85th Watch Academy Awards 2013 Online Live Streaming Oscar 2013
Today’s the big show. Will “Argo” take home best picture as expected? Will host Seth MacFarlane make us laugh? Will Joan Rivers have catty remarks to make about the salaciously attired celebrities who rule the red carpet?
Only one of those things is a certainty, but producers are promising an entertaining show regardless — with the most live performances ever. Barbra Streisand will sing for the first time in years. Let’s just hope it wraps up under four hours — or however long the first “Hobbit” movie ran.
Academy Awards 2013 live streaming: On the final day of our Oscar preview, A&E Buzz takes a look at tonight’s telecast, who’s predicted to win and what to expect (and dread) on the red carpet.
The host: Seth MacFarlane might be the hardest working man in show business. He’s spent months getting ready to host tonight’s Academy Awards, where he’s also a nominee for the original song for his hit movie “Ted.” He’s producing and writing three animated TV shows, plus voicing many of their key characters. “I’m a little exhausted,” the 39-year-old confessed in a recent interview.
The Producers: Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have run out of rehearsal space. Dressing rooms, too. The award-winning production duo is planning the most performance-filled Oscar show ever. They promise a “wow moment” in each of its 13 acts, so the show demands a more dynamic stage and more dressing rooms and rehearsal time than previous Oscar productions.
The presenters: Jennifer Garner, Jane Fonda, Kristen Stewart and Kerry Washington are some of the latest names added to the list. (The Hollywood Reporter)
The speeches: A study of Oscars speeches over the past 60 years has revealed Harvey Weinstein is the person who has been thanked most with a total of 12 mentions - more than God. (Daily Mail)
Trophy help: You know those tall, leggy beauties that normally carry the Oscar trophies so the stars can present them? They’ve been replaced this year by aspiring filmmakers. Six college students from across the country won a contest to help present the Oscar statuettes this year.
Predictions: Surprises and snubs on nominations day held the promise of an unpredictable Academy Awards night. But things have settled into the usual predictability, with clear favorites emerging in key categories. Associated Press movie writers Christy Lemire and David Germain prefer to disagree, but they’re in harmony on the top prizes for tonight’s show.

Style preview: In the fashion world, the Oscars hit at an opportune time: Just before prom and wedding seasons kick in. So it’s no surprise that the dresses paraded on the red carpet have an effect on what twirls across the gym floor and down the church aisle. But this year, the Oscar Effect will reach even more wardrobes, those of young girls and older women, as the youngest- and oldest-ever best actress nominees, Quvenzhane Wallis and Emmanuelle Riva, vie for the trophy — and inject freshness into two wedges of the formal wear market that are woefully lacking, or so stylists, designers and editors hope.

Fashion disasters: Over a generation, citizens of popular culture have watched as a fundamental source of pleasure has vanished from view: the red-carpet fashion “disaster.” So this list is a look back at a mostly extinct phenomenon, and like any endeavor tinged with grief, it is highly subjective and slightly irrational.
