Oscar Preview for us Girls!
What was your favorite movie of 2009? Who was your favorite actress from this past year? Tune in to this year’s Oscars to find out if your favorite movie or favorite actors walk away with the 2010 Academy Awards. The 82nd Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, is only a few weeks away. The Oscars will take place on March 7th, 2010 in Los Angeles, California. The hosts for this year will be actors and comedians Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. The nominees for the event were announced earlier on Tuesday, and to no surprise, Avatar was one of the films that gained the most nominations.
The James Cameron directed Avatar was one of the best films of last year and probably in recent times. If you haven’t gotten a chance to see this movie I would definitely recommend you go out and see it before it’s out of theaters. If possible try to catch in an IMAX theatre because the experience is just amazing. Who knew a movie with a bunch of blue people would one day beat out the highest grossing film of all time, Titanic! Recently, Avatar has broken numerous records recently, one of which was once held by the Titanic. Titanic made over $1.82 billion dollars, and Avatar surpassed that amount! I can’t even imagine that much money. Did you know that Titanic was also directed by the same individual who directed Avatar, Mr. James Cameron? He truly is a pioneer in the film industry of our times.
Besides the Avatar, The Hurt Locker also gained quite a few nominations. It will go up against Avatar for the categories Best Picture and Best Director. After winning the Golden Globe for the Best Actor of the Year for Crazy Heart, Jeff Bridges will attempt to win an Oscar. Last year also saw the comeback of Sandra Bullock in the Blind Side, who will go up against Meryl Streep in Julie and Julia for Best Actress. Two of my personal favorite films of 2009, UP and The Princess and the Frog will go up against one another for the Best Animated Feature award. It should be a great night, full of surprises. Tune in to see who wore the best dress and if your favorite movie took home the Oscars.
