    As many of you already know, the biggest movie awards season of the year is kicking into full gear this month.  The big night is less than a month away and will be attracting viewers from all over the world on March 2nd.  If you are like me, you enjoy watching all of the films and actors who are up for awards way before the big night so that you can choose your favorites in advance.  With Movies on Demand, you can catch up on this year’s nominees right in the comfort of your own home on cable.

    Movies on Demand is featuring many Awards Season favorites which allows you to be the judge and decide which nominees deserve to walk away with the coveted awards this year.  I always get excited when my predictions come true and all of my picks get acknowledged and given that statue.  Who knows, I just might have a future as a film critic if I ever decide to walk away from my teaching and blogging gigs!

  1. I love the awards, I have never seen anything with the contenders, the nominees prior to the awards, I just may have to do that! Thanks!

  2. I rarely turn on the TV anymore–I generally have my nose in a book! Maybe this year I will remember to watch the awards ceremony–Some of those movies do sound intriguing.

  3. Kay Adeola says

    I only manage to watch tv some nights never get time really which is a shame.

  4. I have only seen 2 of the movies on that list – and they were both kids movies. I don’t have time to watch movies. A two hour commitment is a big deal for me LOL.

  5. I know that 12 years a slave and American Hustle are great movies.

  6. I’d like to see Jared Leto win for Best Supporting Actor. I had such a crush on him when I was a teenager. I haven’t seen all the nominated films yet, just Captain Phillips.

  7. Janet Watson says

    Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips will be who I’m rooting for! This movie deserves so many awards!

    Mr McConaughey please!
    I am a fan of your plan curling up at home. And truth be told I have a lot if movie catching up to do

  11. Yay with Despicable Me – they deserve it!

  12. I would enjoy Movies on Demand. I use my PVR so often to watch all my saved favorite shows as I can never watch it when it is live. Its good to know that, I can watch movies whenever I have some free time 🙂

  13. Teresa McCluskey says

    As much as I would enjoy movies on demand, I just cant afford it so I use Netflix. But I am sending my mother this way because she has cable!

  14. I’ve only seen one movie on the list, and heard of two others, so I can’t really judge lol.

  15. Michele Butcher says

    The Croods, Despicable Me 2, and Star Trek were really good in my opinion. I have not seen the others though.

  16. My favorite would be Despicable Me 2. Such a funny and cute story!

  17. I like Jennifer Lawrence who won a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for American Hustle

  18. nathanwpace says

    I’ve seen a few of those movies, and a couple of them 100 plus times it seems (gotta love kids) I don’t watch much TV….

  19. I have not seen any of those movies yet. But I want to watch The Croods with my boys

  20. I really enjoyed watching Dispicable Me2 with my kiddos. There are so many great movies out there as well as actors and directors. I really like Zoe Saldana.

  21. Amberlee Cave says

    Sounds great! I love being able to watch the movies before the awards! I will have to check them out!

  22. Lawna Young says

    I honestly had no clue that A Star Trek movie was made until I received it in the mail. I will have to watch it now that I know they have such great visuals.

  23. I am a fan of Sandra Bullock, hoping both Gravity and she get the Academy Awards this year.

  24. JadeLouise Designs says

    I like the flexibility of Cable on Demand. I love those movies you listed. Seriously some great ones like Star Trek and Despicable me 2!

  25. There are some great movies listed there. We don’t do Cable on demand, but maybe we should

  26. Terry My Journey With Candida says

    We do have cable but I don’t watch many movies. Not sure why because I like them, it just seems I don’t have time.

  27. Thomas Gibson says

    There is a movie that will be coming out in March with Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly titled, Noah. It sure looks like it will be a top notch film for 2014 that I expect to win all kind of awards.

  28. Brittney House says

    I really hope that 12 years a slave wins big because it was a moving film beyond words.

  29. Fabulous Perks says

    I love watching movies on demand so many great perks. I enjoyed watching Despicable Me 2. The only one i’ve seen on this list.

  30. I love movies on demand. We watch them all the time!

  31. I don’t usually watch movies, but I thought The Croods was really cute. I wasn’t as impressed with Lone Ranger as I had hoped to be.

  32. I have such a love for movies – I love sitting down and taking one in I have a bit of a soft sport for Despicable Me 2

  33. AmandaSakovitz says

    I really like Prisoners and The Act of Killing. Great films.

  34. I would have to vote for the Despicable Me movie! I just loved it. We watch a family movie every Saturday night and sometimes more!

  35. Jennifer Williams says

    My boys watch MOD all the time, I never get the remote or I probably would watch a few as well. It is so nice to not have to return movies.

  36. i have not seen 12 years a slave and wolf of wall street and i really want to see both movies and love dicaprio.

  37. Emilie Proctor says

    The Croods was really awesome and Despicable Me 2 was really funny! I have only been watching kid movies lol.

  38. Julie Toth says

    One of my favorite actors is Joaquin Phoenix. I really want to see Her, which was nominated for some awards.

  39. I was a big fan of “American Hustle” and the performances of Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, but my favorite film that’s winning awards has got to be “!2 Years a Slave” – what a powerful, heartwrenching movie!

    I actually enjoy going out to the movies. I do that with my kids all the time. I have watched a few of those featured

  49. I am always happy to see Jennifer Lawrence win! And I think everybody involved in *Twelve Years a Slave* deserves recognition.

  50. i really wanna see Dallas Buyers Club. looks good

  51. We love using our On Demand feature on our tv! The kids like to watch certain shows on their time.. not when they are actually scheduled. Its also great to watch a movie or 2 when we have time!

  52. Amanda Love says

    I couldn’t begin to say what my favorite movies for the year were. I don’t think I watched that much movies last year. Hopefully this year is different. I also don’t do much on demand either.

  53. I don’t have a favorite of the year but I do need to catch up on some movies… TY for the reminder as I always forget about MOD.


  54. Michelle M Weaver says

    I think the Hunger Games deserves an award. Those movies are great and go along really well with the books I think.

  55. I like 12 Yeas a Slave because this movie is pretty powerful. I hope it wins the awards

  56. Laurajj Jacobson says

    I would love to see Tom Hanks for Captain Phillips! This is one movie I cannot wait to see! I think Tom Hanks always puts so much into each film he does and is just an incredible actor!

  57. Rebecca Williams Parsons says

    Dallas Buyers Club looks like a great movie. I love Matthew McConaughey he is such a great actor!

  58. I really think that Mathew McConaughey should win for best actor. He so deserves it, great acting.

  59. Meagan Bailiff says

    i saw 12 years a slave and it definitely deserved the awards its already won, I’m sure it will win more.

    I read the book and loved Wolf of Wall Street with Leo! I am so happy that has been nominated so many times because it was such a great movie!

  68. Well, I personally loved the movie Last Vegas with Morgan Freeman and Michael Douglas. It was hilarious and I think more awards should be given for movies that make you laugh and feel good.

  69. I think that Jared Leto
    and Matthew McConaughey should win for Dallas Buyers Club because they are great actors and had to lose a lot of weight for that part.

  80. I really liked Star Trek Into Darkness. I’m not much of a Star Trek fan, but I really enjoyed the movie!

  81. I’ve seen Prisoners and loved Jake Gyllenhall (spelling?) it it. He’s come a long way and gets better as he gets older Rosanne

  82. Richard Morris says

    I have to go with Gravity and Captain Phillips. I thought the acting jobs in both those movies were amazing. Especially with Gravity. They had to make the move with the power of their acting and without a lot of other support.

  84. I entered the $100 Walgreens Gift Card giveaway
