Oscar Nominations

I am a big movie fan. I’ve studied them and taken classes in screenwriting and film techniques. At one point, I wanted to be a filmmaker. Or do documentaries. So that’s a bit of background on why I studied them and analyzed the film techniques and movies.

Today the Oscar nominations were announced. I love watching the Oscars and watch from opening to close every year. I’ll do another post later with who I want to win vs who I think will win. Another thing I do is try to see all the movies that’s been nominated so I can give my honest opinion/thoughts.
