Every year I make the mad dash to see as many Oscar nominated films as I can. I love all of the excitement leading up to the big night. January and February are filled with a glut of amazing performances to watch. Like many people, I pick my favorites, but also try to predict the Academy’s choices. The 84th Academy Awards will air tonight, so we thought we would celebrate with some Oscar trivia. See how many you can answer without looking them up online!
