In February 2010, Alyson Krier held her first Oscar statue and subsequently started a foolish cinematic journey to watch every movie that had ever been nominated for Best Picture by the Academy. Her plan was to do it in a year. That’s 470 films (about 9 a week) for 52 weeks. The Best Picture Project was born.
Yes, it’s perfectly fine to be formulating your own journey now. It’s a great idea.
Krier will join us on Reject Radio this Sunday to discuss the usual news bits, review Season of the Witch, do a little property damage, and then settle in to talk about the best movies of all time (and the average movies that sneaked into the pack).
The show airs live Sunday, January 9th at 10pm EST (4am Oslo Time), but you can download it for your listening convenience on the following Monday. It promises to be a perfect primer to Oscar season, and since she’s been knee-deep in those movies, she probably can’t even get near re-capping 2010. You’re welcome.
