February 2012: Award Season

Well, I can’t say I spent most of my month watching the nominees this year because I’d already seen a large chunk of them, but I did make some pretty great progress on them! Sadly, I ended up with only twelve out of sixty-one nominees left to watch before the Oscars. But I have to admit, I’m impressed with myself for even watching 49 movies just for an award show. In case you’re interested in what movies I’ve already seen, you can check out my JANUARY 2012 post. So here’s my list for February — same format as last time!
