Remember the song, "Bored in the house and I'm in the house bored?" It recently turned one years old as the world marked the first anniversary in quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Throughout this difficult time, we've all found various ways to find comfort and distraction with entertainment. Movies, of course, have played a major role.
It's why we made a weekly movie club for our readers, #r29movieclub, and it's why this year's Oscar nominations look and feel a little different. First of all, they're being announced by real-life couple Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, and they're also honoring many films that premiered in people's living rooms instead of in a bougie premiere with a red carpet.

From powerful biopics (Judas and the Black Messiah), to stories of family (Minari), to telling dark comedies (Promising Young Woman) — in a year where we didn't see many other people, they made us feel seen in cinema.
Let's hope the Academy gets the nominations right this year.
