The 85th Academy Awards® will air live on Oscar® Sunday, February 24, 2013.

It’s Oscar night and I can’t wait! I’ve seen some, not all of the nominated films and performances. Will you watch?

So, I’m doing a giveaway. All you have to do is comment with ONE movie that you loved this year. It doesn’t have to be an Academy award-nominated film, or your favorite. It can be a movie you hated, but in your comment, say whether you liked it or not and why.

All comments must be up by 7:00pm EST. I’m giving away an Amazon gift card for you to purchase a book or a movie (or whatever).

  1. I saw Gone Girl, read the book, too. Loved the book, the movie was so-so. Haven’t watched the nominated movies, I’m affraid. I’m becoming more and more of a Netflix series fan — can’t wait for House of Cards to come back on.


    1. Hi Silvia – I’m a huge Netflix fan, too (and also can’t wait for House of Cards!). I do enjoy seeing movies on the big screen, but we are careful to go on off times (if possible). No weekends, no evenings. We’re like the senior citizens who show up on Wednesdays! 😀

  2. I’m not sure they count as movies, but the BBC’s Sherlock series with Benedict Cumberbatch are full-length episodes which I’ve really enjoyed. And we’re on a mission to re-watch all the Indiana Jones movies, too: classic fun.
    I haven’t seen Gone Girl because I was disappointed by the ending of the book, but will catch up with it soon I expect.


  3. American Sniper – for the very wise choice to withhold music during two key moments in the story. First, during the roof departure during the sand storm. Second, during the close of the film. The silence was so powerful – in moments when the audience would expect to hear music. Amazing effect from a very wise directorial decision!


  4. thanks for the giveaway. The last movie I saw (on DVD from my library) was this amazing documentary : Art and Craft: how this incredible artist painter reproduced paintings and gave them away to museums. it took them like 30 years to realize they were forgeries. But he didn’t sell the pieces,just gave them away, as a philanthropist. He has some huge mental issues as well. fascinating movie with so many levels to talk about it, about sickness, art, truth, beauty, relationships. Fantastic


  5. Ok I know this is going to go over like a bunch of lead balloons. But I couldn’t stand the movie Frozen. It was like finger nails on a chalkboard. I didn’t like the message it gave to kids. JMHO


    1. Yes, I don’t like crowds. I try to go in the morning during the week days if I go at all. It didn’t go the way I thought it would in some of the categories. It doesn’t influence me in what to watch.


  6. Gone Girl is an excellent classic murder mystery with stellar performances & twists and turns that keep you guessing even after the credits have rolled. There’s a reason we call it classic.


  7. Martha, I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t been to the movie theater in awhile. I do read about the films that have come out and am interested in seeing American Sniper, The Imitation Game, and The Theory of Everything. I’ve read great things about Boyhood and am fascinated by how long they took to film it. I should add this to my to-watch list. I think partly the reason I don’t go to the movie theater is that I don’t hear everything that is said. I wait until I can get the dvd/blu-ray for the captions. To explain, I am severely hearing-impaired and with hearing aids, I do hear up to about 80 percent but still miss some of what is said. I think overall, it would be difficult for me to choose the winning film. I’m guessing American Sniper.


  8. The Lego Movie!
    My Grandson wanted to rent this,I really didn’t know I would like it. But it is such a positive movie for kids . My Grandson just kept sing the song.
    It was refreshing to have a positive movie and it was non stop action! 5 stars!
