Who will take Home an Oscar Sunday Night?

Mar 06, 2010 by Tom Jones

Oscars

By now, you all know the drill!

We eagerly put the television on to watch the Oscar’s live, and hope to watch an exciting and eventful Oscar’s event. Of course, seeing what the celebrities are wearing is always fun.  More often than not, we’re bored to tears, well into the first hour. Ahh, somehow that’s part of the tradition.  Every once in awhile, there is a good Awards Ceremony, but this is an annual event that we’re nationally, and internationally hooked on.  With Steve Martin and Alex Baldwin hosting, it could be great.

It’s the "Oscar.com’s must-see site content," so until the live event, select a category to explore, and to enjoy.

Until then, hit the Nominees header link, and you’ll be redirected into a scroll over bar of the pictures and names of all this year’s Oscar nominees. Also, check out the History and Organization of the Academy. Their homepage and other pages are very cool, and also provide a look into cinematic history, as well as an eye to the present, while mindful of the future of the Cinematic Arts.

Predict the Oscars Winners

Make your Oscar predictions, share your picks with friends, and come back again and again to make changes right up until show time. See how you’ve done after every Oscar is won.

Travelin’ local’s always interested in what you think, who won, who should have won, and give us your opinions, or dish the dirt, no matter, it’s all about having an evening of fun.
