On March 2nd will be held the 86th edition of the Academy Awards. As every year, we’ll get some surprises. Here are a list of what awaits us during the ceremony. Driving will be the responsibility of the presenter and comedian Ellen DeGeneres, who had led the ceremony in 2007 with a great success. Throughout the awards, we see the presentations of Pink, Bette Midler and U2, among others. It will also carry out an homage to classic film The Wizard of Oz . The theme of the prizes of this year is “Movie Heroes” where we can see a retrospective and a count of heroes, in and out of the big screen.
The categories where we take the biggest surprises are: Best Actor, where there is a race between Matthew McConaughey, for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, But… could it be that he was finally granted the statuette to Leonardo Di Caprio? In Best Director field the real competition is between Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave) and Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity). Could it be granted the first Oscar for a Mexican director? In the Best Actress arena, Cate Blanchett is the favorite, but Amy Adams will certainly give a good fight. Amy Adams has been nominated 5 times for an Oscar without winning… yet. And for Best Picture, the strongest films are: Gravity by Alfonso Cuaron, which is nominated in 11 categories, 12 Years a Slave by Steve McQueen, with 9 nominations, and American Hustle by David O. Russell, with 11 nominations.
However, in the different ceremonies of this awards season, as the Golden Globe, BAFTA and AFI Awards, among others, the award-winning film was 12 Years a Slave, which may give us a clue as how will be the Oscar. But remember that throughout history, the Academy has been marked by unexpected twists to the last minute.
Do not miss the most important film awards! The ceremony starts from 7:00 pm and you can tune it in its original language in TNT.
