Last week the nominees for the 64th Annual BAFTAs were released and now we have the nominees for the Academy Awards and the Oscars. I do adore this time of year because awards season is always so much fun isnt’ it? The hype, the anxiety, the snubs, the winners, the losers, the long shot etc. Then there’s the hosts, musical numbers and overall production; it really is the Super Bowl of Motion Pictures Awards (take that Golden Globes). There’s something for everyone, so what’s not to love?:P
This year James Franco, up for Best Actor for 127 Hours, is set to co-host the awards show with Anne Hathaway. The 83rd Academy Awards will take place at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles on February 27th. Personally speaking, I feel better about this year’s Oscar because I’ve seen nearly everything that’s been nominated. So that said here are the more notable nominees (photos courtesy of : Fandango)
Quite a line up and some very deserving candidates who all really deserve their shot at “Oscar Gold”. For the complete list (including the more technical award nominees) click here. What are your picks?? Place your bets now!!
Here’s hoping the Big Night will be something magical. As far as I’m concerned, last year was one of the very best in recent years so we’ll see what happens in just over a month. At the very least I hope there are some fun photo ops that yield great lasting memories like this one below. Fingers crossed right?
(Disclaimer: I didn’t take this picture but sure wish I did…also not confirmed this was taken at the Oscars either:P)
