Oscar Night Checklist

I’m in the middle of my annual January Oscar frenzy where I try to see as many nominated movies as possible.  I’m doing pretty well, but still have a few major contenders left.  I thought I’d share my progress by breaking down the nominees into three categories:

  • Movies I’ve seen
  • Movies I plan to see before Oscar night
  • Movies everyone is telling me I should see, and I know they’re probably very good movies, but at the end of the day, all I can muster up for interest when I think about them is a halfhearted “eh.”

I mean, those are the same categories that everyone keeps, right?

Movies I’ve seen

  • American Sniper (Best Picture, Best Actor)
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel (Best Picture, Best Director)
  • The Imitation Game (Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director)
  • The Judge (Best Supporting Actor)
  • Into the Woods (Best Supporting Actress)

Movies I plan to see

  • Birdman (Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director)
  • Boyhood (Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director)
  • Selma (Best Picture)

Movies I should see, but… eh

  • The Theory of Everything (Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director)
  • Whiplash (Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Director)
  • Foxcatcher (Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Director)
  • Wild (Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress)
  • Still Alice (Best Actress)
