TCM's 31 Days of Oscar 2016 - 360 Degrees of Oscar - Make the Connection - #LetsMovie - Feb. 17 - Mar. 2

In their own variation of the popular parlor game "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon," TCM presents this year's annual "31 Days of Oscar®" festival in a fun format where each film will be linked by a common performer to the one following it. As always, every movie in the festival has either won or been nominated for an Academy Award. No films or connections are repeated, and TCM's incredible month-long schedule comes full circle when the final film is tied back to the first by a common cast member.

February 1, 2016 - February 16, 2016 "Connections" may be found by clicking here.
