The Complete Oscar Quest

The initial Oscar Quest was me watching six categories: Picture, Director and the four acting categories. Once that was done, I of course said, “I guess I should do the rest of them now.” Because that’s how crazy works, kids. So what I did was set out to watch all the nominees in the Screenplay categories, Cinematography, Editing, Song, Score, the Sound categories, Visual Effects, Production Design, Costumes, Makeup & Hairstyling and Animated Feature. Which would take me from 6 categories to 19 of the total 24.

As I did the first time, I’ve included this page as a reference for myself and those looking to track my progress. It contains a list of every film remaining that I have yet to see. The original list was close to 800 nominees. Currently, we’re approaching 200 (and depending on when you see this, it may even be below that.) My ultimate goal is to essentially have this list finish by the time we hit Memorial Day, which will mean that within a single decade, I’ll have watched essentially every movie ever nominated for an Oscar.
