Get Ready for the Oscars!

By: Caitlin R. (’20)
I don’t know about you, but for the past few weeks I have been desperately trying to find time to watch at least half of the nine nominees for Best Picture, a difficult task considering Crystal’s workload. While I don’t consider myself a movie fanatic, I do always love filling out a ballot for the Oscars and competing with my family to see who can guess the most wins. In past years, I’ve watched zero to one of the movies, and my goal was to have more knowledge about the movies this year. For those like me who don’t have time to watch all nine movies before the Oscars, which are this Sunday the 4th, hopefully this article will help with providing some general info (and some controversies, of course) about the movies up for Best Picture.
