No! Not THAT Oscar!

If you are a movie fan, this is an exciting time of the year! The 81st Annual Academy Awards will be presenting OSCARS this Sunday, March 1. If you want to review the best pictures nominees, this video has all the necessary information you would want. However, the article that follows by the Editor of VOICE is an interesting look at what she calls "THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR".

The Editor of has written a great article with lots of links about the Oscars and some of the movies that are in contention this year. She says that this is her favorite time of the year--the movie award season. I thought you all that love movies as well as books might like to check out her article called "THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR". Also, if you aren't familiar with VOICE and the great authors and this wonderful site, you might want to add it to your favorites! They have a newsletter you can also subscribe to and a blog. It will be well worth your time. I have read and reviewed several of the VOICE novels and am sure you will see many you know when you click on BOOKS or AUTHORS on the site. There are also some great READING GUIDES there! Check out the article here!

Love this video! I can't wait to see who wins! I have a feeling it might be The Curious Case of Benjamin Button but Slum Dog Millionaire seems to be the favorite.

Every time I see one, I think about a reason IT should win....I thought Benjamin was a beautiful movie and the cinematography and story amazing...but Slum Dogs was a unique and based on true story that kept you entranced! Then I just saw Sean Penn as MILK and he was AMAZING...glad I am not having to make the decision! Thanks for stopping by!

What a clever post! This is fun and you could have done a survey but anyway my favorite has to be Benjamin Button as it was a story you could treasure and watch over and over again. Although, you are right about Sean Penn!

Guess we shall see tomorrow night! Thanks all for coming by!

I didn't watch. I think I'm still pouting that Gran Torino wasn't considered for anything.
