The Golden Globes are in the rearview mirror, and Oscar season is nearly here. With 341 eligible films in the running, it’s anyone’s guess who will be nominated.

That being said, with just over a week until the nominees are announced (January 23rd), now is the time where we get to not quite as blindly guess who will be nominated. More importantly, we can hope and dream. Read the rest of this entry


…Be Unpredictable


Happy Oscar Sunday! Or as it may come to be known, La La Landpalooza.

While tonight’s results may seem set in stone until those envelopes are opened all the nominees are still potential winners…and who knows there may even be some surprises.

Right now we can all relish in the unknown, and remember that the only certainty about tonight is that someone will win in each category and that things will get political.

Another certainty is that the 2WC will be providing you with our picks for tonight’s awards. We’re going big again this year and making picks in all 24 categories.

Full disclosure, some of the more obscure ones are based on things like the title of the film, the movie poster, or one of the nominee’s names sounding like they’d be a cool dude to hang out with.

Seeing as this is one of only two full weekends left to take in the flicks, I’ll be giving you three recommendations for this weekend. Better three movies in one weekend then five or six.

…come into view

Film ProjectorWell, folks, whether you plan to savor it, or avoid it at all costs, Super Bowl weekend has arrived.

For the non-football fans, fear not, the countdown to the Oscars marches on as well, and with only three (and half) weekends left to take in the best picture nominees, it’s time to get viewing.

As long-time readers know (and Zer shared last week), we’ll be reviewing all of the Best Picture nominees leading up to this year’s Academy Awards (and you can see some early reviews here), and we like to encourage our readers to play along at home.

Last Friday, Zer eased you in with some of this year’s lighter fare, so this week, I thought I’d dive a bit deeper with a quick look at a couple nominated films with a common thread, to offer for your weekend viewing consideration. Grab the tissues now…
