TCM Presents 31 Days of Oscar!!


The Oscars are just around the corner and during the month of February Turner Classic Movies has been building the momentum while honouring the best of the best in movie history! I know I got a late jump on this excitement but I could not resist joining in!

I am a Classic movie lover! My husband thinks I'm a classic movie buff guru but I know better than to claim such expertise. I am a TCM addict and honestly I am still continually confronted with how little I know about movie history and how many fabulous classic movies I have yet to see. TCM's 31 Days of Oscar is a perfect way to catch notable movies both beloved and well-known, or perhaps--at least to you personally--more obscure and dusty on forgotten shelves!
TCM's 31 Days of Oscar month long tribute could be coined a classic in itself, now in its 16th year hosted by the great Robert Osbourne--true movie guru! Robert Osborne is the official biographer of the Academy Awards and the Academy’s red carpet greeter.

22 films make their debut on TCM this February including:
Gladiator (2000), Titanic (1997), Mrs. Brown (1997), A Room with a View (1985), Trading Places (1983), Frances (1982), Only When I Laugh (1981), Alien (1979), Julia (1977), Serpico (1973),Lady Sings the Blues (1972), Thoroughly Modern Millie (1967), An American Dream (1966), Morituri (1965), Summertime(1955), Call Me Madam (1953), The Snake Pit (1948), Moonrise (1948), Kiss of Death (1947), Kitty (1945), Alexander’s Ragtime Band (1938) and One Hour with You (1932).

I started to compile a list of my favourites on this years 31 Days of Oscars roster but realized it would span the length of this web page and beyond! I will spare you the horrendously long list and just name a few:

Mildred Pierce, Inherit the Wind, Little Women {there are two versions in this line up}, Waterloo Bridge {I have always admired Vivian Leigh's beauty}, Wuthering Heights and Of Mice and Men {both based on novels I adore}, the light and romantic Roman Holiday and the heavy and dramatic Nun's Story {Audrey Hepburn another actress I've admired for years with whom I share a birth date}, Humphrey Bogart's Maltese Falcon, Casablanca and of course the later African Queen, I must admit a crush on James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause but also Giant...as I warned my list goes on and on!

Just have a look at the schedule for yourself to find your favourites!


There are still 7 days left of fabulous movies. Whether you are already a huge fan of classic movies and movies of the recent past or are just discovering this world of amazing story telling TCM's 31 Days of Oscar presents the history of film at its best.
And to enhance your 2010 Oscar experience further TCM would like to offer one Northern Mama reader an Oscar Party Pack which includes everything you need to make Oscar night a night to remember!
