    "I became a fan of Gary Oldman from Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. He projects a good deal of uncertainty why having the determination to get the job done. Easily the best "movie" James Gordon, and very good in other work as well."

The Academy Awards are colloquially known as the Oscars because Margaret Herrick, the Academy Award librarian in 1931, said that the now iconic statuette reminded her of her Uncle Oscar. Formally called the Academy Award of Merit, the statuette is a knight with a crusader’s sword, standing on a reel of film with five spokes that represent the actors, writers, directors, producers, and technicians. Herrick later said that she found it similar to Oscar, who was actually her cousin, because he was a “Texas farmer of dignity, austerity, and commanding authority.” The Academy made the name official in 1939, and in 2013, the Academy Awards was officially rebranded as The Oscars. From the first Academy Awards in 1929 up to the 90th in 2018, 3,072 Oscars have been awarded for 24 areas of artistic and technical merit. Walt Disney holds the record for most Oscars won by an individual, with 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. Katherine Hepburn is next with four Oscars under her belt, all for Best Actress. Meryl Streep is the most nominated actor, with 21 total nominations and 3 wins. Meanwhile, Leonardo DiCaprio, who was famous for having been eluded by the award for six nominations, finally won his first Oscar in 2016 for his role in the movie The Revenant.

    "Coco is one of those movies that come along that I'll be surprised if it doesn't win. I'm fairly certain it will win something at the Oscars though. The voice acting is phenomenal and the animation is top notch with a great story for kids and adults. This is one of those rare movies that have the potential to make a huge impact and I think it will."
