I love movies! I try and see most of the Oscar nominated films each year. (This year I only missed Tree of Life, War Horse and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - movies that I don't necessarily feel compelled to see so I don't feel guilty about missing them.)
It's been forever since I posted to my lj so I thought I would take this opportunity to do some polls in anticipation of the Oscars tonight. I'll be watching with marymaryaunt_deen
and more. The best way to watch and awards show is with good food, drinks and friends.
(LJ isn't cooperating with the polls at the moment so we will have to do this Old School. Post your pick in the comments.)( Collapse )
I also want The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore or La Luna to win Animated Short Film and while I LOVED Pentecost, I want Tuba Atlantic to win Live Action Short Film but Raju will probably win.
I adored Midnight in Paris. I own it on bluray and have watched it a couple of times (and had to see in two theaters on the same day since power went out in the first). And while I really liked Hugo, I'm pulling for The Artist to win. I walked out of the theater with a huge smile on my face when I saw that film. I drove one of my friends crazy until she saw it. There's something about it that I just can't explain. I can't wait to watch it again.
So what about you? Any film you are pulling for? Any thing you are cheering against?
