FORT LEE, New Jersey, (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
In its latest blog titled "Oscar Buzz Surrounds Seth McFarlane's Tradition-breaking Role as Host of 85th annual Academy Awards," OMFGGossip.com dishes on the announcement that "The Family Guy" creator and Actress Emma Stone will name this year's Oscar nominees on January 10.
According to OMFGGossip.com, McFarlane broke the news yesterday via Twitter.
OMFGGossip.com's first Oscar countdown blog offers readers the inside scoop on the upcoming nominee announcements, as well as plans for the awards ceremony itself.
The OMFG.com blog reports that MacFarlane is the first Academy Awards host to also announce the award nominees since Charleston Heston served both roles back in 1972. McFarlane and Heston are the only two hosts in Oscar history to do both. Nominations are ordinarily announced by the current Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president and a former Oscar winner or nominee. AMPAS President Hawk Kochan will not be on hand for this year's announcement, according to the OMFGGossip.com blog.
Stone (“Gangster Squad”, “The Amazing Spider-Man”), who has not been nominated for an Oscar herself, will assist McFarlane’s break from Academy Award tradition.
The OMFGGossip.com blog says McFarlane also established the “Oscar Experience College Search,” offering U.S. college students planning a career in the film industry with a chance to win a trip to L.A. and participate behind the scenes in the Oscar ceremonies.
According to OMFGGossip.com, this year’s Oscar nominees will be announced at 8:30 a.m. EST (5:30 a.m. PT) Thursday morning from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' headquarters in Beverly Hills. The Academy Awards will be presented at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on February 24.
The OMFGGossip.com blog site will bring readers a complete update on Oscar nominees as soon as they are announced.
