Much is being made of movies like "Argo" and "Beasts of the Southern Wild" as Oscar buzz heats up. Oh, and "The Master," too, but when Daniel Day-Lewis is involved in a movie, it has to be in the mix. If not the film, the performance. The only drawback for him now is that we expect it. In his latest, "Lincoln," he is the 16th president, and he teams with Steven Spielberg, who is also not stranger to award season.
Here is the latest trailer for the highly-anticipated film, which will be released in November.
Speaking of Oscar, it was announced today (Sept. 13) that a familiar name and face returns to the show. For the third year in a row, Don Mischer will direct the 85th Academy Awards telecast.
The announcement was made by telecast producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. In a Motion Picture Arts and Sciences release, it was noted that this marks the continuation of Don Mischer Productions' multi-faceted relationship with the Academy, which includes producing the Oscars® red carpet pre-show and producing the annual Governors Awards.
"For a very long time, we had always hoped to work with Don Mischer," said Zadan and Meron. 'His talent and reputation are unsurpassed and we're so happy he will be our collaborator on the 85th Academy Awards."
"I am so very excited to be directing the Academy Awards again this year and to be working with creative producers like Craig and Neil," said Mischer. "All of us at Don Mischer Productions are also thrilled to be producing the Oscar® pre-show, and most significantly to continue a wonderfully gratifying relationship with the Academy."
