Here is the official Academy Award 2011 Ballot!
So go ahead, print it off, and keep track of who wins February 27th at the 83rd Academy Awards! I will definitely keep writing about the nominated movies I see and keep you posted on my predictions for Oscar night. Since I have seen the majority of the multi-nominated films (and I'm sure you have too), check back here for the ones you normally wouldn't find out about. And maybe you'll learn a thing or two about those categories that you never understood ("What the hell is the difference between sound editing and sound mixing?")
Enjoy your countdown to the Oscars!!

It's almost time for me to say "Oscar season has begun!" Tomorrow morning the official noms will be announced at 8:30 eastern time by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Tom Sherak and Monique (winner of last year's Best Supporting Actress award for Precious). I will definitely be up this year in time for the live announcement. Even though I have seen most of the films that will most likely be nominated, I still am curious to see the unexpected additions and the foreign film nominees. Left on my list of movies to see are: Blue Valentine (this Friday!), Rabbit Hole, Another Year; and in the foreign category: I Am Love, Biutiful, The Illusionist and The Concert.
Each year I do more and more to prepare for the Oscars, and this year I took it even farther by making my Pre-nomination Ballot. No, it's not complete, but it includes all the categories I am most sure of.
