Well, the 80th Academy Award nominations are out.  So happy that " Lady Bird" got five nods!   Here's the link to all of the nominations. 

The 1st Academy Awards started in 1928 and honored the films of 1927.  It was held at a small private dinner party in Los Angeles, with the ceremony only lasting 15 minutes.  How things have changed.  Now the broadcast gets around 33 million viewers, and getting winners off the stage often takes fifteen minutes :)

Here are trailers for three of my favorites besides "Lady Bird", since I gabbed about that film yesterday...
