The Oscars – The 81st Academy Awards honoring the best in film for 2008 will be held on Sunday, February 22, 2009 at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood. Actor Hugh Jackman will be hosting the ceremony for the first time. Sunday is just a week ahead, so in the meantime I suggest you follow ABC.com‘s “Road To The Oscars.” This ABC.com Oscars project will cover all Oscar related events including the parties that precede and follow this prime time event. Their daily show will feature daily news and updates, interviews, behind-the-scenes and prep footage. In addition to an insider’s look at what it takes to produce the biggest event in Hollywood, they will supply juicy interviews with this year’s nominees, host and producers. And now to the actual nominees and awards. Do you think you can nail down a winner? If you answered yes, prove it! Take The Oscars Challenge – Predict the Winners. I haven’t seen all the nominee movies yet but I have a solid opinion about some of them: Actress in a Leading Role – Angelina Jolie in CHANGELING, Best Picture – SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, Foreign Language Film – Waltz With Bashir. Best Director is quite challenging. What do you think?
