The Oscars nominations are announced Thursday morning and I review those selections and movies over the next few weeks leading up the that awards show on February 22nd. This year’s host is Neil Patrick Harris.
My hunch is that this year’s Academy Awards nominations and winners will be vastly different than the Golden Globes–but more to follow on that.
