Go And See An Oscar Nominee In Action

With the countdown to the Oscars well and truly underway, we’ve all seen in the news who is up for one of those golden statuettes to grace their mantelpiece with. But have you seen any of the films that have won the nominations for the 85th Academy Awards?

Of course, there are many films that get an Oscar nomination for some aspect of their production, but this year there are two clear leaders in terms of number of nominations.

Leading the nominations board is Lincoln, a Steven Spielberg epic, which focuses on four months of Lincoln’s Life. The film stars two previous Oscar winners up for another award – Daniel Day Lewis and Sally Field. Both already have two Oscars at home – will they come away with another on 24 February?

Lincoln is also up for Best Picture, as is the film that has the second largest number of nominations for this year’s Oscars – Life of Pi, directed by Ang Lee. Its nominations include one for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Cinematography. This fantasy tale is one where the majority of the action takes place on a lifeboat dinghy containing one human survivor from a shipwreck and a Bengal tiger. It might not be first choice for everyone when going through cinema listings, but the 11 Oscar nominations might convince you to go and see what all the fuss is about.

Other films with fewer nominations, but that are still in with a chance include Silver Linings Playbook, Amour, Zero Dark Thirty and Les Miserables.

Check out your local cinema theatres to see what’s on, at this time of year, many cinema listings Glasgow, Bristol, Solihull and beyond, will include those films that may stand a chance of Oscar glory on 24 February. Make it your business to go and see them so you can draw your own verdict before the Academy Award pronounces the official one!
