New year, new look, new layout. I reorganized the blog to make it easier to find old posts. Above you will find links to categories and links to years. (Feel free to ignore last year, which I am dubbing “the dark year” of the Anna in Oscarland blog). I can’t believe this is the fourth year I am attempting to watch all the Oscar nominated films. How time flies.

If you’re new to my blog, welcome! My goal is to watch all the nominated films before the Oscars air (except for the foreign films, shorts, and documentaries only because they’re usually much harder to find). Then I blog a review that is focused on the categories the movie was nominated for (or should have been nominated for). I’m no professional, just an avid movie fan.

Anyway, on to the nominations! There are a total of 32 movies nominated this year (excluding Foreign Films, Shorts, and Documentaries). Here’s the link to the official list:
