The Walt Disney Studios’ celebrates 17 Oscar Nominations!!

If you are an Oscarphile like me, then you already know who was nominated for an Oscar this year. I made sure I was in front of the TV today at 8:30am to watch Emma Stone (who I love) and Seth MacFarlane announce the winners!

I was so super duper excited that Lincoln was nominated as Best Picture because I want that to win. And thrilled that Daniel Day Lewis, Sally Field (one of my favorite actresses) and Tommy Lee Jones were all nominated in the actor categories. Also, I love love love Steven Spielberg so I was excited he might get that Oscar this year.

I will be watching the 85th Academy Awards on ABC on Sunday, February 24. I never miss the Oscars and when I lived in LA, went to sit in the bleachers once year. Yeah, a little crazy but fun.
