77th Annual Academy Awards

I was going to make a post about my Oscar picks when I realized something . . . I haven't seen any of these movies. Of the big awards, I have seen precisely two of the nominees: Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Jamie Foxx in Collateral. The Aviator? Nope. Sideways? No. Hotel Rwanda? Sorry. No Million Dollar Baby, no Finding Neverland.

How did I manage to miss all of what are ostensibly the best films of the year? In fairness, I always intended to see The Aviator and Hotel Rwanda when they came out, but intentions count for little.



  1. same here, man. It's funny too, b/c while I usually pride myself on seeing indie / foreign films, a few made it big to a wider American audience this year and I totally spaced on them (like Sideways and Hotel Rwanda).

  2. 2004 wasn't a big movie year for me in general. I didn't see nearly as many as I usually do.
