We kick off our month of Oscar coverage by talking about Leo’s Losing Streak, while also addressing plenty of other Academy misses.
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.
On our January 11th blog post, I posed a challenge to our readers and listeners to see 18 of the Oscar nominated films (check out the post to see the details and prizes!).
It seems this year, the Challenge has proven to be rather daunting. I myself have a mere 7 films to go prior to the big day. I was ahead of my pace, and then I skipped a week. So now I need to see 3 films this week to catch up. Thankfully, I will have plenty of time to sit and relax and watch movies because as you are reading this, I am having my wisdom teeth extracted.
It’s that time again, fellow Nerds!

Last year, we had an Oscar Challenge that proved impossible to complete. This year, after careful consideration, we have revamped the Oscar Challenge to ensure that it is able to be finished by Oscar Night, and also nerdier than ever! So here we go:
