What have you learned from the complicated characters in this award-winning film?
Jennifer Lawrence won a Golden Globe last night for her work in Silver Linings Playbook, and the movie is up for 8 Academy Awards this year, including Best Picture.
As I watched the film, I couldn’t help but think, “Wow. There’s a whole lot of crazy in this movie.” I was startled by the loud family interactions, the physical violence, and the evident emotional pain felt by these characters.
Even though they all didn't win the Oscar awards this weekend, the nominees have already touched our hearts and minds. While enjoying five of this year's favorites, I found some great relationship advice.
How does your Academy Awards choice for Best Picture reflect on you in the dating pool?
The 2012 Oscars (or The 84th Annual Academy Awards if you're scouring the DVR listings to find it) are tonight! You've probably already made your Oscar pool picks (or plan to root for that one movie you actually saw). But how does your choice for Best Picture reflect on you in the dating pool?
Woody Allen's 2011 comedy is up for an Oscar this year. We take a look at what it says about love.
We are super-excited about the Oscars, which are this Sunday, but it turns out that out of all nine Best Picture nominees, most of us have only seen "Midnight in Paris" and maybe one other movie. Oops. It makes sense that the YourTango staff has a penchant for romantic movies, but does "Midnight in Paris," Woody Allen's latest, stand a chance at winning Best Picture?
Who needs a shrink when you've got the local cineplex? And the winner is...
To paraphrase the song, most people are lookin' for love advice in all the wrong places. Sure you can bore a therapist for $100 dollars-an-hour, buy dozens of self-help books, or ask Dr. Drew, but you're just wasting your time. That's right, all the riddles of the dating universe can be answered at the movies, and in anticipation of the 2011 Oscar Academy Awards we've chosen some of our favorite flicks from the past year to relay their pearls of wisdom to you. Nine films, nine Academy Award-worthy nominations for best romantic axiom. Here we go:

The most realistic, relatable, helpful and smartest portrayals of romantic relationships. Let us know if you agree with us and who YOU would choose to win the 2011 Academy Awards.
YourTango's own 2011 Oscars nominations for the best and worst onscreen relationships.
Relationships are an integral part of our real lives, so it's only fitting that they take center stage onscreen as well. Love-themed story lines were woven throughout this year's Oscar-nominated films, making for gripping, tragic, thrilling and wonderful entertainment. For better of for worse, some of the strongest cinematic moments focused on relationship dynamics, and we gleaned a few helpful lessons from the characters' struggles and triumphs. Take a look at the best onscreen pairings of the year, and then tune into the Academy Award telecast on February 27 to see which of them will score precious Oscar gold.
What do the stars say about the 2011 Oscar nominations for Best Actress?
Every actress dreams of bagging that gorgeous golden Oscar statuette, but if the Best Actress Curse is to be believed, scoring an Academy Award means tanking a relationship (think Sandra Bullock, Kate Winslet and Reese Witherspoon, whose relationships fell apart within a year of their Best Actress wins). If the curse is real, can we then predict who will win the 2011 Best Actress by looking at whose love life is least stable? We hope not!
