Awards Daily

Discovered the website many years ago. It has been the best place to go to learn about notable upcoming films. The founder and editor Sasha Stone now partners with editor Ryan Adams. The website gives readers early glimpses of films that are sure to be impactful, not only at the box office, but for the culture at large. The original website name was Oscarwatch (until the name proved to be in conflict with the Academy). It started as a place to watch for the best, upcoming, Oscar worthy films. Now, it has grown into a world for all things film. And they still track the best films of the year. Informative, passion-filled, and entertaining.

Here is a list they have so far for Best Picture of 2012:

Beasts of the Southern Wild 
Moonrise Kingdom
The Dark Knight Rises
The Avengers

Their tag line is a quote from All The President’s Men: “The Trick is Not Minding”

Bob Woodward: Gordon Liddy was fired by Mitchell because he wouldn’t talk to the F.B.I.
Deep Throat: You’ll hear more.
Bob Woodward: Will he talk?
Deep Throat: I was at a party once, and, uh, Liddy put his hand over a candle, and he kept it there. He kept it right in the flame until his flesh was burned. Somebody said, “What’s the trick?” And Liddy said, “The trick is not minding.”

  1. Will watch for these upcoming films. Am reading “The Perks of Being a Wildflower” because of your earlier post. Enjoying it too, just like you said.
