Warning: it's an unreasonable amount. I started the month already into a goal to watch all Best Picture winners from the 2000s. Then I also decided I had a goal of watching as many of the 62 Oscar nominated movies as I possibly could (having already seen a decent number). Plus I watched other movies. Oh well.

    Fun fact: I ended up getting to see 47 of the 62 nominated movies! I feel like a nerd but also super proud.
    Not proud: I still have 2 more 2000s winners to get to and I didn't finish them in February. But I'll watch them in March!
