In two days, it’s the finale of the film awards season. I don’t think I’ve seen many new films this year, not to mention I haven’t had much of a chance to see any films that have won or been nominated at various award ceremonies. Yet the Oscars are only two days away.
One of the films that I did manage to see: The Imitation Game
I loved it. I was initially drawn to the story because being a film about WWII and that being a topic that I’m extremely interested in, it seemed like a no brainer for me. But that aside, I thought the story was beautifully told, one that has only surfaces in the last few decades. The acting and the filmmaking were also breathtaking and I’m interested to see how many awards it takes home. It’s not easy to make the story about the first computer’s creation during a desperate time appealing for the masses, but I think this film has done that.
This is a tough year to be nominated for film awards. There are a lot of good ones (or from what I hear) that came out in 2014 and it’s too bad that there aren’t more awards to go around.
So here’s to those champion films that have even been acknowledged by the masses. Wishing those films that have inspired us, brought us to tears and made us laugh out loud the best during this last competition of the season; bringing home an Oscar.
