Watch the Oscar Nominations Live on The Mouse Castle

By Tim Callaway

Neil Patrick Harris will
host the Oscars on
February 22nd.
So, who wants to watch the Oscar nominations with me? The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will announce the nominees at 5:30 a.m. Pacific on Thursday (yeah, I know that's just hours away). You can catch the live stream right here at The Mouse Castle.

Boyhood, Birdman, Selma, The Theory of Everything and The Grand Budapest Hotel are all expected to garner their fair share of nominations. We'll, of course, be keeping an eye on films with a Disney connection. Big Hero 6 is a shoo-in for an Animated Feature nomination, but will Into the Woods get a Best Picture nod? A number of nominations in technical categories (Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Visual Effects and Film Editing) could go to the Marvel contingent of Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Maleficent, meanwhile, could be recognized for Makeup, Costume Design and Production Design.

Actor Chris Pine (Into the Woods), Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs, and directors Alfonso CuarĂ³n (Gravity) and J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) will make the announcements from the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. In an unusual move by the Academy, the nominations in all 24 awards categories will be announced during the presentation. In past years, the live announcement have only included the major categories.

I can hardly wait. Let's meet for breakfast and Oscars, shall we?
