BAFTA (the British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Awards happened a little while back, but this artist, Travis Coburn, was chosen to draw up one of each best film nominees for this years BAFTA’s (Avatar, An Education, The Hurt Locker, Precious, and Up in the Air). These retro posters are pretty spiffy and I wish I was this cool to illustrate something like this, maybe if I had like a year to do it I could. You can see more of Travis’ work Portfolio 1 and Portfolio 2. Check the five out after the jump!
So over at Oscar.com they had a little contest of trivial knowledge of Oscar history throughout the last month along with a ballot that would count for points as well. During the Academy Awards they also had live trivia that added more points and if your ballot had the right winner you would receive more points. Well……I got fifth overall some how and I don’t know how. It was pretty ridiculous. I did answer the questions everyday and I followed along all night. And my name was shown on the website. Woot! That’s pretty cool and I got some screen caps of the score. My final score was 46,371 with first place being 49,685. I was so close, but oh well. I got in fourth at one point into the night, but I slipped up some where.
You can check out my score among the top 10 after the jump!
Tonight is the big night and I’ve got the live updates of the winners as they come. The 82nd Academy Awards will take place on tonight, Sunday March, 7th at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood with a live telecast airing on ABC starting at 8PM (EST) / 5PM (PST) and hosted by Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin.
Hopefully we’ll see the deserving winners, fun performances, great tributes and memorable moments. This was an amazing year of film and this should be a night that will be remembered in Hollywood. A great solo tribute to the late great John Hughes will also be done, which I am pretty excited for. ALSOOOO A SALUTE TO HORROR FILMS!!! Should be a great night.
Tonight marks the 82nd Annual Academy Awards and will be the biggest night in film all year. It’s been a long time coming and who will land on top of this ridiculous year of film? With record breakers, e-mail controversies, and amazingly original stories, this night is going to be very interesting to see the outcome. I’m pretty excited, are you?! Well here are my predictions as I see them, I’m probably right, just saying you know………But seriously, hopefully I’m right because I’ll get some pretty cool prizes with my predictions with all the contests I entered. With out further ado……
The complete list of nominations for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards have been announced today (oscars.com). The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveiled their nominees this morning in the wee hours. It was a great “Christmas” present to wake up to read. This is the first year since they have had 10 nominees for best picture since 1943. Many obvious nominations, but many surprises that make me happy.
