I have eight and a half hours left to go see all the nominated movies for Best Picture because as it stands now, I’ve seen none of them. I have read Argo, Les Miserables and Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln. I learned a long time ago not to get my history from movies. If you do that, you end up believing FDR got out of his wheelchair and walked.
I did see Moonrise Kingdom, which I thought was wonderful, just not wonderful enough to get nominated for Best Picture. I’m sure I will see all nine movies eventually since they all look good. I just won’t put too much stock into which one they single out as Best Picture. They can’t think I’ve forgotten about Dances With Wolves and The English Patient. I mean, seriously.
I hope it’s an enjoyable show for everyone who will be watching, but I’m going with hockey and The Walking Dead.
