    Will they air live on TV? If so what channel?

    Good Morning America (ABC)

  • steve50

    Time to crack open a new, more appropriate avatar!

    See you in the morning!

  • OLIN

    Anyone know if they’re sticking with that thing (that is totally directed at us, by the way) where they announce Best Picture in random order?

  • Greg Y

    OLIN, wasn’t it lovely? I was all ready to say that last year was a good year – not great but pretty good – when the 8 slots on the side had all been taken up. And then, WHAM! Daldry strikes again.

  • Greg y

    Well, struck. It’s not likely that they’ll nominate THAT again, not even for Daldry.

  • rufussondheim

    Not sure if I’m the only one who thinks this, but tomorrow morning is far more exciting than Oscar night. Hopefully there will be some surprises.

  • Mike

    I see what you mean Rufussondheim. Until things are official we still have hope our favorites might be nominated. It’s exciting. I just hate the disappointment if they aren’t ;). Which is what I’ll feel tomorrow if The Perks of Being a Wallflower doesn’t even score a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination :P.

  • Patrick

    I posted this in the wrong thread just now.

    Just a last minute thing that I wanted to point out. Here’s a list of all the years when the Oscars used a preferential voting system to pick the Best Picture winner:

    1934: It Happened One Night – 5 (2nd most)
    1935: Mutiny On The Bounty – 7 (most)
    1936: The Great Ziegfeld – 7 (most)
    1937: The Life Of Emile Zola – 10 (most)
    1938: You Can’t Take It With You – 7 (most)
    1939: Gone With The Wind – 13 (most)
    1940: Rebecca – 11 (most)
    1941: How Green Was My Valley – 10 (2nd most)
    1942: Mrs. Miniver – 12 (most)
    1943: Casablanca – 8 (3rd most)
    1944: Going My Way – 10 (most)
    1945: The Lost Weekend – 7 (2nd most)
    2009: The Hurt Locker – 9 (most)
    2010: The King’s Speech – 12 (most)
    2011: The Artist – 10 (2nd most)

    I’ve listed the number of nominations that the Best Picture winner received, as well as where it ranked in terms of nominations (in brackets). Notice that:

    For 10 of the 15 years, the Best Picture had the most nominations.
    For 4 of the 15 years, the Best Picture had the 2nd most nominations.
    For 1 of the 15 years, the Best Picture had the 3rd most nominations.

    Since the Best Picture winners are picked via preferential voting, and since the nominations for all categories are also picked via preferential voting, the Best Picture winners tend to be among the nomination leaders. I predict that Lincoln, Les Mis and Life Of Pi will lead the nominations this year.

  • JP

    I wish they announced everything in random order. It would be a lot exciting.

    This is my favorite awards day too.

    The best one for me was 2004 (screaming when Fernando Meirelles got nominated… and then there was Johnny Depp, Naomi Watts, Shohreh Aghadashloo (my NGNG prediction that paid off), Djimon Hounsou).

    The worst one is by miles and miles and miles far 2009 (the proof that you can have a lousy BP lineup in a good year… they lacked the guts to nominate the two blockbusters).

  • JP

    @ Patrick

    You have brought up an excellent argument. I didn’t know this thing about the preferential ballots in the 30s and 40s. Somehow I’ve been thinking that Argo is 1) neither going to be one of the top 3/4 or even 5 film with the most nominations and 2) that the difference between its nominations and Lincoln’s are likely gonna be, at the very very best for Argo, 4.

    Number 2 didn’t prevent only A Beautiful Mind from winning in the past two or three decades. Even Traffic, who is the only film or one of the very very few that won Directing/Screenplay/Editing/an acting award and still lost BP.

  • Mike

    Thanks for the heads up A.J. Now I know where to watch them.

  • tesh

    what exact time is the full nominee list available? and is it only at oscar? is it during or right after mcfarlane and stone present? and finally, do some people get it a few minutes earlier?

  • OLIN

    Sasha, your tweets now have me convinced that The Impossible will get a BP nom. The whole Hollywood Feeling Good About Itself thing with Argo sorta seems to be at play with this film. If this does happen, I don’t see Watts losing.

  • Reno

  • Denni

    WTF? No Ben Affleck for Directing and No Leonardo DiCaprio for Supporting?!? Yay for Jacki Weaver though for Supporting!

  • Sammy

    Looking at the actual nominations, Amour is really loved by the Academy and they might give the BP award to Amour. It will be Amour/Lincoln race from now on. ZD30, Argo and Les Miz have no realistic BP chance.
