Deco Features: Oscar Preview
The Oscars is of course Hollywood's biggest party. From who won what to who wore what. And who Betty White will hook up with at Vanity Fair this year. But while actresses are skipping meals to fit in a size negative 12, and practice politely applauding for when they don't win.
Crews are putting the finishing touches on the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. Rolling out the red carpet, setting up the big plastic Oscar statues, scrubbing the graffiti off the walls, getting ready for Hollywood's biggest night.
Family guy creator Seth mcfarlane is hosting the show for the first time. He's got a plan to keep the Oscar audience entertained for three long hours.
Of course, not everybody will go home with an Oscar. But Wolfgang puck is making sure no-one goes home hungry. The Governor's Ball is where stars like Bradley Cooper will sit crying into his lobster risotto when he loses to Daniel Day Lewis. Oh we're just kidding. We don't know who's going to win. But it's probably going to be Daniel Day Lewis.
WOLFGANG PUCK: "Im here for 35 years. I know from the old time from Orson Wells to Jack Lemmon to the new guys like Ben Affleck and so on. They all come to our restaurant, so its really for me and its not a big deal."
Ben Affleck's "Argo" is the favorite up for best picture.
Les Miserables, Zero Dark 30 and Lincoln are also strong contenders for the award. Many believe lead actress is a toss up between "Amour's" Emmanuelle Riva, "Silver Linings's Jennifer Lauwrence and "Zero Dark Thirty" star Jessica Chastain.
So whether you tune in to see the teary eyed acceptance speeches or just the spectacle of the red carpet, you can bet it's going to be an Oscar night for the history books.
