Best Picture Odyssey – 2014 Edition

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences just released their nominations for this year’s Academy Awards. It’s been a while since I’ve really talked about the Oscars on this blog, so I’m bringing back a feature from 2 years ago that was pretty popular. In the run-up to the Academy Awards on March 2nd, I’ll publish reviews of every Best Picture nominee. I’ve already written reviews for 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, and The Wolf of Wall Street, so that leaves the following list.

– American Hustle 

– Captain Phillips

– Dallas Buyers Club

– Her

– Nebraska

– Philomena

A review will go up every Saturday, leading up to the day before the ceremony when I’ll post my final thoughts and predictions. Get excited!

Announcement: Best Picture Odyssey

As you are probably aware, the nominations for the 2012 Academy awards were announced a few days ago. Film nerds lit up with excitement all across the blogosphere, myself being no exception. Although I unfortunately will be unable to attend AMC’s annual Best Picture Showcase, I have dedicated myself to seeing every Best Picture nominee before the Oscars on February 26th. I will write a review of every nominee, and then make a more informed prediction about the winner. It should be a lot of fun.

I’ve already seen three of the nine nominees and reviewed them. You can find those reviews here:

The Artist

The Descendants

War Horse
