Welcome to the Oscars 2013 Live, FilmoFilia shop for updates from 85th Academy Awards, taking place Sunday night at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood!
Follow live coverage of the 2013 Academy Awards, from Oscar’s red-carpet to the show itself, and, of course, the night’s big winners.
The Oscars race is one of the most open for years, between best picture contenders Lincoln and Argo!
Daniel Day-Lewis could also become the actor with the most Best Actor Oscars for his role in Lincoln; Argo could become the fourth film ever to win best picture without a directing nomination; Emmanuelle Riva from Amour could become the oldest Best Actress winner ever on her 86th birthday, or nine-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis could become the youngest in the same category.
We also have our Live Chat, so feel free to participate.

So, it’s a big night for Hollywood, ha? Who will have the best dress, suit, tie, hair, and most important – who will take home a golden statue?
Well, it’s not over till the fat lady sings (no, this has nothing to do with Adele and her Skyfall song!) and we still have time to predict, right?
Shall we start with the Best Picture part? I think things are pretty clear here: Argo or Zero Dark Thirty. And somehow I have a feeling that Zero Dark Thirty will win (I will add – unfortunately here, ’cause I’m not Kathhryn Bigelow’s fan.)
No matter how many awards Argo has won over the past weeks – it seems that everybody out there thinks Bigelow’s film is a perfect mix of honesty and eloquence (and we’re talking about the Academy Awards, after all, so who cares if I enjoyed watching Silver Linings Playbook and Beasts of the Southern Wild, right?)
Pretty much the same thing as with that Best Short Film – Animated category. You still have time to check them all out right here on our site, but as one of our readers said – I am 100% sure that Paperman will win (read:“a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation,” or read: “it’s Disney for God’s sake!”)
Best Director is also an interesting one. We have David O. Russell, Ang Lee, Steven Spielberg, Michael Haneke and Benh Zeitlin, but (again, my opinion) – Ang Lee will get the Oscar.
Here’s my wild guess – Haneke will win Best Foreign Film, Spielberg’s Lincoln will have it’s 5 minutes with Daniel Day-Lewis who will probably win Best Actor, O. Russell will hug Jennifer Lawrence when they announce her as Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook and Benh Zeitlin will win – nothing. Which sucks, I know.
But hey, that’s what I think, and you’re free to share your thoughts in comments below, or type something to start chat, or… I don’t know, do something, let’s have fun tonight!
I also think that Skyfall getting one for Best Original Song is a sure bet. For Visual Effects, it will surely go to The Hobbit. Btw. shouldn’t the Django Unchained script go into the Best Adapted lot? I mean, the film is inspired by the original Italian film Django, with Franco Nero?
To be honest, the only thing I’m REALLY looking forward to hear on the Oscars is Seth McFarlane’s wits :D At least I hope he’ll be able to insert some of his sharp lines in between. My personal favorite film would be either Django Unchained or Life of Pi. I didn’t like neither the Silver Lining Playbook at all, nor Lawrence’s performance.
