It’s Oscar Season!!

(I’m not talking about baby stuff!)

So the Oscar nominees were announced this week, and that’s always very exciting for me. For one thing, it means that the TCM lineup for the next 5ish weeks is going to be amazing! (I hope, don’t let me down now, TCM!)

I love the Oscars. I love the history and the pageantry and the opportunity for a party and a night of snark-filled twitter rants.

As usual, this year is filled with nominations for films I haven’t seen. What can I say? Love stories involving computers and movies about people staring vacantly out of windows in muted tones just don’t really draw me.

But that’s not really the point. The point is Jennifer Lawrence has been nominated for another award and I am stinkin’ excited.

I’m also excited because my friend Ashley is back at Ft. Bliss this year, which means a fantastic Oscar viewing party will be had! I’m also looking forward to Ellen hosting. Should be entertaining. And I can’t wait till they announce the rest of the program. Last years’ was only okay. Although “We Saw Your Boobs” was full of #win.

We’re going to the movies this weekend, but I think only one nominee is on our list (we still haven’t seen “Frozen.”) Might go for “American Hustle,” but only after “Frozen,” “Lone Survivor,” “Jack Ryan,” and “Walter Mitty.”

What are you rooting for this year?


  1. I love the Oscars too! I have not seen any of the movies either. But I am definitely rooting for JLaw. :)

  2. I'm still excited to watch even though I'm not excited about any of the Best Picture nominees. But I really hope this year is a better one for movies!

  3. I really want to see American Hustle!

  4. American Hustle looks so good! We need to find a sitter so we can watch it.
