    Oscar season! I’m in a rush to watch all the films so I can assess their prospects well.

    The Academy likes bios –
    The Imitation Game
    The Theory of Everything

    Redmayne up against Cumberbatch. Tough call.

    There she is again – Meryl Streep. Legend.

    Can’t believe I refused to watch Birdman and Grand Budapest Hotel. I hope Cineworld brings them back in their “take 2” special.

    Another white dominated award show still significantly lacking diversity. I would not be watching this year.

    Black people need to build things for themselves that white people will complain about not being a part of!

    the movies nominated this year are not as strong when compaired to last year.

    12 years a slave, captin Phillips, wolf of wallstreet, her, nebraska, gravity.

    I have watched some of these movies, the imitation game is lovely, its about the father of the modern day computer, Alan turing, he broke the enigma code and won world war 2. he was gay, instead of them( (british government) to praise and honour his hard work, he was castrated for being gay. its a true life story. he committed suicide. if not for him, over 40 million people would have died in the war.

    he is the father of modern day computers. alk the devices we use today, its because of him. its a true life story. google it. the british government castrated him for being gay.

    foxcatcher is boring, I dont understand the movie birdman.

    boyhood is the winner for best picture. I have seen it and its amazing. gone girl is also amazing.

    A few snobs that deserved to be here, they missed it this year and I’m not surprised, I knew it would be like this already.
