I won’t lie. I have not been the biggest fan of the Academy Awards in the last couple of years, but even I can be swooped up in the movie magic now and then. This weekend my local cinema is showing the movies that are being nominated for Best Picture in the 2014 Academy Awards, only one will be receiving that very important Oscar statue and I want in on the talk about it all. So I’ll be taking me time to go see those nine movies in preparation for it all.
I have also joined forces with Adam Owen of Adam Likes To Watch to produce content around the Awards, we’ll be doing a very special podcast for the award show and I’m trying to convince him that maybe we can do something Live for it as well, who knows, we certainly don’t yet, this was all decided on a whim. Tomorrow my first two reviews will be going up for the nine Best Picture nominees, those two will be Philomena and American Hustle respectively. I can’t wait to see them.
The 86th Academy Awards will be taking place on the night of Sunday the 2nd of March. See you there.
Best Picture Nominees:
- American Hustle
- Captain Philips
- Dallas Buyers Club
- The Wolf of Wall Street
- 12 Years A Slave
