Movies, possibly the most universally loved “escape,” are celebrated in style this Sunday with “The 83rd Academy Awards” program.
Whether you enjoy watching movies peacefully alone, or with a small gathering of family and friends, or you’re planning a full-blown Oscar party, there’s no shortage of ideas to help make the most of this big night.
Get up to speed on all the films and nominees, screen interviews with past winners, review Oscar fashion, and get the inside scoop on all the preparation leading up to the awards, at Oscar.com, the event’s official website.
If you’re looking for an exclusive, behind the scenes picture, there’s an app for that. The 2011 Oscar race is the first to offer an Oscar Backstage Pass.
From “A Royal English Tea,” in honor of “The King’s Speech,” to Irish Corned Beef and Budweiser, for fans of “The Fighter,” or “A Meal of Opposites,” including Black and White Cookies inspired by “The Black Swan,” Epicurious suggests saluting the Academy Awards, “with creative meals based on 2011’s Best Picture nominees.”
With the field of best picture nominations increased in 2010 from five to ten, it’s not easy to see all the films before the Awards show. There’s still time to catch up, however, and the North DeKalb Mall AMC theaters just happen to be currently showing two Best Picture nominees: " The King's Speech" and "True Grit."
