The Top Ten Academy Awards Websites
By the staff at ClassBrain.com


Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
At the beginning of each year, Oscar fever grips the world. We wait with baited breath to see who will be nominated on January 27, 2004. We argue about our favorites with our friends throughout February. Then, we all huddle around our televisions to see the ultimate winners, which air this year on February 29, 2004.

This year there are some amazing films in contention! 2003 was a good year for moviegoers. The 76th Academy Awards will decide the fate of movies such as The Return of the King, The Last Samurai, 21 Grams, and Cold Mountain to name just a few. Will The Lord of the Rings final installation of The Return of the King finally win best picture? Will Tom Cruise, Sean Penn or Russell Crowe garner the best actor award, or will some other actor steal it away from them? The next couple of months will be spent pondering hours of questions, such as these. Then, when the Academy Awards night finally arrives, this top ten list will give you everything you need to enjoy your debates, conversations, and Academy Award parties.
