Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Oscar Slacker Edition

Pop-Culture-608x500I have dropped the damn ball this year when it comes to Oscar prep. Here we are. four days away from the ceremony and I still haven’t seen all the nominees for the major awards let alone some of the more obscure categories. I really have only myself to blame – I started out strong this year and then just ran out of steam, thinking that I had more time than I actually did. For some reason I thought that I had an extra week before the ceremony so I totally squandered my three day weekend last weekend. My inability to properly read a calendar is my apparently undoing.

That being said, I’m still trying to finish strong. I’ve committed to finishing the best picture, best actor/actress, and best supporting actor/actress categories. That means a lot of movie watching but I’m up for the challenge. So while I’m binging movies like crazy, get yourself caught up on all the pop culture that you may have missed with this week’s roundup.
