It looks like the nominations for this year's Academy Awards have been posted. Perhaps 10-20 years ago I would get all excited to see what movies I had seen over the past year were up for awards. Now it has become an opportunity to load up the Netflix queue to see the movies I hadn't seen over the past year. Going to a movie has become the equivalent of flying. Why deal with expensive tickets and screaming babies? I noticed that several documentaries are already available to watch instantly. I also see that Kitty and I have 3 date nights in store during the week of Feb 23 when our local art-house cinema will show nominated short films. I do love those so much.
