Oscar Catch-up and Awards Night

From: Chris T.
Sent on: Thursday, December 27, 2012 10:50 AM
So, being in the middle of Oscar-bait season, and realizing that I've missed a ton of these for one reason or another, I wanted to throw out the idea of an "Oscar Catch-up Meetup Series" (which will most certainly overlap with both "Regular" meetups as well as Dan's "New Release" series).

We could do this as a series of meetups, both in houses/apartments as well as in theaters depending on availability, so we can make "informed" Oscar predictions. Perhaps with an Oscar pool for good measure, and maybe an Oscar night get together (Sunday,[masked]).

We would certainly be willing to host some movie nights at our place for this, though we wouldn't be able to do Oscar night (no cable TV subscription).

The actual movie list I'm sure will depend on which nominees are announced on[masked], as well as availability (I expect that some will be in limbo between theatrical and home release). So, that makes ~7 weeks between nominee announcements and the awards ceremony.

I'm guessing that since best picture nominations can be anywhere from 5-10, and I don't think there's are too many really clear front-runners to keep the number down, we may have our hands full just trying to catch up for Best Picture, *but* if we feel we're properly prepped there, we can always dive into the more esoteric categories like Documentary or Foreign. There may even be screenings of the shorts nominees (Alyssa and I caught a screening of the animated shorts last year in Albany).
