Awards season is in full swing with the “Big Night” happening on March 2, 2014. Will your favorite movie win many accolades including the coveted Best Movie of the Year award?
Some of this year’s most talked about pictures – Blue Jasmine, Captain Philips and Dallas Buyers Club I have not seen yet. I have seen Despicable Me 2 which is nominated for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year and Best Original Song, Happy by Pharrrell Williams.
The one thing that gets to me when I watch the award’s shows is that I have not yet seen the movies that are nominated for the awards. Normally I have to wait until after awards season is over before I have the opportunity to see them and see why they won the awards. Last year I lucked out because I actually did see a few of the films that were nominated but it was only recently that I saw Argo, which won Best Picture and Silver Linings Playbook which was nominated for several awards.
