The Academy has announced this year's nominees. Find out who's in and who's out for this year's awards on their website. Everything Oscar can be found here: fun trivia, bloopers, gowns, glam shots, and all you need to get you ready for the show on Sunday March 2.
The event will be hosted by popular Ellen DeGeneres—her second time at the helm. The theme this year is movie heroes and I would hope that it's more than just super heroes—there certainly should be a lot of other iconic heroes from which to choose.
Of course a lot of the nominations are films that are currently just in theatres, but you can rest assurred that Calgary Public Library has you covered. As soon as they are available to order we will do so and once they are ordered and turn up in the catalogue they are ready for you to place your holds.
In fact, “Academy Award Nominations 2013” as a subject heading in our catalgoue will bring up all records of the current Oscar Nominations that we have in our collection (or on order).
And yes, I was sorry to see that Prisoners wasn't up for anything (other than cinematography), especially Jake G. But then I have a really lousy track record at guessing Oscars nominations and winners.
