Tonight is the Academy Awards. I’m a movie lover and try to see as many of the nominated movies as I can so I have a reason to watch the show and root for my favourites.
I have not seen any of the movies where the Best Actor is nominated. I’m sorry I missed “The Danish Girl” with Eddie Redmayne. He was excellent as Steven Hawking in “The Theory of Everything” last year.
Christian Bale is nominated for Best Supporting Actor in “The Big Short” but he seemed like a Lead Actor. He had a big part. I feel the same way about Mark Ruffalo in “Spotlight”. I would have named him as a Leading Actor.
Rachel McAdam is nominated in a supporting role for “Spotlight”. The movie had an ensamble cast so she and Mark Ruffalo were not nominated in best actor or actress categories, even though it seemed they were. What movies have you seen? Will you watch the awards tonight?
