Being a silver screen tragic, these early weeks of the new year, before the Oscars are announced, are a feast. The Oscars are scheduled for 7th March. Nominations for Best Picture are:
|Avatar (*)||The Blind Side|
|District 9||An Education|
|The Hurt Locker||Inglorious Basterds|
|Precious (*)||A Serious Man|
|Up||Up in the Air (*)|
I have seen the films asterisked. This coming weekend I will see "A Serious Man" and "Invictus". I must get a move on as I am only one third of the way there.
My favourite film for 2010 thus far is "Bright Star", with "Nowhere Boy" ranking next.
The Sydney French Film Festival commences (for me) on 3rd March, four films with my daughter and four films with a friend. Ahhh ... bliss ...
