Hey, Fellow Film Fans!
Curious to know what your favorite film critics have to say about this year’s crop of Oscar hopefuls, before the ceremony, itself? Join Dan Rodricks, host of Midday with Dan Rodricks, Linda DeLibero, Associate Director, Film and Media Studies, Johns Hopkins University, and me, this Friday, February 22, at 1pm, as we discuss the nominees on WYPR, 88.1FM, Baltimore’s NPR News Station.*
I already blogged my initial reactions to the nominations, on January 10, right after they were announced, but since then I have seen a few more of the films, and have broadened my opinions of the ones I had already seen. Below, therefore, is a list of the nominees, with the ones I would be OK seeing win highlighted in yellow. I may have my specific preferences for the winners (and tune in Friday to hear those), but these are the films, performances, and craft achievements that I think are worthy enough to merit serious attention.
I still have yet to see two of the foreign films – Kon-Tiki and No – one of the documentaries – The Gatekeepers – and any of the short documentaries, so it’s not a complete list. Otherwise, I have managed to see everything. Go me!
Which films, actors, craftspeople are your favorites to win?
