My Awards Season Short List

George Clooney and Vera Farmiga in Up in the Air.

Count it — I have actually now seen Up in the Air three times in the theater. All before 2010 even hit. It was unintentional, really. I just happened to hang with people that all really had their hearts set on seeing the film. It’s a good one, so who am I to deprive them of that experience? The truth is, each time I watched it, I loved it more and more. Sure, George Clooney is easy on the eyes, but Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick are the film’s scene-stealers.

But now, it’s the New Year. I have to stop dilly-dallying and play catch up on all the other films I have yet to see. After all, awards season is upon us and there are quite a few films with Oscar potential! Next on my list? Avatar, An Education, It’s Complicated, Nine and The Blind Side. Yeah, it’s a lot, but I think I can do it. Any other recommendations? Send ’em my way!
