Tonight is the Oscars and I did not get a chance to see a lot of movies in 2011. But of course one movie that I had to see was Moneyball. As some of you know, I am an A’s fan and I have read the book. The movie was something I could not miss and I saw it four times in the theaters.
The movie is up for awards in six categories tonight.
- Best Picture
- Best Actor (Brad Pitt)
- Best Supporting Actor (Jonah Hill)
- Best Adapted Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaillian)
- Film Editing (Christopher Tellefsen)
- Sound Mixing (Deb Adair, Ron Bochar, David Giammarco, and Ed Novick).
I really think Hill’s performance in the movie was really superb and he is deserving of the award. The adapted screenplay also was done well and that might be another category the movie might take. It’s the only nominated movie for that award that was actually based on a non-fiction book.
I doubt I will watch the awards show tonight but I am at least hoping that this movie gets at least one award.
