Phew! Made it!
Since 1997 I have seen all 5 of the best picture Oscar nominated movies before the ceremony every single year. That's a 10 year running rule. (Actually, since 1987 I have only missed 3 out of 105 movies.) And yes, for those of you who don't enjoy movies very much you can very freely tell me that I'm a little bit obsessed. I can handle it. In fact, I'd even say it about myself.
This year the Oscar nominations came on on January 22nd. At that time I had seen exactly ONE of the 5 best picture nominations. Oh dear. I'm fairly confident that's the lowest ever. That little girl in my life is hampering my movie viewing time. Seriously, it's unacceptable.
And yet, here I sit, less than one month later and I can now thankfully say that I have once again managed to catch all 5 best picture nominations before the Oscar ceremony and with 5 days to spare.
P.S. Thanks, J-L for "babysitting"* while I went out. * He, he. For those of you who don't know him well, he won't even be able to see the thanks in that statement due to that WORD. Ask him sometime about his opinion on that word in relation to fathers. Ask him and then maybe step back a foot - just a suggestion; I'm not the only one in the family who's opinionated.
