First Post

Hi, my name is Andrew, and I'm a Movie-holic. I've been a big fan of movies for as long as I can remember, and ever since I was 8 years old, my favorite annual event hasn't been the Super Bowl or the World Series, but the Academy Awards; at my house, Oscar Sunday is the biggest day of the year. For about 6 years, I ran The Oscar Trivia Page, a site that has since been lost to the annals of internet history when Geocities ceased operations last year. For the past 5 years, I've challenged myself to see every film nominated by the time of the awards ceremony (with the exception of the "specialty" films, i.e. short films, foreign language films, and documentaries). This year, I decided to document my progress as I go and review the movies I've seen. I'll be devoting this blog to reviews of the nominated films, occasional news updates on the ceremony itself, predictions, and perhaps a bit of Oscar trivia (for which I may shamelessly plagiarize my defunct trivia site).

It may be worth starting off by mentioning that, excluding the above-mentioned special categories (except when films are nominated in non-special categories as well) there are 34 films nominated for Oscars in 2010. As of yesterday when the nominations were announced, I have seen 11 of the nominated films, so I certainly have my work cut out for me. If you have any suggestions for future posts or different ideas for what you’d like to see on here, please feel free to comment.

Thanks for reading, and happy movie-going.
