Jean TellerAward shows really aren’t my favorite; I find them too long, too embarrassing and too egotistical. The one I often make an exception for is the Academy Awards, though I usually record it and then fast-forward through the icky parts.

The 85th Academy Awards will be on your television beginning at 6 central Sunday, February 24. Hosted by Seth MacFarlane, the show promises to be everything Hollywood. So tune in early for the red-carpet extravaganza, and stay for the top (and last) Oscar of the night, the Best Picture.

This year, nine films are vying for Best Picture: Amour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty.

 Argo stars and is directed by Ben Affleck.

 Les Miserables, a musical, stars Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe.

I’ve seen three so far (Argo, Les Miserables and Lincoln), and hope to see Beasts of the Southern Wild before the 24th. Friends have given good reviews to Django Unchained, Life of Pi, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty.
