We are a few hours away from the 85th Annual Academy Awards tonight. As it was reported 2 weeks ago, Meryl Streep’s confirmed she’s going to attend [Post]. It was also announced that she was at the Oscar rehearsal yesterday [Tweet], an article confirming it as well [Link]. So most probably we’re going to see her tonight!
The Oscars show’s been planning a salute to movie musicals that could include some of the biggest names in the business. Academy Award executives are hoping to persuade the likes of Meryl Streep, John Travolta, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway to participate in the celebration.
A couple days ago an article related to the celebration was published. Unfortunately Meryl wasn’t in the list of names, who’s going to participate. Just a reminder, she’s been asked to perform for the Oscars from 2009 but however she didn’t sing after all, so probably we’ll see her only as a presenter of the Best Actor category this time!
The 2013 Oscars ceremony honoring the films of 2012 is set to take place Sunday at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The pre-show broadcast will begin on ABC with red carpet arrivals at 4 p.m. PST (7 p.m. EST) and will be hosted by Lara Spencer, Jess Cagle, Kristin Chenoweth and Kelly Rowland.
