SPECIAL: Oscar Nominations

I have used this blog exclusively for writing one piece a day, every single day for the past few months. Writing is what I do.

But my formation and my love reside in the world of cinema. I studied to be a screenwriter and that’s what I am, first and foremost.

So today I embrace a yearly tradition I have of predicting the nominees for the Academy Awards, as I’ve done for many years. Hope you like movies too and let’s see how I do tomorrow morning.

Nominations will be announced tomorrow at 5:30 AM (LA time). Let me know what you think of my predictions. Which movies did you like most in 2014?
