It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year: Movie Viewing Season!

It's that time of year again... MOVIE VIEWING SEASON! I kick it off with true viewing gusto on... my birthday!

The 67th Golden Globe awards are January 17th! My viewing checklist can be found here, if you are interested. I don't track every category, just the ones that interest me -- I am the director of my checklist. I use the Globes as a guideline, but I'm not quite as interested in the outcomes for this show. It gives the viewer a good running start as to what the academy might be thinking.

Then, the 82nd Oscars are March 7th! (Checklist forthcoming, after the nominee announcements on February 2.) This is the grand-daddy of award shows! The screenplays! The costume design! The best score! The fashion! Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin as dual hosts!! The overpaid starlets fawning over each other as though they have cured cancer! No! Your work is fabulous! No! Your work is fabulous! I love every ridiculous minute of it.
