    One of my favorite aspects of Oscar season begins soon! TCM’s “31 Days of Oscar” marathon begins on Sunday, February 1st, 2015, starting at 6:00 AM ET with “The Old Man & the Sea” (1958). The series concludes on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 @ 2:45 AM ET with “The Queen” (2006).

    The theme this year is “Genres,” which is how the films are separated by days. I preferred last year’s method of highlighting separate categories, like a whole night of Lead Actress nominees, for example, which was very informative in watching some more obscure nominees I’d never had the chance to see before, such as Katharine Hepburn in “Morning Glory” (1933), Ingrid Bergman in “Anastasia” (1956), and Sophia Loren in “Two Women” (1960).

    Here is the PDF schedule link:

    Set your DVRs accordingly! What are you watching in this marathon that you either haven’t seen before or are dying to see again?

    It looks like genres are during the days, and years (or year clusters) are how they’re organized at night.

    I don’t remember them ever going as late as 2011, but they are this year with THE ARTIST (as well as the entire LOTR trilogy, back-to-back).  The schedule that shows up on my DVR also tells what nominated shorts they shoehorn in between features, which are usually fun (and otherwise often difficult to find).

    I’m assuming this schedule is EST?

    I am looking forward to seeing “The Emigrants” again….it has been awhile.  Liv Ullmann is soooo good in it.   I wonder how close to Oscar voting was the year she was nominated for it along with Cicely Tyson (Sounder), Maggie Smith (Travels with my Aunt), Diana Ross (Lady Sings the Blues) and winner Liza Minnelli (Cabaret).   My thoughts:  Minnelli, Ross, Ullmann, Tyson, Smith

    I really want this one in my collection. I havent seen it for ages, but I remember certain scenes vividly; such a great film and perf(s).

    Cant guess at who might have been second, but I’d rank them:

    Tyson/Ullman tie

    Minnelli

    Smith

    Ross

    Now that I know What Ever Happened to Baby Jane is on, I may make a point to catch it or DVR it.  While it is a camp classic and highly enjoyable film overall, I cannot help but feel it does not get the credit it deserves.  People seem to forget how genuinely scary and horrifying a movie this was.  I actually consider it much scarier than most of the crap scary/horror films that have come out over the past 10 years or so.  Truly a great film and one I look forward to seeing again, most likely on Feb. 13 this month.

    The Emigrants is rare to find, and I don’t believe it ever had a dvd release.  There are videotaped copies of it but they are extremely rare and therefore expensive…..like the movie “Hawaii” which I am looking for.

    The George Roy Hill version? Fabulous! I havent thought about this film for quite some time. Good luck. Please let us know if you can find a copy.
