Other than that, I would not be surprised if Clint Eastwood's AMERICAN SNIPER pulls off a sort of Grace Kelly over Judy Garland/Crash over Brokeback Mountain surprise victory. I would've given the Oscars to Judy Garland (for A Star Is Born) and Brokeback Mountain. But that's just me.
To get you in the mood for Hollywood Prom Night, here are some short clips with Oscar recipients. Kirk Douglas received a special 1996 Academy Award. His son, Michael, was Best Actor for 1987's Wall Street. His first Oscar came for producing One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Best Picture of 1975. The legendary star of Spartacus, Lust for Life, Paths of Glory, Ace in the Hole and The Bad and The Beautiful was my sole guest on the premiere edition of my VH1 talk show. Here, we chatted about his Oscar-winning son.
