Its already that time of year! The Academy Awards will be awarded this Sunday. Will you be watching? Have you seen many of the nominated films? Do you even know which films and actors are nominated? (I don't LOL) Just wondering, but does anybody else seem to recall that they used to be presented in late March?

Here's the link to the official Oscars webpage in case you want to get up to speed before the big night!

I looked online the other day - only saw a few of them and not really into awards shows. (saw ParaNorman, Frankenweenie, Brave, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Skyfall, Snow White and the Huntsman, The Hobbit) But I did put the nominated movies on my library request list!

I had to look at the webpage to see the nominated movies, and it turns out that I've only seen one: Beasts of the Southern Wild. The young actress did a wonderful job in her role but since I cannot compare it to any other performances I don't know if she was the best.

I will probably watch some of the awards show. Here it starts at 4pm which is kind of early to start sitting in front of the tv---I don't know if that is a pre-show or the actual show. I do like to see the gowns, but the best and worst ones will be on the NYTimes and iVillage the next day so I'll get to see them, eventually.

 I had to go to link to find out what movies are nominated.   Looks like I have seen 2 of them Argo and Zero Dark 30,  I really liked both of them, expecially Argo, liked it even more than I thought I would.    I am waiting to see Lincoln, those that I know who have seen it did not like it as much as they thought they would so I am waiting for it to come to the discount theater. 

  I may or may not watch the Awards. Will not plan around it but may turn it on.

Haven't seen any of the movies & may or may not watch Oscars if I stay up that late.  Depends on what time I go to bed.
