Night at the Oscars

February 27, 2011


Special Event


Oscars Night!

Well, it’s that time of year again – the Oscars. As Hollywood’s highest honor, the stars will be out tonight for what is usually the world’s worst kept secrets. In most cases, we already know who is going to win before the golden statues are passed out. Our prediction is that the biggest possible upset may come in the Best Picture category. We believe this will go to the King’s Speech but the Social Network may have a slim shot at pulling the upset. Other than that, expect Natalie Portman, Colin Firth, Christian Bale, and a few lucky others to add Oscar winner to their moniker.

We are interested to see how Anne Hathaway and James Franco will fair as hosts for the award show.  We were pleasantly surprised to see that they seemed to work well together in the commercials for the upcoming broadcast and even have a little bit of chemistry.

Below is the list of the main nominees and the corresponding categories. But more importantly, what movies do you think got missed? What are some of your honorable mentions? Let us know!
