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.

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.
