Oscars

Leave a comment

In honor of the Oscars, which I believe are on this Sunday, I decided to fill out my very own “Oscar Pool 2014 Ballot”  I feel as though I have seen a decent amount of the movies that were fortunate enough to receive nominations in order to at least try to complete the ballot.  Plus it seems fun, so why not?  I decided to star the movies that I have seen and place a waved line next to categories that I haven’t seen anything nominated just to inform readers.

I think the best way to do the ballot would be to post a picture of what it looks like and then list my “winners,” who will be determined Sunday, at the bottom of this post. Here goes nothing.
