Oscars for Mommas: Thank goodness 'Up' is nominated



Mom_up Was just in a conversation on Facebook that somehow wandered into the world of kids movies. My husband and I make no secret that we are huge fans of Phineas and Ferb. We actually watched Bugs Bunny cartoons during one of our first dates. So when I posted a comment wondering if I had seen any of the Oscar-nominated films this year, I thought I had not. But then I remembered that I have seen Up (for Best Picture and Animated Feature Film) and The Princess and the Frog (also Best Animated Feature).

Okay, I need to get out of this rut.

Here's the way to do it but I have to find someone to watch the kids. Over two Saturdays -- Feb. 27 and March 6 (the day before the Oscars), AMC Theatres will show all 10 Best Picture candidates. In the bay area, you can see the films beginning at 10:30 a.m. at Veterans 24, 9302 Anderson Road, Tampa. The popcorn is free and you can have unlimited refills (but I might suggest water instead -- that's a lot of soda). A two-day pass is $50 ($60 online). A one-day pass is $30. Go to the AMC Website for all the details. Here's the schedule:

Feb. 27
10:30 a.m. AVATAR (3D)
1:45 p.m. Up (shown in 2D)*
3:45 p.m. A Serious Man
6:30 p.m. Precious
8:45 p.m. District 9

March 6
10:30 a.m. An Education
12:45 p.m. The Hurt Locker
3:15 p.m. Up in the Air
6 p.m. The Blind Side
8:30 p.m. Inglourious Basterds
