The Oscars are one of the biggest nights in Hollywood recognizing the talent you see on the screens and the talent behind the scenes. It’s always nice to see movies, documentaries, etc., relating to the US military nominated for an Oscar.
American Sniper, the film based n Navy SEAL, Chris Kyle, was nominated for Best Picture, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Writing (Adapted Screen Play), Film Editing, and Bradley Cooper was nominated for Best Actor for his portrayal of Chris Kyle. American Sniper took home the Oscar for Sound Editing! I have yet to see American Sniper, although, it’s on my list. My husband is currently reading the book and we plan to see the movie when he’s finished.
Here’s the trailer for American Sniper:
Another military related piece was nominated as well. The documentary Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1 was nominated for Documentary Short Subject and it won! Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1 brings to light the trauma and hardships our veterans go through. I have not seen this one either, but it’s on my list as well.
Here’s the trailer for Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1:
