We have been keeping track of the features screening at the Cannes Film Festival, listening for buzz surrounding possible 2014 Oscar contenders that could be holding coming-out parties on the Croisette.
Well, the awards needle starting moving on Saturday evening when Joel and Ethan Coen’s latest, ‘Inside Llewyn Davis,’ started screening for critics and crowds. So will this be another awards contender for the Coens?
At this year Oscars, Seth MacFarlane caused quite a controversy as he hosted the ceremony with a number of risque bits and jokes (most notably the "We Saw Your Boobs" song from the opening monologues) but that was exactly what Oscar producers hoped MacFarlane would bring to the normally staid production. The 'Family Guy' creator previously said he has no interest in returning, the producers seemed to have liked the controversy (and the ratings that went with it) and MacFarlane has officially been invited to return to host the 2014 Oscars.
We know the 2013 Oscars only recently aired, but it's never too early to find out when we'll be able to enjoy (or be annoyed with) them again. The Academy has announced the dates for the 2014 Oscars and even the 2015 Oscar broadcast.
