Colorado Springs Real Estate Facts & Fun


Catch an Oscar-worthy movie this week

Next Sunday, February 28th is the night of the 88th Academy Awards (5PM Mountain Time on ABC). For most of us, it's a fun evening of watching our favorite stars walk the red carpet in glamorous gowns and stylish tuxedos. There is always a big to-do around who's hosting - this year it's Chris Rock - and how they fare compared to their predecessors. But if not for the actual films being honored, none of this would occur. Below is a list of this year's nominees for Best Picture and where you might still see them before the awards.
