I have a three-day weekend this week, so I’m headed over the the movie store this morning to grab as many Oscar nominees as I can to cram for Sunday’s Oscars. I always enjoy Oscar evening, it’s probably as exciting to me as the Superbowl is to most everyone else. When I worked for a couple former employers, I used to organize an Oscar pool. Whoever picked the most Oscar winners would win the pot. This year I made up a little spreadsheet of the Best Picture nominees to take with me to the movie store, so I thought I’d share it here. It shows the number of Oscar nominations and the current IMDB rating each movie currently has. It’s sorted by IMDB rating. I know only a few of them are out on DVD already, so those will be the ones I’ll probably rent.
|Title||IMDB Rating||Oscar Nominations|
|Midnight in Paris||7.8||4|
|Tree of Life||7.1||3|
|Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close||6.5||2|
