How To Watch the Oscars

BG Los Angeles

Two of these are the Producers Guild of America Award (won this year by The Shape of Water) and the Screen Actors Guild Award for best cast (won this year by Three Billboards - The Shape of Water wasn't nominated). It is the third film ever to win 11 awards, tying with "Titanic" in 1997 and "Ben-Hur" in 1959. My prediction is yes, we'll all continue to watch live coverage of the Academy Awards into the wee hours of the night, because why not - it's the biggest night of the year!

"Martin McDonagh's darkly amusing tragicomedy has surged at the 11th hour to go into Sunday as the narrow favorite in what most experts are characterizing as a four-way race with "The Shape of Water", "Get Out" and Lady Bird". "I think I actually ate the card that was inside the envelope". She was rebutted the same night: Paddy Chayevsky, giving the award for best screenplay, declared that he was "sick and exhausted of people exploiting the Academy Awards for the propagation of their own propaganda". Actress Vicky Krieps to his Right and Daniel Day Lewis to His Left. And yet, James Ivory's adaption of André Aciman's novel Call Me By Your Name is likely to be this category's worthy victor. Oscar nominees, take note! It's only been the rare occasion when the DGA victor hasn't gone on to win the best film award at the Oscars and a win for Mexican del Toro would also be a thumb-in-the-eye for Donald Trump.

Nevertheless, it would have been nice to see Wonder Woman nominated in this category at least, especially as Logan managed to sneak in there - and it would be even nicer to see Dee Rees and Virgil Williams win for Mudbound. In 2014, Cate Blanchett won Best Actress for "Blue Jasmine", just one month after Allen's daughter came forward with her version of longstanding accusations that he had molested her as a child.

Plummer was a late addition to the film, replacing Kevin Spacey, who was removed from the movie following allegations of sexual misconduct.

Let's call it #OscarsSoOld: Three of this year's Academy Award nominees are among the oldest ever. He is also the oldest person to win an acting Oscar, earning a supporting-actor honor for "Beginners" at age 82. Guillermo del Toro's film isn't your prototypical Oscar victor in a year when few films blew audiences away, but its story, direction and performances provide more than enough evidence for "The Shape of Water" to be a victor. Del Toro is a master of monster movies, and "The Shape of Water" is a lovely film that deserves any recognition it gets.

Anderson's tender but brutal story of the romance between a dressmaker and his muse is also up for best director and actor, best supporting actress for Lesley Manville, best score for Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood and best costume design.

The ceremony will be hosted at the Dolby Theatre, Hollywood and Highland Centre in Los Angeles, USA on March 4.

CHANG: So it's nearly like a mathematical game who ends up becoming the best picture.

Whoopi Goldberg made history as the first African-American to host the Academy Awards show in 1994, in addition to being the first woman to host the show solo. He'll be the fifth Canadian producer to win best picture, following Jack L. Warner (My Fair Lady), Albert S. Ruddy (The Godfather and Million Dollar Baby), James Cameron (Titanic) and Paul Haggis (Crash).

MONDELLO: First time in 90 years that one member of half of the population of the world has been nominated in that category. Bob is very attached to Roger Deakins, who's nominated for the - what is it, Bob?

Hollywood's biggest night is upon us and there are a variety of ways to watch all of the dazzling red carpet arrivals and the big event. The nomination is the 51st of his career, second only to Walt Disney's 59. Hope holds the record for most hosting gigs, and his wit and savvy explained why. His other five nods were for original song.
