Bring on the Oscars!
Now that the Golden Globe winners have been announced, we can all look forward to the award show that people really care about, the Academy Awards! This year's Oscar nominations will be announced very soon, January 25 at 7:30am CT to be exact, so this is the perfect time to refresh your memory of past Oscar winners (and losers) and read up on reviews of 2010's best movies.
For a history of the Oscars, there's no better source than 80 Years of the Oscar: the Official History of the Academy Awards by Robert Osbourne. Or perhaps you're the adventurous type and want to check out the unofficial history?
How about reviews? There are a lot of choices out there, but my favorite is Metacritic.com, which takes scores from critics across the country and combines them into one score for each movie. Easy to use and includes music, games, and TV shows, too!
