Since you all were happy about the return of "Posterized" last week, we should do it weekly as intended. So herewith, the current Oscar nominated field (links go to reviews or articles of note or Oscar charts). It's 38 movies wide.
HOW MANY HAVE YOU SEEN? And did you see them in anything like chronological order or release?
Beasts of the Southern Wild - June 22nd, 4 noms
(The Earliest and Shortest Best Picture: Picture, Director, Actress, Screenplay)
Ted - June 29th, 1 nom (Original Song)
Searching for Sugar Man - July 27th, 1 nom (Documentary)

the rest are sort of 2013 movies but Oscar has lots of complicated rules involving documentaries and foreign films. These release dates are tentative. Particularly with foreign films they are sometimes never released (especially if they lose the Oscar)
The Gatekeepers - Feb 1st, 1 nom (Documentary)
No - Feb 15th, 1 nom (Foreign)
War Witch - Mar 1st, 1 nom (Foreign Film)
Kon-Tiki - April 19th, 1 nom (Foreign Film)
Do you try to see all of the Oscar nominees each year?
