Countdown to the 77th Annual Academy Awards

77th Annual Academy Awards

From the desk of the Arts Editor…

Being a native L.A. girl, the Oscars used to be a big deal. I will admit, until I came to Miills, I dressed up in my evening gown and went to an Oscars party every year. The truth? I really did it because I never turn down an opportunity to get dressed up and drink expensive champagne (on someone else’s dime) and every once in a while, a movie that I actually felt should win…won! My favorites this year? I can’t really say, I only saw the animated films listed below in the Other Notable Nominations section. Take a break from school work and watch the Oscars on Sunday, February 27th!
