    Yep me too, I also like the Life of Pi strip art; really nicely done, but my favourite would be Django. So Western.


    The Academy Awards has unveiled an official poster by Olly Moss.

    The artist and graphic designer has paid homage to 85 years of 'Best Picture' Oscars.

    Re: The Oscars 2013

    So Argo won the BAFTA, but I doubt the Oscars will be similar to the BAFTAs. Though usually they are seen as a preview to the Oscars.

    Re: The Oscars 2013

    Well Lincoln and Life of Pi really have a lot of nominations but it seems they will be in for a ride. A lot of competition, I do expect Life of pi to win some of the "less important" awards. Though Lincoln might grab best director and best actor, so that's really cool.

    At what time do the awards start?

    Re: The Oscars 2013

    It's quite an open race this year; there's no one film that's out to sweep and landsline the competition. I thought Les Miserables would scoop it all but pre-Oscars awards have not been so kind to them.

    The awards show will begin at 7pm ET( midnight GMT) on ABC.

    ---------- Post added February 25, 2013 at 11:06 AM ---------- Previous post was February 24, 2013 at 01:59 PM ----------

    Okay, so let's see how close I was with my predictions: (mine in green, official wins in red. Crossovers in purple)

    Spike vs Woody for best screenplay. I am looking forward to that, and I still don't get the 10 best film nominations to be honest, 5 was so much better.

    Re: The Oscars Thread

    I guess in the past with 5 films, some other good ones were shunned. Now with 10, you have a wider selection, even though with that number, better movies always get left out.

    I've only seen Gravity from that Best Picture list; this latter half of 2013 and beginning of the new year hasn't been a good for me cinema-wise. I don't see Gravity winning it though. Not even sure it deserves a nomination.

    Yes but so can be said about other categories. Sure its the most important one, but it seems illogical to me for such an event. Dunno, a sudden change of rues like that has really effected me enjoying the Oscars. It seems they all get a chance, but in the end one gets it, I see no point.

    Since actors/actress/director can also be expanded.

    Very true. Solemnly does the Academy's decision make sense.

    Shall we make our predictions for winners?

    Out of everything on that list, I've only seen Gravity, Her, Frozen, The Great Gatsby, The Hobbit : Desolation of Smaug, Iron Man III, and Star Trek Into Darkness.

    So I don't think any of my predictions would be valid or informed.

    Any MUST-SEE movies on the list that I should see, guys?
