In case you hadn’t been paying attention, the Academy Awards will air this Sunday night. Often, many people use the last few days before the ceremony to catch up with the Oscar nominated movies they missed. How many of this year’s crop have you seen?
The following poll contains all of the movies nominated for Best Picture, Best Director or any of the four acting categories. If you want to tell us about a movie nominated in some other category, feel free to do so in the Comments section below.
The intent of this poll is not to gauge which movies you think will win the trophies, or which you think should win. We simply want to know how many you’ve seen. Vote for as many as apply.
For me, this is perhaps the least exciting Oscar selection in recent memory. Of this list, I’ve only seen ‘Fury Road’, which, to the consternation of some of our readers, I wasn’t much impressed with.
Unlike most years, I don’t even feel like I’m missing out on much. I have a passing interest in eventually watching ‘Bridge of Spies’, ‘Brooklyn’, ‘Creed’, ‘The Martian’, ‘Room’ and ‘Spotlight’, but not enough to have caught any of them in the theater or to buy them on Blu-ray. I’ll be fine renting or waiting for them to show up on Netflix.
Current awards frontrunner ‘The Revenant’ holds virtually no appeal for me at all.
Am I missing out on something great here? Are you actively rooting for any of these movies to win on Sunday night?
