And There Came Academy Awards Season

The 87th Annual Academy Awards Celebration will be held on February 22. The show will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and that should be a lot of fun!

Unless you’ve been under a media blackout (kind of like I tried to be after the Denver Broncos lost last weekend), you’ve seen the list of nominees.

This is the first year in quite a long time that I want to see all of the films nominated for Best Picture and will try to make that happen prior to February 22. And There Came A Day will review all the ones we’ve not yet reviewed and post new reviews as soon as we’ve seen the films… this quest begins today as HJ jr and I go to see Birdman later.

And There Came A Day will be posting all manner of Oscar material (including, yes, of course, how the Star Wars films and stars have fared in the Oscars during the daily Countdown to Episode VII posts)
