OscarWatch: Best Director predictions
Now that weâ€™ve tackled the Best Picture race, letâ€™s move on to the Best Director category and explore which filmmakers might hear their names called on nomination morning.
David Fincher, The Social Network (pictured)
Tom Hooper, The Kingâ€™s Speech
Christopher Nolan, Inception
Ben Affleck, The Town
Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan
Danny Boyle, 127 Hours
Lisa Cholodenko, The Kids Are All Right
Joel Coen & Ethan Coen, True Grit
James L. Brooks, How Do You Know
Mike Leigh, Another Year
Roman Polanski, The Ghost Writer
David O. Russell, The Fighter
Peter Weir, The Way Back
Among the directors Iâ€™ve left off: Toy Story 3â€˜s Lee Unkrich (whoâ€™d be the first director ever nominated for an animated film), Winterâ€™s Boneâ€˜s Debra Granik, and Shutter Islandâ€˜s Martin Scorsese. Do you think the Academy would include an animation guy or is that never going to happen?
James Franco and Anne Hathaway to host Oscars
Actors James Franco and Anne Hathaway will cohost this seasonâ€™s Oscar ceremony, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced. Telecast producers Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer have decided to continue the two-host trend from last yearâ€™s show, when Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin shared emceeing duties. But they clearly seem to be courting a different generation: Franco and Hathawayâ€™s combined age (61) is less than Steve Martinâ€™s.
I applaud Cohen, Mischer, and AMPAS for thinking outside the box and not going with a predictable choice. Both Franco and Hathaway are sharp and funny, and hosting the Oscars should allow them to show off different sides of their personalities. The only awkwardness will stem from the fact that Franco is a surefire Best Actor contender for his performance in 127 Hours, while after the mixed critical and commercial reaction to Love & Other Drugs, Hathaway is looking more and more like a long shot at best. Or waitâ€¦do we now have a good start-off topic for their hosting bits?
