2011 Oscar Checklist

Now that this year’s Oscar nominees have been announced, I need to get my butt to the theater to catch the rest of the movies I haven’t seen yet (at present, I’m only about 1/4 there.) To that end, I typed up a handy checklist of the movies that were nominated in the categories I watch: Best Picture, the Acting categories, Cinematography, Directing, Editing, and Writing (no surprise that the categories I watch doubles as a list of the things that I do & want to get better at.) No commentary in this post, just more of a “to do” list.
