There is so much buzz about the Oscar nominated movies. Honestly, this may be one of the hotly contested nominations in years. Movies like Amour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Misérables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty have their fan base yet only one will win. The W Hotels in New York will be offering up a different kind of buzz in the Living Rooms of all four New York City Hotels Oscar night. In honor of film’s biggest night, they will be offering their own nominations for ‘best in cocktail’. Best of all, no matter which one you choose they are all winners.
