Watch as many Academy Award nominated movies from the 1929 awards to the 2019 awards as you can (or want).
The challenge lasts from February 1st to February 28th. (your time)
I will post the results 24 hours after the thread have gone quiet in March, but you do have 72 hours from the deadline to post any last viewings and I will update the final standings. (as long I have had this rule nobody has posted after the 24 hour standings though, so if that continue I will just remove the 72 hour rule after trying with a couple more challenges)
Anything over 40 minutes counts as a feature.
60 minutes worth of shorts counts as one entry
There are no mini-series, as all movies nominated for the awards were nominated as movies. They might have been divided later. So regardless of length, all nominated features are 1 point.
You have to post year, or else I wont count them
To keep the competiton interesting and fair; if you're currently in the top 3, please post at least bi-daily. Or send me a message how long you'll be offline.
If you're entering the top 5 by only posting once the very last day, you will not be counted in the final standings. If you see your scores are high post earlier in the month as well.
What you are seeing are interesting to the other participants. So posting often will also be recommendations to the other particpants to movies they also might want to see.
All features, documentaries and shorts ever nominated by the Academy are eligible for this challenge

There are a few titles through the years that has been pulled from the nominees list through the years.
F.ex. Tuba Atlantic (2010) These are still on the unoffical list above, but please don't see them.
