It’s almost down to the wire…just one day left until the Oscars.
The category that’s had the most buzz is, as always, Best Picture. But this year it really does seem like it could go one of 3 ways: Argo, as sweet justice for Ben Affleck not being nominated in the Best Director category (yet having won so many other awards in the run-up to the Oscars), Lincoln, because it’s a sweeping historic epic that tells the story of one of America’s most-loved presidents, or Zero Dark Thirty, which I still maintain is a well-made film that came under attack in the months following its release because it deals with such a sensitive issue. Or, the Academy could do a complete upset and one of the other 6 remaining films could just nab it instead.
I spoke to The Hollywood Reporter’s awards analyst Scott Feinberg about who he thinks has Best Picture in the bag, the actress for whom winning an Oscar would be a great birthday present and the Searching for Sugar Man doccie.
It’s been a great year of interviewing the stars behind some of the Oscar-nominated films. Here, then, a little refresher, in case you missed any of them. [Insert winking face here.]
Zero Dark Thirty
