[#2016oscardeathrace]

Well, here we are again. The 2016 Academy Award Nominations. As many of you know, I came across a fun little cinephile idea online several years back called the Oscar Death Race. It’s an enjoyable excursion and test to see how many Oscar nominees you can see before the big night. Below you will find the nominees and links to any reviews I had previously done. Join me on this little adventure by using #2016oscardeathrace and let’s enjoy 2015’s best in film.
