6 Movies To See Before You Have No Idea What Is Going During Award Season

Award season is in the air, and we are ready to start watching movies! Even though award season is two months away, contenders are racing to promote their movies for the big award. During the winter months, I attend the movies more in the winter than the whole year. Seeing movies in theater gives you the chance to form your own predictions!

Before we start rooting for our favorite people, we need to see them in action. This small list is movies you need to see ASAP before award season begins. These are not listed in any particular order except for the fact you need to see these now! Not all of these films are in theaters but are causing major Oscar buzz.

1. "A Star Is Born"

Okay, don't act surprised by this BOP of a movie. It came out in October, and everyone is still talking about it. This movie has the power to be nominated for the biggest awards of the night. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have the power to take home some MAJOR awards this award season. Also, the soundtrack is award-winning and might have a chance at the Grammys.

2. "Green Book"

Solid reviews from not only the movie but also Vigo Mortensen's and Mahershala Ali's performance. This movie could get them a nomination for "Best Actor" and "Best Supporting Actor" at the Oscars.

3. "Beautiful Boy"

An early Oscar contender in the season but has the potential to get a nomination for Timothee Chalamet and Steve Carrell. This movie takes you through a journey of a man and his son suffering through addiction. Not only a true story but a heartbreaking one as well.

4. "The Favourite" 

A love triangle between a star-studded cast that features Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, and Olivia Coleman. Coleman, who plays Queen Anne, has had high reviews on her performance that could get her a "Best Actress" nomination. Her co-stars Stone and Weisz could grab a "Best Supporting Actress" nomination too.

5. "Destroyer" 

Nicole Kidman goes under a big transformation to play a young cop, Erin Bell, who has to revisit an old case to find inner peace. A gritty drama that is sure to make people take notes for award season.

6. "Can You Ever Forgive Me?"

A different side to Melissa McCarthy we've never seen before. Playing a struggling writer who decides to make a business of forging letters written by dead authors. This is also a true story and McCarthy reportedly does this role justice.

You either grew up in a small town or wish you did. The best memories come from a town with nothing but bars, churches, and cheap beer. Sure, there isn't much to do, but give us a dirt road, and we'll be perfectly content.

There are a few things that only people who grew up in a small town will understand. These songs perfectly sum up small-town life and all the first loves, beer, and memories that come with it.

Before Taylor Swift's transition from a country/pop sweetheart to a crazed vengeful victim, I was a huge fan of hers. I've been listening to her music for as long as I can remember.

Over the years, as an observant T Swift fan, I've noticed her penchant for mentioning ages in her songs. Maybe she does this so she can look back on these songs and remember how old she was when she had these experiences. Or maybe she does it so her fans have another level to relate to her on. For at least my past seven birthdays, I've checked to see if Taylor Swift mentioned my new age in one of her songs.

Signs in Connecticut

As someone studying in Massachusetts, it would be as easy for me to expound on CT-MA relations and stereotypes as it is to talk about the essence of either place. I’ve traveled across the United States from the southernmost point to the Canadian border, from LA to Seattle, and from the East Coast Atlantic to San Francisco to the Pacific Islands. The further away I find myself, the less and less people think about my tiny home state. While Massachusetts residents tend to have a unique familiarity (and likely a few stories and some stereotypes) with Connecticut, the most I heard from anyone in Hawaii is, “Oh, that’s north. So cold! You get the full four seasons there.”

Sports are not easy to play. While they are fun to play, they have their challenges in each sport. But it is well known that some positions are harder to play than others. Not to take away the difficulty of the other positions, but some positions takes more than brawn to be able to compete at that level. It takes intelligence, cleverness, toughness and some improvisation. Note that this list is purely opinionated and is open to debate.
