I caught the Oscar Announcement and usual most the movies got left out of the cold. I was hoping that "The Hunger Games" at least get only one nomination for anything. "The Avengers" gpot only one nomination. they're lucky they got that. I'd rather see "Dr. Seuess' the Lorax" get an Oscar nomination for Best Animination Movie rather than "The Pirates:A Band of Misfits." As of right now I saw seven of the nine Oscar nominated moves for Best Picture. I'll see "Zero Dark thirty" sometime this week. I'm still waiting on "Amour." I don't know whatever or not that movie will come to Kalamazoo. I'm gong to watch The Academy Awards on Feb. 24th. That is also my birthday.
