The Academy Awards are on February 22, 2015. Awards season is one of my favorite times of the year!
For those who don't know, I was raised in a very movie oriented family. A majority of my family worked/works in the film industry. The cameraman that recorded the original MGM lion is my great, great grandpa!
So, as you can imagine, I have been surrounded by movies my whole life! And I'm thankful for it too because I wouldn't be able to keep up with Shawn and his movie knowledge if it wasn't for my family!
Now, back to the Academy Awards. Because of my grandpas job at Universal Studios he is a member of the Academy. The best perk about being an Academy Award member is that he gets a copy of all the movies that could possibly be nominated for an award, including foreign films and shorts. So we get to watch all of the movies that have come out over the past year for free! Another perk is that he can buy tickets to the Oscars if he wants to and he took me in 2013!
To whoever is reading this, thank you for stopping by! I hope that you enjoyed it! Please leave a comment below and let me know if you are a movie lover like me or if you have any suggestions!
