This year my wife and I may not get to nearly as many Oscar-nominated movies as normal.

We still have a lot of movies to see by March 4. But we also have the Olympics to watch now! We have 15 movies that are reasonably possible to see in 27 days. But Sandy will be away working for four days. Tonight we plan, ridiculously, to watch both the opening ceremonies and Blade Runner, which is three hours long. Maybe we aren’t sleeping tonight. I’ll tell Katie Beth to sleep in tomorrow.

By order of number of nominations, then importance of nominations, and how to see them without spending a fortune in the movie theater, here’s what we have left:
