grand plans indeed


I was catching up on my favorite blogs the other day, and was pleased as punch to find that the Bigenerian Librarian has the same goal as me--to watch every singles movie that has ever won the Oscar for Best Pictue of the Year. So, I copied and pasted the below list from her and am beginning to chart my progress. I actually was able to check another winner off last night--The Godfather. I know, I know, save the audible gasps...I just never watched them, but got the trilogy for a grad present when best friend L heard that I had never seen them and nearly had an anneurism!
