This big event joins many stars from the cinema universe to appreciate all the masterpieces they created for our entertainment. It's a wonderful way to acknowledge the work behind the movies, and we could help but discuss it on our pop-culture channel.
This Slogging thread by Sara Pinto, Jack Boreham, Mónica Freitas and Abeer occurred in slogging's official #pop-culture channel, and has been edited for readability.
Are you ready for the Oscars?
"The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the organization behind the Academy Awards, handed best picture nominations to 10 eclectic films on Tuesday — the most since "The King’s Speech" beat out nine rivals to take the Oscar in 2011."
"Three of this year's nominees were distributed by streaming-first studios, and another two were released simultaneously in multiplexes and via the HBO Max. The crop of nominees features only one certifiable blockbuster: "Dune," the sci-fi epic that has grossed nearly $400 million worldwide."
Limarc Ambalina Mónica Freitas Jack Boreham Abeer Allyson Blinkhorn have you seen any of these? Which one was your favorite?
I haven't; I'm not a huge fan of the Oscars. It's just another way for actors to line their pockets.
Sara Pinto I haven't seen any of them :smiling_face_with_tear: but I'm curious about Dune and Don't look up. Maybe I'll use this weekend to catch up with these movies. Have you seen any of them?
Jack Boreham, I can see what you mean. But I think it's also a good way to appreciate all the other people behind these big projects that movies are
Are you planning on watching any of them? I thought Dune might be up your alley haha Jack Boreham
Mónica Freitas, I'm coming a little late, but have you ended up watching any of them?
Sara Pinto no... :smiling_face_with_tear: that's why I need a 3 day weekend
Sara Pinto I haven’t watched any of them but I’ve heard Dune is pretty good. I can’t wait until my schedule clears up and I can go watch a movie again 😵
Sara Pinto you are right. I might watch that one actually 😂
Sara Pinto just watches Don't look up. It's a perfect critique of our society! Check it out!
Abeer Jack Boreham, take it from me, I'm not a big sci-fi fan, and I thought this movie was pretty awesome. Give it a chance and then tell me what you think haha
Mónica Freitas, I meant to start watching it and never had the chance. I'll try it this weekend!
