Still not sure who you think is going to win Best Picture tonight? Why not try a strictly mathematical approach. That is, our buddy Jesse David Fox’s vigorously researched Oscar Movie Pie Charts, which detail all the uh, details of each Best Picture nominee. For instance, did you know that “Argo” is basically 25 percent about “that week in college you pretended to be from Canada,” and another five percent “the child-hugging end of ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’”? I’m going to go ahead and pretty much guarantee you had no idea that’s what “Argo” was about. For that and more incredible filmic revelations, please enjoy a few more pie charts after the jump. For the whole slate, click the link. And don’t forget to follow @TheFrisky@xoamelia@havethehabit and the hashtag #OscarBuzz for all livetweeting action tonight starting at 6 p.m. [NYMag.com]

So in many ways, it’s anyone’s game on Sunday. Keep reading »

Oscars To Nominate 10 Films For Best Picture This Year

Too bad you weren’t released last year, “Star Trek,” because the Best Picture Oscar is going to be twice as hard to win at the 2009 Academy Awards ceremony. From now on, 10 movies will be nominated for the Academy’s top nod. Why? So that any type of film—be it a drama, a comedy, a documentary, or a cartoon—has a better chance of being recognized for its greatness. This is something of a return to old Hollywood—from 1931 to 1943, anywhere from 8 to 12 movies battled it out for the statue. Keep reading »
