We are in the thick of awards season. Next up: The Oscars this Sunday! There are 9 (count ’em, NINE) nominees for Best Picture. Believe it or not, I got off my duff and saw three of these in the theatre. I REALLY enjoyed all three, and think they are ALL deserving of the Academy Award. However, just ONE of those three is considered a “favorite” to win. That leaves six films about which I am clueless. I bet you’re in the same boat. So, let’s take a quick look at all the nominees and then make our picks.
