The Academy Has Spoken

Today is a very exciting day! 

For today marks the beginning of a very special month... 
a month where books and writing are replaced with films. 

Today is the start of 
The Academy Awards Month here at Imaginative Adventure. 

It is a month where I will cover all you need to know about 
The Academy Awards Show--

The difference between sound editing and sound mixing...



 I will also discuss when BOOKS become MOVIES. 
Highlighting some of our favorite YA books that are on the path to the big screen.
Because, this is a book blog after all!

  1. Can I still fill out a ballot? Even though I live in a foreign country and have seen exactly 0 of the nominated films??

  2. I love the Oscars. I watch all of the major awards shows and love to see the fashion and because I also love film. I'm rooting for The Help big time and would love to see Brad Pitt win his first Oscar.
