The Nerds welcome Oscar Challenge Winner Richard New to talk about his Oscar picks, then everyone joins in a series of interconnected and irreverent tangents.
Happy Oscar Season!
As we’ve done in past years at Nerdonomy, we’re hosting a challenge to prepare our movie-loving followers for the 88th Academy Awards. This year, however, we must warn you, the challenge is steeper than it’s been in the past. While usually the Oscar Challenge can be completed in watching 17-19 films, this year the challenge requires a MINIMUM of 20 films to be seen, and as many as 25 if you’re really pushing yourself. So get ready to do some sitting.
As the year winds down to a close, for most movie fans like me, this is the most thrilling time of the year. 2013 has been, at the very least, a very entertaining year with some critical and crowd-pleasing gems, some with controversy and some with a lack of fanfare/box-office bombs. Looking ahead on what’s to come, Here’s my list of twelve Fall/Winter 2013 films that I am most excited to see, starting with the month of October. The reason for the number twelve is because I tried to narrow down to ten, which I couldn’t, and then I tried to narrow the list down to fifteen and being the overachiever I am, I kept it short with twelve. I will include brief synopses and poster for each film, courtesy of imdb.com.
