It's Time! Countdown to the Oscars

It's that time of year again where everyone who blogs about movies tends to blog about anything Oscar-related for a month. Last year I covered the 1st through 18th Academy Award Ceremonies (1928 - 1946) - you can view them here. This year I hope to cover 1947 - 1969. I will also do a Timeline of Award-Winning Fashions for the 31 Days of Oscar Blogathon and look at the William Powell Snubs for the Oscar Snubs Blogathon, in addition to other blogathons scheduled this month.


This year, Turner Classic Movies is again having a 31 Days of Oscar. This year, however, each film will be linked to the film shown before it. You can read more about it here as well as download the schedule of Oscar winning and nominated films for the month. If you have not already seen it, I highly recommend watching And the Oscar Goes To... (2014), a wonderful documentary that covers the birth of the Oscars up to the present (some parts are not suitable for children). It will air several times throughout the month, beginning February 1st at 8pm EST.

I will also be hosting a Best Costume Awards for the years they didn't have it. Read more about it here! I hope you will participate!
