Friday Fives - Oscar Edition

Friday Fives Badge
Elizabeth over at Table for Five has started a new weekly meme that's pretty simple.  Just share a list - of anything! 

Since the Academy Awards are Sunday, I thought I'd list the Best Picture Nominees that I have not seen.
  1. The Artist
  2. The Descendants
  3. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
  4. Hugo
  5. Midnight in Paris
 and a couple bonuses - The Tree of Life and War Horse!

That's right - of the 9 movies nominated for Best Picture, I've seen two of them - The Help and Moneyball.  I guess I really don't need to watch the Oscars...

How many of the movies on the list have you seen?  Which one do you think will win?  (For a bit of fun, you can go here and make your picks in all the categories and see what other people are thinking - and then, of course, compare results on Sunday night.)

And for even more fun visit Table for Five and join Friday Fives with your own list!

    1. I felt pretty good last year, because we had seen several of the movies and knew exactly why The King's Speech was getting all that buzz. But this year is really more typical.

      I guess I can watch and hope one of the movies I've seen, or somebody who was in one of them, wins something. The Help really was good! And Moneyball? I don't even like baseball, but I enjoyed it a lot. That alone should be worth an Oscar!


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
