And so is this blogathon!
IrishJayHawk66) of Outspoken and Freckled, Paula (@Paula_Guthat) of Paula’s Cinema Club and Aurora (@CitizenScreen) of Once Upon a Screen bring you a mammoth blogathon event to coincide with Turner Classic Movie’s (TCM) 31 Days of Oscar …
AND join the blogathon. Share stories about the films and players in Oscar’s distinguished history. Tell us about which films, actors or directors deserved an Oscar nod and were ignored or about which films inspire you with their music or lighting. We are not limiting this event to classic film fare, we want to see and hear it all from the golden man’s more than eighty-five year history – including information and commentaries on this year’s nominees.
WEEK 1 – the weekend of February 1-2 – the topic is Oscar Snubs! Let’s let the venting kick things off!
WEEK 2 – the weekend of February 8-9 – the topics are: Music, Costumes, Cinematography, Writing, etc. You name it, it’s in!
WEEK 3 – the weekend of February 15-16 – Actors! Lead and supporting take center stage!
Week 4 – the weekend of February 22-23 – The Directors!
Week 5 – the weekend of February 28-March 1 – THE MOVIES!
We are taking turns hosting, but you can submit topics either by leaving comments on any of our blogs, via twitter or by email. We ask that you please include the following:
- Title and link to your blog
- contact information
SO – write to your heart’s desire! Write one post or several on each topic. But write! And join us.
In the meantime…
Here’s to Oscar, to TCM and to YOU!
PS – You may want to peruse the entries for last year’s event – it was absolutely fantastic and I’ve no doubt you’ll be duly impressed.

Kellee - are their any links to the entries? I posted on Saturday and don't see anything. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Hi there FlickChick! The list is up now. For this year, we're allowing folks to submit on the weekend & we'll post/announce/promote on that Monday. If I get all my entries in sooner (Sat night or Sunday) I'm happy to post ASAP. Unfortunately, I had my last entry come through this morning. With any luck, I'll post earlier this weekend for week 2! Thanks for joining the fun!Delete
