View all the Best Picture nominees

On Saturday, I will not be blogging too much. Why? I will be at the movie for - wait for it - 14 HOURS! Yes, tomorrow, as I've done in the past, will be devoted to seeing all five Best Picture nominees - “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” (Paramount and Warner Bros.), “Frost/Nixon” (Universal), “Milk” (Focus Features), “The Reader” (The Weinstein Company) and “Slumdog Millionaire” (Fox Searchlight).

AMC Theatres offers this quite amazing opportunity to see all the nominees back-to-back in a special package. It's $30 - or $25 for rewards members - and includes all five movies, large popcorn, unlimited pop and a cool collectible pass so you can leave the theater between showings and walk around. Here is the schedule:
# Milk 10:30 a.m.
# The Reader 1:05 p.m.
# The Curious Case of Benjamin Button 3:45 p.m.
# Slumdog Millionaire 7:15 p.m.
# Frost/Nixon 9:45 p.m.
Entertainment Weekly named the Best Picture Showcase No. 1 on its "Must List" for this week.

So with that, I need to catch some sleep and get ready to sit all day and watch movies. Sounds like heaven, right?
