Stanford led the pack at the Student Oscars with two winners, according to a press release from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Anthony Weeks and Theodore Rigby — both M.F.A students — were selected for the documentary category.
Before last Sunday’s Oscars, I was super excited to see how Palo Alto native James Franco would do as co-host. Sure, Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes was probably the funniest/most painful hosting experience there’ll ever be, depending on how you saw it, but I had a feeling that James Franco’s turn might end up being even weirder.
Despite the earlier critical buzz surrounding “Black Swan” and “The Social Network,” which won Best Picture at the Golden Globes, it will be near impossible to stop the momentum of “The King’s Speech,” which recently swept the Producers, Directors and Screen Actors Guild Awards.
With the Oscars just a little more than a week away (March 7), it’s time for me to catch up on all of the critically acclaimed movies I failed to see in theaters.
