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!

Best Picture Odyssey: The Finale

Okay, here we go! In anticipation of the Oscars this Sunday, I’ve ranked the nominees for Best Picture, from best to worst. Check the links for my full reviews. Also, in case you’re wondering, I still favor The Artist for Best Picture. I’ve heard talk that Hugo might have a better shot, but I still believe that The Artist will prevail. Anyway, here’s the list!

1.) The Artist

2.) Moneyball

3.) The Descendants

4.) The Help

5.) Midnight in Paris

6.) War Horse

7.) Hugo

8.) Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

9.) The Tree of Life
