and the Oscar goes to…(The one that actually counts)

Honestly this year is basically guess work compared to yester years, plus the Academy decided that each year they can nominate between 5 – 10 films for best picture which to me is an absolute sham. Choose a number and stick to it. Anyway there’s a lot of competition and anyonecanwin scenarios plus a lot of unexpected nominations and omissions. I have yet to finalise my picks as the ceremony does not take place until the 26th of this month. Still have a few of the flicks to watch within that time and am incredibly keen to check out “My Week with Marilyn”. Here’s all the relevant information for your reading pleasure.
