5TH ANNUAL OSCAR CHALLENGE

Five years has flown by. For five years now, I have made a point to see all the films nominated for Academy Awards (all of the ones I can find anyway). Even if I have seen them, I will watch them again, all before the Awards ceremony in the following months. Through this challenge, I discover films I would have never seen otherwise, I get a better understanding of what the Academy sees in certain films, and ultimately I just have fun trying to get through all the films in the short amount of time, and forming my own opinions in the process. If you are so inclined to follow along or challenge yourself to join, below is the calendar of my progress.
