My Picks for the 88th Academy Awards

Oscar season and the actual ceremony itself are like the NFL playoffs and the Super Bowl for movie people.

I may not have always known it, but I always wanted to be a filmmaker. Ten-year-old me commandeered my dad’s VHS camcorder to shoot my own Brittney Spears music videos (I only liked her for her looks), GI Joe adventure shorts (a la Robot Chicken), and a documentary welcoming newcomers to my secret fort (I’m […]
