars.It was quite a production and I felt it didnt get the credit it deserved. And Life of Pi got the visual effects recognition it deserved. Missed seeing Argo.
