Can you hear the bells ring!? IT HAS ARRIVED. The wonderful kickoff of the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Golden Globes and soon enough, the Academy Awards. I can’t contain the joy I have because the time has come to make the list of all the movies I have to see in order to be a fully functioning person, and I want to share that joy with you.
The movies that are competing this year are UNBELIEVABLE. As I stated in a previous article, fall movies are the best of its kind, but this year… Oh my God. I’ll only post the movie nominations for now, and discuss TV later since I haven’t been able to catch up on my TV roster.

My biggest excitements:
– Steve Carell for Foxcatcher. I need to see this movie with urgency. I’m not kidding. The trailers for this movie gave me chills and I’m convinced it’s because the entire movie is cringe-worthy.
– Jennifer Aniston for Cake: this is the first movie SAG nomination for her and I’m curious to see how she plays out.
– Julianne Moore for Still Alice: I saw the trailer today and it made me feel feelings and I have a good feeling about her on her way to her 3485739487th Oscar nomination.
– Anything Birdman related.
I saw Boyhood’s trailer recently and I’m looking forward to seeing this movie because I feel it’s going to be very crafty and artsy character-wise. I have the downloaded script but I’ll read it after I see it.
Further reports will come.
Award season has officially begun.
