And the nominees are…

The Oscars air next Sunday (March 7) at 7PM Central on ABC.  Needless to say, the entertainment world is all a-twitter, and most people seem to think the big duel of the evening will be between James Cameron and Avatar vs Kathryn Bigelow and The Hurt Locker.

The question on everyone’s mind is will this be the first year a female director is honored with one of the highest directing awards?  With the new 10 Best Picture nominees, it’s really anyone game.  With more films to divide the votes, I wouldn’t be surprised if neither of the front runners win.

Over the next week, I plan to see as many of the nominated films as I can get a hold on here in Scotland, but in the mean time, visit and leave a comment with your predictions, preferences, and if you’d like to see any of the films at this year’s series.

Liz received her Bachelors in Media Studies at Pitzer College in Claremont, California before moving to Scotland where she received an M.Litt with Distinction in European Cinema at the University of Glasgow. She is currently in her second year of PhD research on gender, sexuality, and mobility in French and Spanish cinema at the University of Stirling. In May 2009, she developed Stilwell Film (now in its 3rd year), a non-profit which provides free entertainment and diversity through outdoor film screenings to southern Johnson County and northern Miami County, Kansas. In her spare time, she de-stresses by playing rugby, and recently began roller derby. When she was four, her favorite film was The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, this probably explains a lot.
