The Oscar Project
There are a few Oscar long shots this week, along with some films that have been submitted for consideration in the Best Animated Feature, Best Documentary Feature, and Best International Film categories.
Let me know what you're seeing this weekend with a comment below.
There are only four Oscar nominees joining Netflix this month, and only two of them actually won an award.
The other bad news is that there are a bunch of Oscar nominees leaving the streaming service this month. Fortunately most are not until the end of the month, so you have a little time to still catch those before they leave.
It's time to let it go once more as Frozen II hits theaters this weekend.
We are also getting the long awaited Mister Rogers film and a new police drama starring Chadwick Boseman.
Be sure to also check out the limited releases for some documentaries that have been submitted for Oscar consideration and a few small releases with some big name stars.
Awards season is really starting to heat up as we move through the middle of November. There are three films hitting wide release this weekend that have a good shot at some Oscar nominations.
You'll also find several films getting their qualifying limited releases for nominations in Best Animated Feature, Best Documentary Feature, and Best International Film this weekend. Check out all the details below.
If you've been reading my posts here for a while, you know that around this time last year, I posted the full list of films that had been submitted for consideration for Best Documentary Feature. Well, the list is back for this year and while not quite as many film as last year, there are still 159 films up for consideration.
Assuming you could get your hands on all 159 films, it would take you nearly 10 days of straight watching them around the clock to complete all of them. But, maybe you only want to watch movies eight hours a day, then it will take you almost a month to watch them all. Of course, you could always wait until December 16th when The Academy will be announcing the short list of 15 films considered for nomination in this category. Even that could take a full day of movie watching, assuming they are readily available.
I am including the entire list in this post. If you want some additional information, you can always hop over to The Academy's official announcement of the list, but they won't give you links to trailers and availability information like you'll find below.
With a spread of big opening films, I doubt that any one will take over the box office this weekend. There is a little something for everyone from horror, to historical drama, to rom-coms, and even a family comedy.
The limited release list has a few gems in it as well, including Christmas stories from Netflix and Disney+ that you will be able to stream on those services later this month.
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?
