The 83rd annual Academy Award presentation is Sunday night. James Franco and Anne Hathaway are hosting. The two are rumored to be reenacting famous movie scenes. So if you don’t want to hear their rendition of “You’re the One that I Want” from the musical Grease, you may want to locate the mute button. Oh just kidding, it could be cute. So while Oscar tries to pull in a younger audience, will Academy voters fall in line and give The Social Network the top honors? Or will they chose a small independent film like last year (The Hurt Locker) and hand the gold statue to Winter’s Bone? As far as the top acting prize, will the Oscar go to a guy with a rock, a man with a stammer, or a dancer with delusions? The biggest question of the night for some in the art world is whether the illusive street artist “Banksy” will show up if Exit through the Gift Shop takes the top prize for best documentary. Some of his work has been seen around town. Is it shameless self-promotion or real? If you haven’t seen all the nominated movies yet, you’re going to be eating a lot of popcorn this weekend.
