I’ve decided to embark on a journey, whereby I watch every Academy Award best picture winner ever.

I know the awards aren’t the pinnacle of film achievement, as shown in articles like this, and, obviously, the #oscarssowhite issue.

So, I’m just as cynical about the Oscars as the next person (no I’m not), but I thought it would be a fun project. I’m a fan of movies, movie history and movie trivia, so I figured watching my way through notable films, doing a bit of research and writing up a blog post would be a good use of my time.

Because I’m not insane, I decided to do this at a rate of one per week, which means it’ll take me nearly two years, since there are currently 87 and there will have been 89 by the time I finish this quest. But I figured it’s a marathon not a race. So I’m hoping to publish a review every Monday until… gosh. Until some time in 2017.

Because I’m a narcissist, I figured I’d blog about it because I’m pretty sure there are tons of people out there who want to read about some woman from Joburg watching a bunch of movies in chronological order.

Join me on my fascinating journey.
