We always really enjoyed watching TCM when we had cable television hooked up.  Through February 24th, 2010, you can enjoy tons of Academy Award-nominated and winning movies, all presented uncut and commercial free on TCM.  The event started on February 1st, 2010.  The neat things about the schedule of movies is that each movie is linked to the next movie in the lineup through a shared actor or actress.

The final movie in the festival, Diner (1982), starring Kevin Bacon, will bring the entire month full circle to the opening movie, which was “Only When I Laugh.”  Only When I Laugh started the festival and starred Kevin Bacon and James Coco.

TCM host Robert Osborne, who is also the official biographer of the Academy Awards and the Academy’s red carpet greeter, will host 31 DAYS OF OSCAR, which will mark its 16th year on Turner Classic Movies. The 2010 edition will feature 22 films making their debut on TCM, including Gladiator (2000), Titanic (1997), Mrs. Brown (1997), A Room with a View (1985), Trading Places (1983), Frances (1982), Only When I Laugh (1981), Alien (1979), Julia (1977), Serpico (1973), Lady Sings the Blues (1972), Thoroughly Modern Millie (1967), An American Dream (1966), Morituri (1965), Summertime (1955), Call Me Madam (1953), The Snake Pit (1948), Moonrise (1948), Kiss of Death (1947), Kitty (1945), Alexander’s Ragtime Band (1938) and One Hour with You(1932). A complete schedule of 31 DAY S OF OSCAR is attached.

The Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2009 will be presented live on Sunday, March 7, 2010, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center®and televised live by the ABC Television Network. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 200 countries worldwide.

    I feel so stupid! I’ve been sad because I didn’t think we had this channel so I was going to miss out, but I just say a commercial advertising this on TNT….LOL
    Wow. At least I don’t have to be sad anymore!

    Thanks for publishing this. I need to watch some more movies for my “101 Things in 1,001 Days” project. I’m trying to watch 29 of the top 100 AFI greatest movies that I haven’t seen. I still have 28 left. I should be able to record 6 that are on later this month.
