As we begin the season leading up to the Academy Awards to be aired on Sunday,February 28, listed below are all the nominees. Since you probably haven’t had a chance to see all of the films vying for the little gold man, now is the time to familiarize yourself before Chris Rock makes fun of them all. This year’s controversy (every year has one) is that while some of the films might be in black and white, the nominees are all white and white. I’m sure Mr. Rock will have a thing or two to say about this condition while those of us with an unending admiration of Idris Elba are being appropriately grouchy. Just go see Beasts of No Nation and you can be grouchy as well. You can watch it on Netflix.
In the meantime, please weigh in with your guesses, hopes, favorite films of the year etc. There will be a test later in February should you wish to join in submitting your ballot.
