On Sunday, February 26, Billy Crystal hosted the 84th Academy Awards. Every year the ABC Television Network holds “Oscar Sunday” starting with coverage from “Good Morning America” live on the red carpet outside the Hollywood & Highland Center.
Continuing on through the day with “On the Red Carpet,” “On the Red Carpet at the Oscars,” “Oscars Red Carpet Live,” and finally leading up to the award show.
Some of the many nominations for the show consist of George Clooney and Brad Pitt for Best Actor in a Leading Role, Meryl Streep and Michelle Williams for Best Actress in a Leading Role, Kung Fu Panda 2 and Puss in boots for Best Animated Feature Film, The Adventures of Tintin and Hugo for Best Music (Original Score.)
Viewers look forward to a great awards show filled with beautiful celebrities dressed in the greatest designer clothes, and watching great actors and actresses, films and more win the best award that Hollywood can give.
Afterward the “Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards” show has become an unexpected post-Oscar show, where guests will join Kimmel after they’ve attended the awards event. This year, the show was less exciting as in previous years because many critics already knew who would end up winning. Although there were many movies released in 2011, not all of them qere Oscar-worthy, so even the winners weren’t surprised either.
All you need to know is that The Artist, a black-and-white silent film, won for best movie. Yes, you read that right. The rest of the winners can be found here.
