J-Law set to win next March?
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) and ABC have announced the date of the 2014 awards, as well as the 2015 ceremony, with the 86th bash taking place on March 2, and 2015’s show arriving on February 22.
It is barely a month since Jennifer Lawrence picked up the award for Best Actress, but many will see the popular starlet as a possible contender in 2014, with a number of meaty roles lined up.
If the star pulls it off and wins again in 2014, she’d be the first actress to achieve the feat since Luise Rainer in 1937, so the odds must be against her, especially as Meryl Streep has an eye on equalling Katherine Hepburn’s four gongs with highly anticipated movie August: Osage County.
Jen has a trick up her sleeve though; she’s set to rejoin the director and star who helped her to her first win this year, David O. Russell and Bradley Cooper, in an as yet untitled project based on the infamous FBI investigation into corruption known as the Abscam scandal.
With a Christmas release date slap bang in the middle of awards season, it could provide Jen with a great chance of another win. Then if that fails to wow the members of the Academy she’s also starring in Serena, alongside Cooper once more.
On the male side of things it could be an open year, with awards glutton Daniel Day-Lewis having one of his periodic years of carpentry, shoe making and relaxation away from Hollywood.
As for the host on that March evening next year, we know one thing for certain: it won’t be the controversial 2013 host Seth MacFarlane.
