This is the year for The 84th Academy Awards!
The official nominations came in today, and there are only 33 days left until the awards show, which will air Sunday night on February 26th. I can't wait to see which film wins Best Picture, I can honestly say that I have no idea what will happen this year.

so what do you think? which film will win best picture? I'm taking a wild guess and saying The Artist (which I haven't seen yet), but it's a silent film/musical and it looks absolutely amazing. Plus it won the Golden Globe award for Best Picture along with the Descendants.
I am making it my goal to watch all of the main nominated films before the awards show. Wish me luck!
