Our Film and Performing Arts Editor takes a look at this year's Oscar race. And don't forget to check him out online as part of CBC Community's Oscar night live chat starting tomorrow night at 7pm!
Enter to win a prize pack from eOne Films to commemorate four of their Academy Award nominated films, including prizes from Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Master, The Impossible, and Moonrise Kingdom.
There are several categories for the Oscars with very particular qualification standards. Original Score is clearly one of them as only 97 films qualify this year. With less than 100 possibilities and the Academy being categorically opposed to surprising people, it shouldn’t be very difficult to pick out the scores that will be nominated (including movies like Chipwrecked in the running also helps narrow the field).
This Week in Dork is a weekly feature that attempts to encapsulate all the dorky events happening in and around Toronto every week. The February 27 - March 5 edition features an overblown awards ceremony with free popcorn, suicide bomber satire, South Korean horror and a Steampunk masquerade.
Will, Jeff, Lucas and Noah sit down to discuss the Oscar nomination, the return of Lost, Mass Effect 2, Star Trek Online and its effects on social lives, Iron Man's suit redesign and what people can expect from Iron Man 2.
