21 Days of Oscar – My Nominations

Tomorrow night is the Academy Awards so I’ve decided to celebrate the night by revealing the films I would have nominated in some of the top categories if I were an Academy member. I have only nominated films I have seen, so I have not nominated Helen Mirren for Best Actress for example, because I have not seen The Last Station not because I think she gave a bad performance. Tomorrow I will reveal my top choices in each category. I wish you all a lovely Oscar Eve!
