The 83rd Annual Academy Awards Show is less than a month away. What does that mean for television viewers? It means that Turner Classic Movies is once again running its annual 31 DAYS OF OSCAR® festival.

31 Days of Oscar Turner Classic Movies

The 2011 edition of the month-long event will feature more than 340 Academy Award®-nominated and winning movies, scheduled in trivia-inspired marathons.  In addition, each night will feature a Best Picture Oscar winner at 10 p.m. (ET).

TCM host Robert Osborne, who is also the official biographer of the Academy Awards and the Academy’s red carpet greeter, will host 31 DAYS OF OSCAR, which will mark its 17th year on Turner Classic Movies.  The 2011 edition will feature several high-profile films making their debuts on TCM, including three Best Picture winners: Cavalcade (1933), Amadeus (1984) and Forrest Gump (1994).

The month also includes the TCM debuts of the blockbusters Pretty Woman (1990) and Thelma & Louise (1991), as well as outstanding dramas like Hugh Hudson’s Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (1984), Hector Babenco’s Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985), Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing (1989) and Michael Mann’s Ali (2001).

This festival would be a great way to introduce your teens to many of your favorite classic movies. Then, watching the Oscars together, which has always been one of my favorite bonding experiences with my sons, will be even more special.

You can see the entire TCM 31 DAYS OF OSCAR® schedule embedded below. After watching all these great award winning films, don’t forget to tune into this years Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, February 27, 2011 on ABC.
