Academy voters have a tendency of messing up, giving the wrong people awards and being generally ridiculous. And here's the proof.
By the time that the nominations are announced, I have seen most of them. Basically, you could say I know what I'm talking about when it comes to supporting actors and original scores. Knowing that most college students are not like me, I've thrown together a little rundown of the major films to be familiar with this Oscar Sunday. No one needs to know you didn't technically see the films.
I've never met anyone that doesn't like watching The Oscars. There's something for everyone: the movies, the fashion, the cute actors... Get ready, here's the list of 2012's nominees!
The time has come! After hours upon hours in dark movie theaters, countless boxes of Sour Patch Kids and probably 17 Rachel Zoe red carpet dress meltdowns (literally), The 83rd Annual Academy Awards are finally here! And we couldn't be more excited - for the couture, for the Best Film category, and for the delicious Thai food we just had delivered (Love you, fresh rolls!).
You may not know by now, but I’m a movie nerd. In fact, I have seen all of the films nominated for Best Picture this year at the Academy Awards. Which brings us to why we’re here: I’m going to help those of you who didn’t want to spend a million dollars at the theater last year, but still want to impress at your Oscar party guests.
The Oscar nominations are in. And the claws are out. Once the Academy Award nominations are public knowledge you expect there to be gossip, some hurt feelings, some angry fans, and some shocked directors. But this year, things have gone a little too far.
The 2010 Oscars nominations were announced this morning, and sci-fi shoo-in 'Avatar' and the war-on-terror thriller 'The Hurt Locker' lead the Academy Awards with nine nominations each including Best Picture. Other nominees in the best picture category include: 'Blind Side,' 'District 9,' 'An Education,' 'Inglorious Basterds,' 'Precious,' 'A Serious Man,' 'Up' and 'Up in the Air.'
