Sure, just what you were looking for – another blogger’s opinion of the Oscars. Well, if that doesn’t spin your wheels, then by all means stroll on down the information superhighway and ignore this post. But, if it does interest you – let me give you a little background in why my opinion is worth the html it is printed in… 1) I am a huge movie buff (yippie, who isn’t?) 2) I am a filmmaker (okay, so that give you a little credence) 3) I have worked in all aspects of filmmaking – acting, directing, producing, editing, sound design, casting, camerawork, extra work, etc. etc. (okay, another feather in your cap) and finally, 4) because its my blog and I can do what I want to do (fine, just get on with the Oscar stuff).
I am not going down the entire list because frankly there are some Oscars that don’t interest me. I will also not be covering all of them in this post. What I will be doing here is listing the ones that I will cover in more detail as we get closer to the Oscar Night. There are several that I need to see still before I can choose my winners. Well, enough banter – here is the list of awards that I will be covering in upcoming blogs.
