Everyone wants to make their awards ceremony special, but after 85 years, how can this year’s Academy Awards stand out?
- Award for Best Actor – If Daniel Day-Lewis wins, he will be the only actor to have won three Oscars in this category.
- Award for Best Actor – If Denzel Washington wins for Best Actor, he will be the first black actor to have won two Oscars in that category.
- Award for Best Actress – If Emmanuelle Riva wins for “Amour,” she will be the oldest Best Actress winner in history, at 85. She has already set a record as the oldest Best Actress nominee.
- Award for Best Actress – If nine-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis in “Beasts of the Southern Wild”) she will also go into the record books as the youngest Best Actress. (The current youngest Best Actress is 21!)
- Awards for acting – If all four acting nominees from “The Silver Linings Playbook” win, it would be the first time in Oscar history. If they lose all four, it will NOT be a first.
- Award for Best Director – If “Beasts” director Benh Zeitlin, in his 30 wins, he’ll be the youngest Best Director winner in history.
- Award for Best Picture – If “Amour” wins Best Picture, it would be the first film in the French language to do win Best Picture. Unfortunately, “Amour” is more likely to win Best Foreign Film. It also has chances to win awards for Best Director, Best Actress and Best Original Screenplay.
- Award for Best Animated Feature – If “Frankenweenie” wins in this category, it will be the first time a stop-motion film that isn’t claymation or from Aardman Studios has won.
- Award for Best Animated Feature – If “Brave” wins with co-director Brenda Chapman, she will be the first woman to win this award.
Best of luck to all of these nominees. We hope your Academy Awards dreams come true!
