The 86th Oscars Have Come and Gone

by Moe - 0 Comment(s)

The 86th Oscars are now in the record books and the awards season winds down for another year. If you were one of the tens of millions (I have always doubted their bloated world wide estimate of one billion viewers) who watched you by now have formulated your own opinions on wins, losses and near misses. I found the ceremony rather boring this year, but they may have been trying to gain back a little dignity after Seth McFarlane last year. Ellen is a fine host and there were some good but no great moments. I thought Glenn Close, Sally Field and Bette Midler very good---John Travolta, Goldie Hawn and Kim Novak scary and without exception all the major's speeches rambling and longgggggg.

Now on to what really matters which is what does CPL have and how can I get my hands on it? Here's a quick tutorial for you that will help you narrow your search in our catalogue.

From our home page go into either Catalogue or Search the Catalgoue and in the All Fields drop down menu choose Subject and then enter a category that you are looking for such as;

Academy Awards Best Actress; Academy Awards Best Supporting Actor; Academy Awards Best Cinematography; Academy Awards Nominations 1964 etc, etc etc. Any film that we carry that meets these search terms will be displayed.

So of course for this year you would look for Academy Award Nominations 2013. This is a dynamic list and changes as new fims are released to DVD and become available. Also the 's' on Award can be something of a moving target, so try it both with and without.
