This year’s class of Oscar nominees was announced this morning in Hollywood, and with American Hustle and Gravity leading the pack, the nominations don’t look all that different than the Golden Globes or BAFTAs. No nomination for Pixar and Monsters University, and no Best Actor nominations for Tom Hanks or Robert Redford. Not like any of those three are short on their awards shelf, but Hanks in Captain Philips and Redford in All Is Lost both gave performances many critics called the best of already distinguished careers.
The MPAA announced today that the host for this year’s Oscars will be Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. He did a pretty decent job of hosting the season opener of SNL this year, and at least it’s not Billy Crystal. Again.
People like to predict Oscar winners right before awards season and right before the nominations come out. But one big internet brain has tasked himself with predicting several of the main Oscar winners for the next five years based on movies that are already known to be in production.
The Oscars start at 7:30pm EST, which is half an hour from the time of this posting. I rarely agree with the Oscar nominees or the winners, but I still like to watch the whole stupid dog and pony show. Feel free to follow along in this thread, make your predictions etc.
