The Civil War saga "Lincoln" leads the Academy Awards with 12 nominations, including best picture, director for Steven Spielberg and acting honors for Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones.
For the first time ever, "Live With Kelly" broadcast an "After-Oscar Show" live from the Hollywood and Highland Theatre. The show invited faithful fans from all over the country to attend, including about two dozen from the Central Valley.
Too predictable. That's the persistent complaint about the Academy Awards, whose drama generally is sapped by a glut of earlier award shows that spell out what films will win at the Oscars before the show starts.
