Will Emmanuelle Riva, the oldest nominee in Academy Awards history, pull off the unlikely upset in the Best Actress category and take the trophy away from Silver Linings Playbook’s Jennifer Lawrence? Can Daniel Day-Lewis cap his streak of memorable 2012 awards season acceptance speeches with one more rousing Lincoln moment? And will Seth MacFarlane zing and dance ABC to solid overnight ratings?
On Monday, February 25 at 8:30 a.m. PT / 11:30 a.m. ET, we’ll know the answers to these questions and much more. Join Gold Derby maestro Tom O’Neil, KCRW producer Darby Maloney (The Business), TVNewser senior editor Alex Weprin, GalleyCat editor Jason Boog and FishbowlLA co-editor Richard Horgan for a special post-Oscars Google+ hangout on the Mediabistro home page, FishbowlLA and at Google+. (You can also click into that link to request a reminder notification of the event.)
As a side note, O’Neil and Horgan will on Monday morning also finally be able to see how they fared with their respective Gold Derby predictions and determine who among the site’s entertainment journalists panel can lay claim to overall bragging rights. As O’Neil has recently pointed out, the 2012 Best Picture race has been one of the craziest in recent memory at his end, with four contenders having at various points occupied Gold Derby’s experts-predicted top spot.
We hope you can join us this Monday (hashtag: #mbhangouts). As an added bonus, the participants will endeavor to at no point talk about who they’re wearing.
