So my 2012 Oscar trilogy is complete, been some massive changes from when I did this at the start of the year to now. Expect to see my guesses on what will be nominated at the 2013 Academy Awards after this years ceremony.
P.S. Yes I will be doing some top 10s for films in 2011 but right now I am in the middle of my A Level exams so I will only be posting these lists after the 20th at the earliest. To make up for it though I will tell you what I will be covering; my favourite films, performances and scenes from 2011 as well as my most anticipated films for the rest of 2012. See you all when these lists come about.
