In the middle of 2014, my brand-new boyfriend Noah and I hatched an idea. We'd just met that year, we both liked movies, and we were frustrated at the number of films we'd meant to see but had never made the time to watch. What if, we said, we made the time? A project of going back to the beginning and watching all of the Best Picture winners in order? No skipping a movie no matter how much we hate it, and no watching out of order so we can see the progression of the craft over time?
The Oscar Project was born.
We were married by the end of it.
