Oscar Night on Sunday

On Friday night, in Calgary, AB, I’ll be speaking about the Oscars, the movies Oscar overlooked, and taking the road less traveled to a life of rewarding, life-changing, “dangerous” moviegoing.

On Saturday night I’ll be flying home to Seattle.

On Sunday night…

… I plan to write, read, sleep, and ignore the marathon of “Are you kidding me?” moments called the Academy Awards. If there’s anything worth seeing – there probably will be (maybe five minutes?) – I’ll find it on YouTube in the morning.

I posted my Oscar predictions last week.

You can listen to a podcast discussion of the Oscars, featuring Dr. Jeff Keuss, Dr. Chris Chaney, Jennie Spohr, and me, at The Kindlings Muse. 

And you can see my list of favorite films released in the U.S. in 2011 here… or, by contrast, my favorite films that were released in the world in 2011 here.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
