31 Days of Oscar Blogathon

The envelope please…


The winners, the losers, the snubs, the back stories, the gossip, the players, the games…this time it’s all about Oscar!

We’re back! Aurora (@CitizenScreen) of Once Upon a Screen, Paula (@Paula_Guthat) of Paula’s Cinema Club and I aka Kellee (@IrishJayhawk66) of Outspoken and Freckled are hosting a new, mammoth blogathon event that coincides with Turner Classic Movies’ 31 Days of Oscar, February 1 to March 3, 2013. It’ll be a month filled with fabulous tales and screen wonders.

But this one is not just for classic film fare; we want to see and hear it all from the golden man’s more than eighty-year history, up to and including this year’s nominees. And you don’t have to stick to just Best Picture or acting winners. Posts about nominees or winners in all the other categories…Original Screenplay, Costume Design, Cinematography, etc….are more than welcome.

The details:
Let us know what you’ll be writing about by email [prattkellee[at]gmail.com] or leave us a comment.
Submit links to as many posts as you would like by email or by comments in time for any of the following due dates throughout the month. Submissions should include as much information about you as possible: First name, Twitter username, link(s) to your site(s) and email address.

January 31
February 7
February 14
February 21
February 28

We’ll promote entries for an entire week after each due date. If you have a preferred promotion date, please make a note of that as well. However, we welcome all submissions by any of the dates specified.

This is the banner our lovely co-host Paula created for the blogathon. We encourage you display it on your site to help promote this event and cannot wait to hear from you. See you on the red carpet!!
