Oscar-nominated reel librarians

No winners (yet)

If you know me, you know I love the Oscars. It’s a family tradition, librarian-style. My mom and I used to watch the Oscars together every year — no slackers in this family. We have kept this up, even several time zones apart (even while I lived overseas). And I’m totally down with the tradition of griping about the Oscars… but just like with voting, you gotta participate to be able to complain! You gotta earn it.

Where was I? Oh, yes, waxing rhapsodic about the Oscars. So if you, too, are caught up in Oscar fever, then I’ve compiled a list below of Oscar-nominated reel librarians.

After compiling the list below, I noticed that I included all the films in my “Best Librarian Films by Decade” lists (click here and here).
