247 Ain't Bad --- Day 8/325

Walk: No, Home Recovery Mode continues
Distance: Yoga

So a friend sent Ciwt a Washington Post article* about the Oscar nominees and winners since 1976.
That's about 275 movies altogether.

Ciwt, who prides herself on being a bit of a buff,  was chagrinned to come face to face with the fact that she hasn't seen (or doesn't remember seeing) 28!? of those.  But then her same friend turned Ciwt's reaction on its head:  Seeing 247 nominees out of 275 is 'just amazing!'  She's right, and she's seen even more than Ciwt.

Okay, here is Ciwt's Unseen Nominees in the Past 44 Years List:


Bound for Glory
Braveheart (?)
Driving Miss Daisy
Ghost
Heaven Can Wait
In the Name of the Father (? not sure)
Inception
Les Miserables
Letters From Iwo Jima
Mad Max: Fury Road
Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World
Norma Rae
Saving Private Ryan
Sideways
Tender Mercies
Tess
The Color Purple
The Elephant Man
The Full Monty
The Help
The Kids Are All Right

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
