THE OSCAR PROJECT
The Oscar Project
A quest to watch every Oscar nominated film
This is a bit of a departure from the posts I've been putting up about current Oscar nominees, but I wanted to write about a film I've seen many times.
My family was looking for a movie to watch last night on Netflix and landed on the 1998 film Prince of Egypt starring Val Kilmer and Ralph Fiennes as Moses and Rameses in the story of the Hebrew exodus from Egypt.
The Oscar Perspective
In light of the general topic of this blog, I wanted to take a look at the film from the perspective of the Oscars. Looking up the historical data, I found that Prince of Egypt garnered two nominations (Best Original Song and Best Original Musical or Comedy Score) with the one win coming for the song "When You Believe."
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?
