I founded my website in 1996 on the now-defunct homepage collection known as GeoCities. Employing my personal moniker, "The Oscar Guy," my site was one of the earliest Academy Awards fansites on the internet.

Through various changes and additions, the site is now Cinema Sight and has been operating on its own domain for several years.

I'm a film critic who specializes in film awards, specifically the Academy Awards. I've been a member of the Online Film Critics Society since its inception in 1997 and am serving my fifth term on the Governing Committee.

Cinema Sight features several weekly features and has a pair of permanent contributors whose work is appreciated, but woefully under-rewarded.

Through Patreon, I hope to be able to meet regular expenses without eliminating a large chunk of my day working as a wage slave. Every little bit helps.

Contributors will also have the option of being listed on a special contributors page. If that's not enough, members of this level or higher will get to suggest one movie a month to get added to our Netflix queues (if available). These titles will be added near the top of the queue taking a back seat only to those selections part of annual retrospectives, Feed the Queue entries and OFTA Hall of Fame preparation titles.

The rest is a given. You will also get one of four small square ads (just under half the width of the sidebar clustered into a four-quartered layout) in the Wordpress sidebar that appears on a majority of pages on the website.
Goals
