THE OSCAR PROJECT
The Oscar Project
A quest to watch every Oscar nominated film
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.
There are a bunch of great documentaries and series coming to Disney+ that from from the National Geographic Channel. However, despite all that great content, only one item from this group has been nominated for an Oscar.
Free Solo (2018) - The great thing about this one nominee is that it is a winner and a recent winner at that.
This film won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature earlier this year at the Academy Awards. The film traces the quest by veteran mountain climber Alex Honnold as he attempted to free climb the famous El Capitan in Yosemite National Park.
Happy Friday and thank you for coming back for the latest in Oscar Nomination predictions. Today I am looking at several special categories of feature films: Best Foreign Language Film, Best Animated Feature Film, and Best Documentary Feature Film.
Again, if you missed any of the previous posts, please check them out. So far I've posted on:
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?
