THE OSCAR PROJECT
The Oscar Project
A quest to watch every Oscar nominated film
A film that you dozed off in
Believe it or not, this was a really hard category for me. I usually don’t fall asleep in movies unless I’m watching them late at night and I’m super tired. When that happens, it’s no fault of the movie and I didn’t think it was fair to pick one of those for today.
Now, my actual selection is one I’ve probably dozed off in a few times but the first one is kind of memorable. Every summer for the past five or six years, we have taken at least one trip to the nearest drive-in theater to our home. We look for the double feature with two animated movies and have gotten to see gems like Inside Out (link), Toy Story 4, and Minions. We’ve also had to endure a few duds, one of which was Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation.
Now, to be fair, I was tasked with the job of walking around the parking lot during this movie with a 2-year-old who wasn’t thrilled about having to sit still through two whole movies. Honestly though, I wasn’t too sad about it because I had missed enough of the film trying to get the little one to sleep, I was able to doze off myself and not miss the end of the movie.
But don’t worry, I have since seen this movie my fair share of times over the past two years, and may have dozed off during it at least once more. I loved the first two films in the franchise, but this was yet another example of more not being better. I’m sure they are already making a fourth film in the series, but I wish they had stopped at just one.

I'm just a film buff who wants to watch great movies. Where else to find the best, than the list of those nominated by the Academy each year?
