CIWT Movie Awards: 'Complete' List --- Day 3/8

Walk: Mindful Body, Trader Joe's
Distance: 2 miles and take yoga class

Having already announced the CIWT Award for Supporting Actress, the time is ripe for the entire CIWT list of personal favorites from the official Academy Awards nominees.

Best Foreign: The Great Beauty   

Best Animated: Frozen               

Supporting Actress: Jennifer Lawrence (See Yesterday or Below)

Supporting Actor:  Jared Leto  

Best Actress: Cate Blanchette 

Best Actor: Matthew McConaughey

Best Director: David O. Russell        

Best Picture, Ta Da...: American Hustle  (sort of fulfills my idea of an Academy Award movie; other movies very good)

These are not Ciwt's predictions, just her favorites from the nominees. There were many deserving actors and movies this year so Ciwt; if others on her favorites list win, she will be happy. (Except for anything 12 Years a Slave - which probably will get some awards.  Ciwt went to it without knowing what she was getting into.  In some ways, great acting not withstanding, something about the unrelenting, crushing, dispiriting experience is still with her. Not in an educational way. If Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leno weren't so good in their categories, CIWT would probably feel guilty not awarding the corresponding 12 Years actors because they were excellent).
