The time is here! The Oscars are a month away and the nominees have been listed. I am happy to say that the “blacklisting” of the Oscars has ended with several high profile films, with black actors and subjects, have broken through. As we did in 2016, I will be making a point of reviewing as many Oscar nominated films as I can in 4 weeks. These reviews tend to be far shorter than my normal “skinny’s”. Quite a few of these are still in Cinemas so there is a good chance they get the full review in my official count. Of the 9 best picture nominees, I have seen 2. Its going to be a busy month! Oscar Sundays will be replacing the “Chillflix” column for this period. Now, lets see the nominees!
