My Last Minute Oscar Picks

If there’s anything on television that I wait all year to watch, it’s the Academy Awards. There are plenty of people who think that they mean nothing or that they’re overrated, but for me they’re just… great. I love Oscar season because I get to see so many movies that wouldn’t normally come to any theaters close to me. I probably wouldn’t have seen any of my favorite movies for the last five years if it hadn’t been for the Oscars. While they aren’t the be-all-end-all of film, they do get me excited.
