Oscar Time!

Well, this week the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released the nominations for this year’s Oscars. I only agree with part of their picks but then I only saw 29 of the films eligible for awards this year. From the movies I did see, my nominees for best picture are (and I get seven because it’s not an official list): AMERICAN SPLENDOR, BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM, BIG FISH, DIRTY PRETTY THINGS, IN AMERICA, LOST IN TRANSLATION, and WHALE RIDER.

With the best picture award going to: LOST IN TRANSLATION.

Tamara will undoubtedly have her own best picture pick (I hear she has a special place in her heart for UPTOWN GIRLS).

Here’s a list of the films eligible for this years awards that I did see. And after that are the films I’ve seen that were eligible in 2002, 2001, and 2000. Most of the films were seen in the year of eligibility but a few have been added since with DVD rentals. I’m not saying these are the best pictures of each year. I saw many films on these lists that I still want to see but haven’t yet gotten around to it. I’m not linking these to the Internet Movie Database (like I did above) but you can find information on all of them at that site.
