‘Gravity’ Starts 2014 Oscars Campaign With Premiere at the Venice Film Festival

Gravity 2014 Oscars
Warner Bros.

On the surface, Alfonso Cuaron’s ‘Gravity’ seems like it could be a major contender for the 2014 Oscars. Lead actors George Clooney and Sandra Bullock each already have Oscars on their shelves. Cuaron, himself, has been nominated three times (for ‘Children of Men’ and ‘Y Tu Mama, Tambien’) and appears to be an Academy favorite. Bu,t does Warner Bros. view ‘Gravity’ as an awards contender, or as a white-knuckle sci-fi thriller from a masterful filmmaker with two A-list stars at his disposal?

News that dropped this morning points to the former.

2014 Oscars: Seth MacFarlane Asked to Host Again

2014 Oscars Seth macFarlane
ABC

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.

Life of Pi
20th Century Fox

'Life of Pi' won the 2013 Oscar for Best Cinematography with director of photography Claudio Miranda taking home the Academy Award for his work. The win was mildly controversial since a) Roger Deakins was again denied an Oscar for his beautiful work on 'Skyfall' and b) 'Life of Pi' was largely constructed in the digital space (the film also took home the Best Visual Effects Oscar). Any existing debate over the 'Life of Pi' win took a big leap forward this morning when veteran cinematographer Christopher Doyle spoke out against the Oscar saying, "it’s a f---ing insult to cinematography." And he was only getting started...

2013 Oscars: Seth MacFarlane Says There is “No Way” He’ll Host Again

Will MacFarlane host Oscars again?

There's been no shortage of controversy following the 2013 Oscars, most of it dealing with host Seth MacFarlane's particular brand of comedy, which is either hilariously crude or mean-spirited and misogynistic, depending on who you ask. But with ratings higher than last year's ceremony (40.3 million people tuned in to watch 'Argo' win Best Picture), you'd wonder if the Academy would decide that further outcry was worth it and ask the 'Family Guy' creator back for a second time. However, MacFarlane himself preemptively answered that question on Twitter.
