I watched a lot of movies this week. I finally feel like I’m ready for the Oscar nominations to be announced on February 8th. Ideally, I would have had all this done before the first week of February but we don’t live in an ideal world and you know what? I’ve seen a lot of really good movies over the past two weeks. This has been a fun two weeks, even if I was very aware that I was quickly running out of time to see everything that I wanted to see.
Anyway, Oscar nominees on Tuesday! I can hardly wait! And then the Super Bowl on Sunday, which is usually one of our busiest days at the site as we try to keep up with the movie previews and all of the other commercials. I can’t wait!
