What are the Oscars?... according to Wikipedia
The Academy Awards, or "Oscars", is an annual American awards ceremony honoring cinematic achievements in the film industry. The various category winners are awarded a copy of a statuette, officially called the Academy Award of Merit, which has become commonly known by its nickname "Oscar". The awards, first presented in 1929 at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, are overseen by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS).
The 2016 Oscar Nominations include many family-friendly movies. I have selected ten to highlight for you today. The 88th Annual Academy Awards telecast will air February 28, 2016, on ABC.
Tons of barn-animal fun in sweet stop-motion adventure.
Poignant hand-drawn story promotes family, environmentalism.
Beautifully animated but slow tale about unique friendship.
Epic Star Wars sequel is all it was expected to be. Action and great performances.
Excellent space thriller mixes peril, charm, real science.
Cold War thriller focuses on tension over action.
Feel-good Rocky-saga drama is a hit for sure.
Poignant immigration drama is romantic, thought-provoking.
