This blog, created in January 2013, is designed to share with everyone my passion for film and the Academy Awards. For many years, the Oscars has been the Super Bowl for the film industry, and even today, this still rings true. Each Academy Awards season, this blog is home to my “Top 15 Films of the Year” countdown, and it also acts as my personal ballot for many of the Oscar categories. Throughout the year, other posts will be posted as well, including seasonal film previews. I hope through this blog, you can share in my enthusiasm for the wonderful world of moving pictures and the accompanying Academy Awards—it’s a red carpet affair for the movie fan in you!
