And I’m terribly behind.

I have not seen one, ONE, movie nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars this year. Who am I and what happened to the real Lauren?

Just in case, here’s the recap:

  1. Amour
  2. Argo
  3. Beasts of the Southern Wild
  4. Django Unchained
  5. Les Miserables
  6. Life of Pi
  7. Lincoln
  8. Silver Linings Playbook
  9. Zero Dark Thirty

I have read the book, Life of Pi, and heard that the movie is very good. I’ve only heard amazing things about Silver Linings Playbook and hope this weekend I might have some spare time to go check it out.

I now have until February 25th at 7pm (or something) to try and squeeze in 9 movies in order to give my best opinion on what I feel will win.

For the past two or three years I have been able to accurately predict the winner – The Hurt Locker, The King’s Speech, & The Artist. All amazing films. I can’t wait to see what wins this year and to get caught up with some much needed movie watching.

Sadly, I might have to put the books down for a a few hours here and there in order to accomplish this goal but I guess we all have sacrifices to make. First world problem. 

Speaking of … I’m going back to reading.
