Sad news for you, Oscarites. I had very elaborately and wonderfully planned my schedule so that while I was gone or busy over the next few weeks you would be none the wiser, but alas! I fell far behind, and even though I am a few movies ahead at the moment, I am getting married next Saturday the 24th and it is crunch time. I really cannot find time for much of anything besides work and wedding, which isn’t all together a bad thing. I will be posting two posts over the next few weeks, and after I return from my honeymoon we will see how long it takes me to get back on schedule.
Challenge accepted? I think so.

Hello Oscarites! I’ve decided to do something fun for the month of October! If you are a fan of Halloween and aren’t following me on Twitter, you will be missing out! I am going to be posting a movie a day that you should definitely watch this month! Half of them will be horror/for a more mature audience and the other half will be comedy/family friendly (AKA something I would enjoy).
So check out my Twitter @OscarsDaily! I will also occasionally be posting a recipe or movie-inspired costume ideas! And don’t forget, if you’re looking for more involvement, you can also Like Oscars Daily on Facebook or look me up on Instagram (jamiedaily)!
Happy October everyone!
I just want to let you know that for the next couple weeks I will be transferring all content (150+ posts) from typepad to wordpress. You might find your subscription boxes a little overwhelmed, so I apologize in advance!
A huge THANK YOU to my new subscribers and I am excited to share this journey with you!

This September I will be introducing a new day for posts–Short Movie Mondays! In an attempt to complete the 84th Academy Awards before March 2013, I will be posting only shorts from the 2012 nominations until they are complete, but starting in March I will do it properly and switch between years every Monday.
This is an exciting new change that means you all get to enjoy four posts a week instead of just three! If you want to keep up to date with all things Oscars Daily, make sure you subscribe to our RSS feed, Like our Facebook Page, and Follow on Twitter!
Happy September, movie lovers!
This was originally the first post on my blog. It was posted on Sunday August 12, 2012 at 6:43 pm. Now it will find its new home here, with all of you lovelies on WordPress. Enjoy! ❤
Earlier this year, I decided I needed a new project–one that I could fall in love with. After watching the Academy Awards in February, I realized the answer had been staring me in the face for some time. I was a media communications major in college, focusing on film, and have spent innumerable hours of my life watching movies, both in and out of the classroom. After discovering how few of the academy nominated films I had seen this year, I decided that I should watch all of them… but my curiosity did not stop there. I could blog about the movies from the 84th annual awards, and then next year the 85th… but what about all of the films from years one through eighty-three? How could I understand the history of cinematic brilliance if I didn’t start at the very beginning of the awards? It isn’t enough for me to watch the winners–every single film that is nominated deserves equal attention.
So here we go. Jumping in with two feet. I have been preparing, brainstorming, and trying to smooth out the kinks, but I have decided that at some point there needs to be action. So join me, won’t you?
To start out, I will be watching all the films from the 1st (1929), 50th (1978), and 84th (2012) Academy Awards and will be posting reviews on Fridays, Sundays, and Wednesdays. Make sure to check out my twitter [@jamiedaily] and Like my Facebook page (Facebook.com/jamieDdaily) to stay up to date and interact, and please subscribe to my blog so that you won’t miss any posts!
I’m so excited and I hope you are too!
