The Academy Awards have been a monumental celebration in the industry of motion pictures for 82 annual ceremonies now. The impact that reigns from even being nominated for an award, let alone winning one, can move actors, actresses, producers, directors, or studios into an entirely new level of recognition. Being tied into an Oscar consideration has brought some of the relatively unknown into super-stardom.
For the past century of film and broadcast, nothing has had more of an effect upon the success of those involved in the movie industry, more than the epic Oscar nomination and victory. Only the most excellent of the realm are invited to participate in this catastrophic award show. This year, for 2010, we expect no less than perfection.
The celebration is slated to take place on March 7th of 2010, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. Slated to be televised in the United States on ABC networks. Actors Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin are assigned to host the awards ceremony. Martin will make his appearance as host for the third time, after previously presiding over the 73rd and 75th ceremonies, while Baldwin will host the show for the first time.
The official nominees for the 82nd annual Academy Awards will be announced live on Tuesday, February 2, 2010 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California, by Tom Sherak, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) and a guest announcer.
New this year, is an upgrade from the usual five Best Picture nominations, to ten total Best Picture nominations. This is an increase that will allow many other popular films to be considered for the "Best Picture" award, which is always the "Main Event" so to speak of the ceremony. A bit of fact chasing here, is that from 1932 to 1943 there were ten nominations for "Best Picture" (in 1934 and 1935, in fact, there were 12), but for the ceremony honoring 1944's best movies, the Academy switched that number to the current five which has held up until this year. The increase is due to the extremely large amount of successful box office films which were premiered in 2009.
We certainly expect this years ceremony to be high profile. 2009 was a record breaking year for the entertainment industry, with many films such as Transformers 2, District 9, Avatar, Terminator Salvation, Star Trek, Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, Inglourious Basterds, Up, Public Enemies, Twilight: New Moon, and many others, all reaching an extreme amount of international box office sales.
Considering the unprecedented and success of 2009, it's looked back upon by critics as one of the best years in motion pictures in nearly a decade, even while the world economy is struggling. Further showing that if they produce quality films, then people will pay the price to see the films.
One thing is certain, the 82nd annual Academy Awards will be highly rated and viewed all over the world, and it will clarify which of all the great films of 2009, were considered the best by the insiders of Hollywood.
As soon as the nominees are announced, we will post them here on ET Articles, exclusively for our community. Respect to the Oscar award and the Academy Award ceremony, as for many years it's created a dominant showing amongst the best in film, and it's been a breakout leap for so many in Hollywood. Let's only hope that 2010 offers each of us as many great films as 2009 did, and thus far from the way this year has kicked off, it's looking more and more like it will be another major year for highly anticipated films.

|I'll be interested to see which one brings home best picture. My vote goes for District 9. Thanks for the info xxxOBSCENExxx, can't wait for the nominees. :)|
waiting for the nominees list. :)
thanks for your effort obs, the big bro . . !
|defiantly a good yr for the movie industry, and a great yr for ET. More than likely avatar will get best pic, since it came late in the yr. Thanks for the read OBS|
|Great read!!! I dunno about Avatar tho wasnt that good a film in my opinion|
|I agree. Avatar was sort of "overly" hyped in my opinion. Not saying it was a "bad" film, but with all the hype, I feel it wasn't that great of a film. The only thing I really liked, were the mechs in it. District 9, is by far my favorite film of 2009, and second would probably be Inglourious Basterds, but those are just my personal opinions :) It will be VERY interesting to see what movies bring home the awards none the less.|

|Avatar was great...not enough killing for the mainstream, but the technical work was the best to date. If you consider everything you saw was humans running around wired as if they were making a new madden. It was a great new world...|
|Awesome article. I will keep my eyes open for the list of selected actors/actresses. District 9/ Inglorious Bastards/ Avatar. My choices for best pic. Twilight: New Moon was ok in my opinion, and everyone loved it also. That might get an award or two. We will see.|

|Yay Screener season!! I also have to agree with District 9, But that's because I believe every sci-fi movie should win an Oscar. :D|

|This is a family tradition in our house hold,,2009 was one of the best years ever for new movies,,,This is the first year i was able to really see all the movie i wanted to because of ET and the first year i owned a computer. Thanks for making a bad year a little better,,Favorite movie of the year,,,,The hurt locker,,,,|
|Oooh! The Hurt Locker, now that was a HIGHLY underrated film. There were alot of those this year :)|

|Totally agree with ya Obs, The Hurt Locker was way under rated.....There were some really great movies this past year....looking forward to see how the awards play out|

|I don't see District 9 winning Best Picture, it's not best picture material even though it's on my top 10 list. And seeing that The Hurt Locker won everything it was nominated for everywhere might make it an Oscar winner. I certainly hope it takes Best Picture, Director, and Actor. If not, give the Best Picture to Tarantino, actor to Clooney, and director to the Coen Brothers.|

|other movies the family really enjoyed were,,,,,,the last house on the left,,,,Dollans Cadillac,,,,,,Where the wild things are,,,,,We hope theses movies win some kind of award,,,,,but they probably wont,,lol|
|Yup.I think District 9 might take the cake, but i really enjoyed watching "Law abiding citizen" too.. these too will go on my my all time fav list....|

|"Law Abiding Citizen"? The movie that doesn't make sense and has no actual story?|
Btw, just watched "Where the Wild Things Are" the other night and it was pretty damn good.
|I still think they robbed Mickey Rourke,he should have gotten one for his role in The Wrestler,he's a highyly underrated actor and I'm looking forward to seeing him in Iron Man II and the up-coming Stallone action film The Expendables :)||
