Films in 2018: April

I didn’t get quite back in the hang of my more usual viewing habits for April, though I watched slightly more movies this past month than I did in March, including several re-watches. A good portion of the month was dedicated to William Holden, who was TCM’s Star of the Month in honor of his…

William Holden’s Oscar-Nominated Performances

On this day 100 years ago, one of cinema’s finest actors was born, the great William Holden! He’s easily among my top 5 favorite actors of all-time (maybe even top 3 or 2!); no matter the quality of the movie he’s in, he always turns out a good performance. For his centenary, I’m focusing on…

Films in 2018: March

March ended up being quite a busy month for me, and as such, I, unfortunately, didn’t have as much time to watch movies so this blog post will be pretty brief. Despite that, it was an overall exciting month, with the 90th Academy Awards and visiting the Los Angeles area a week later (including my…

The 90th Academy Awards: My Picks and Predictions

Happy Oscar weekend! As is my annual tradition on this blog, it’s now time for me to make my predictions on which films will take home the Academy Award. And for the top eight categories (the four for acting, the two screenplay categories, Best Director, and of course, Best Picture), I’ll be including which of…

Films in 2018: February

As it is the shortest month of the year, February really came and went. Despite it all, I did squeeze in a good number of movies throughout the month, most of which were related to the Oscars, both this year’s ceremony and years past. And speaking of the Academy Awards, I’m in the midst of finalizing…

Lost But Not Forgotten: Oscar Nominees for Best Picture

For my final post on nominees that never won an Academy Award, I’m looking at films nominated for Best Picture and at least one other category that ended up not winning anything. So while these films received multiple Oscar nominations, I still find them memorable today despite not taking home any gold. Note: I narrowed…

Lost But Not Forgotten: Oscar Nominees for Best Actress

Today’s post concludes my look at the Oscar nominees who never won among the four acting categories, with what’s probably my favorite of those categories: Best Actress! More often than not, it’s the acting category that’s the strongest to me in just about any year in the Academy Awards’ 90-year history. Note: I narrowed it…

Lost But Not Forgotten: Oscar Nominees for Best Actor

We’re now just a couple weeks away from this year’s Oscar ceremony! Last week I posted about my favorite nominees in the Best Supporting Actress and Actor categories, specifically the ones that never won an Academy Award. This weekend, I’ll be taking a look at those types of nominees in the leading categories. As you’ll…
