The Nominations of 2011Introduction
Another year comes to an end, film-making speaking, and Mr. Oscar got all polished, and came up with the movies he considers as best films for this year.
The past few days I’ve been watching the list of the best ones Mr. Oscar suggested. My eyes hurt but since I love movies it’s not a real torture either. 😛
Here is the list of all those movies (links lead to IMDb):
- 127 hours
- Black Swan
- The Fighter
- The Kids Are All Right
- The King’s Speech
- The Social Network
- Toy Story 3
- True Grit
- Winter’s Bone
Later on, I will post my impressions and predictions for each film. I haven’t heard what really happened to the Golden Globe Awards, or what the predictions are from various sources/opinions, simply because I want to have an unbiased opinion of my own, clearly just up to the films and only.
There are some movies that already stand out, but there are some others too, that I just can’t help myself but to think “How did they manage to get on Oscar’s list?”
Also, the Academy Awards themselves are kinda confusing the past few years. Actually the majority of film festivals have became confusing. The Oscars have now 24 categories! Twenty four! For Christ!
It’s like whatever the nominated film is about, they have chances to win something either way. And the “Oscar’s” slightest tiny reference can turn into more bucks for the producers than the movie actually worths for.
In the meantime, other films, and actors/actresses, are not even in for the major or right categories that you thought they would be nominated for.
What to do? Mr. Oscar has spoken, and this is the list for this year.
In the nest upcoming days I will be posting as I mentioned earlier, a post for each film. I have already watched five of them, and when I’ll finish with watching the Best Film nominees I might go ahead and continue with the rest categories too (Best Foreign Language Film, Best Documentary, Best Short Films etc)
May God help me to not burn my brain and eyes in the process. Amen.
By, the way, Mr. Oscar is 83? Hmm..Still younger than my grandma. Gotcha Mr. Oscar! Mwhahhahaha
