THE OSCAR PROJECT
The Oscar Project
A quest to watch every Oscar nominated film
Today is the day where the NCAA basketball tournament officially starts with four play-in games. With those games kicking off, it's time to move on to our semi-final match-ups with only four films remaining.
The quarter finals provided some of our closest match-ups to date and two of them came down to a single vote. At the top of the bracket, overall number one seed Toy Story 2 was knocked off by 9th seeded The Incredibles. Meeting The Incredibles in the first semifinal match-up is 4th seeded Inside Out after they knocked off the remaining Cinderella, 21st seeded Cars.
In the other close game, 11th seeded Monsters, Inc. narrowly defeated #3 seed Finding Nemo with one deciding vote. Mike and Sully will face off against #2 seed Toy Story, the only remaining Toy Story film, the only film remaining from the 1990s, and of course the earliest released film out of the remaining contenders.
So we are down to 4 films left and they are some REALLY strong contenders. I would be OK with just about any of these four films winning the entire thing. I also want to look forward to the next bracket we can do like this once we're done with Pixar films. I've had a few thoughts, but want your feedback as well. Before you go vote for the semifinal round, drop a quick comment below with a bracket of films we could explore.
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?
