To be honest, when this movie got an Oscar nod, I stared at the poster for a long time trying to figure it out. I had no idea what I was in for when I decided to watch and review Oscar-nominated films from the 8 biggest categories. Whatever notion I had in mind about this movie, it definitely wasn’t this!
As a child, I always thought that the Oscars were awards given to the most boring films of the year. None of the Oscar-winning or even the nominated films were worth watching for entertainment, I felt. They are all so serious and unfunny all the time. The last thing any child needs in their life is a lack of fun.
