LAMB Devours The Oscars Best Picture

LAMB Devours The Oscars is here! It was a big success last year so it’s back for 2018! If you’re new or unfamiliar, The LAMB Devours The Oscars will see a LAMB member cover a different award each day (hopefully!) from today until this year’s ceremony on Sunday March 4th. That’s all 23 categories except Best Picture, with each of the NINE picture nominees receiving a dedicated post. You can do a review of the films, general discussion of the nominees, backstory/history on the category itself, give your predictions, etc. Whatever you like. Click here to check out some previous articles. What we end up with (hopefully) is a diverse daily series celebrating Hollywood’s biggest night.

Now that the nominees have been announced it’s time to sign up! There are only 32 spaces available, so if you want to get involved then get in touch quick! Send interested emails to largeassmovieblogs@gmail.com, stating your preferred pick/s. Ideally you should have seen every film in your category, but not necessarily. Also, if there’s a group of you that would like to share a post, that works too, and feel free to be as creative as you like!

Participants are welcome to re-post their articles on their own blogs *after* they have been published on The LAMB, and are encouraged to include a link to the LAMB Devours The Oscars series when they do.
