The Academy Awards are arriving in less than two weeks; what are your predictions?

Pulp-less Fiction: Digital Downloads

This blog is about new paperless reading materials like downloadable audio books, ebooks, and online magazines, made available to you through the Appleton Public Library. I plan to provide helpful tips on using these new products, along with reviews of audio books, music on cd, and movies on DVD and Blu-ray. There may even be an occasional post on genealogy.  The library is changing as rapidly as your access to media and the Internet. We want to keep on top of the trends and bring you information and entertainment in a way that fits your life today.   -Diana


The list of nominees can be found at the Oscar site.  They even provide a virtual My Picks ballot, if you choose.  

The ceremony on February 24, 2013, will showcase films which arrived in theaters in 2012.

 

If you’d like to see who won in the past, here are pdf lists of the past winners in four major categories—Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Picture.  The date is the year the film was released; the awards were presented the following year.  The Appleton Public Library owns nearly all of these films on dvd, and some as Blu-ray.  Check the catalog at www.infosoup.org for availability, as some are no longer in print.

 

Good luck on your predictions!
