Time for The Oscars 2013February 22nd, 2013 at 12:37 pm by Marcus Jackson under The Movie Guru, Uncategorized
This is Marcus Jackson, the FOX 10 / CW 55 Resident Movie Guru here. Well, The Academy Awards are almost here and we will see who will walk on the stage when they announce “And the Oscar goes to …” With 2012 being an election year and by the result of the Golden Globe & SAG Awards Winners this movie award season is going be “political” in many ways. The Academy Awards are no exception – The 3 main movies that are getting the most buzz as far as nominations for the Oscar – Argo, Lincoln, and Zero Dark Thirty. We can’t forget about Les Miserables, Silver Linings Playbook (huge buzz), The Life of Pi, and Django Unchained; as well as Beasts of the Southern Wild and Amour – which may win the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.
Now the big Oscar buzz is the fact that one of these film’s directors was not nominated for the Best Director Oscar, even though he won it for the Golden Globe – Ben Affleck.
With him out of the running the Best Director and Best Picture Oscars may not goes to the same film. As a “Movie Guru” my pick for Best Picture is going to go to Argo, BUT, the Best Director Oscar I think will go to Steven Spielberg for Lincoln or David O. Russell for Silver Linings Playbook.
Now to see all of the Oscar Nominations you can go to the Official Website ….
Well, being the FOX affiliate station here in the Mobile/Pensacola area I’m excited for “The Simpsons” getting an Oscar nod for its Animated Short Film – Maggie Simpson in “The Longest Daycare” and for this year’s Academy Awards host, Seth MacFarlane. Can’t wait to see what the creator of FOX’s Family Guy & American Dad as well as last summer’s big hit comedy, Ted, has planned for us the viewing audience. I think he’s going to be just as funny as Billy Crystal who has host The Oscars a few times. He could join the ranks of Bob Hope & Johnny Carson as being one of the most memorable hosts for this Star-Studded Event.
Well, my friend and co-worker, Meteorologist Michael White says it’s going to rain all this weekend so Sunday I’ll be right in front of the TV watching to see who will win the coveted prize for motion pictures here in the Good Old U. S. of A. If you do the same make sure that the next day you watch FOX 10 News starting at 4:30am and Studio 10 at 8am when we will recap the Academy Awards and talk about the Oscar Winners …. And the fashions and all the after parties …. Etc. etc. etc.
This is the FOX 10 / CW 55 Resident Movie Guru, Marcus Jackson. Hope that you all stay safe and dry from the rain this weekend and watch The Oscars this Sunday with me …. Well, at your own homes … unless you’re throwing an Oscar party, so then by all means invite me over. See you when I post my next blog entry when I’ll talk about the big movies coming up in March. See you at the movies.
