Oscars 2013. Which are the best movies of the moment?

Oscars 2013: Anna Karenina

Oscars 2013: Anna Karenina

Predictions by Isabel del Rio: Everybody has a favorite film and preferences for Oscars 2013. Today, Sunday, it’s a good day to go to the cinema with our family or couple, or to sit quietly at home to see a good movie and maybe, afterwards, to discuss a little with some friends about Oscars 2013. In my house, we usually make bets.

One of the favorite movies should be ‘Lincoln’ by Steven Spielberg, starring by Daniel Day-Lewis as United States President. Spielberg and Day-Lewis have already won Oscars and they are solid candidates in 2013. Furthermore, the topic suits very well with the traditional spirit of the Oscars.

Personally, I really like (in fact, this is my bet) ‘Anna Karenina’ based on the novel of Tolstoy (well, I like Tolstoy very much and period films). Anway, a scandalous love triangle in Imperial Russia results suggestive in the year of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’. Eroticism is served! Director: Joe Wright. Starring: Keira Knightley (perfect for the role).

‘The Great Gatsby’ directed by Baz Luhrmann could also be a serious candidate. Re-makes are now in vogue (remember ‘True Grit’) and Leonardo DiCaprio deserves one Oscar.

Other solid candidate is ‘Brave’, a computer-animated fantasy film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. Here and for the first time in 25 years, Pixar has rewritten its animation system to make the most complex visuals possible. It is the first movie to use the Dolby Atmos sound format… A hard task that deserves a great reward!

Same happens with another super-production, Hollywood style, ‘Les Miserables’. The film is based on the musical of the same name by Alain Boublil, Claude-Michel Schonberg and Herbert Kretzmer, which was an adaptation of Les Miserables, a novel by Victor Hugo (Yes, too much films based on classic novels: Does this mean something?). Directed by Tom Hooper and starring by Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Samantha Barks, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter and Aaron Tveit, this movie has a lot of possibilities.

The exotic ‘The Life of Pi’ based on the novel by Jann Martel published in 2001 is also in the lists of possible winners of Oscars 2013. Maybe because is different. Directed by Ang Lee and with Irrfan Khan, and (one of my favorite actors) Gerard Depardieu.

Of course, I also like ‘The Dark Night Rises and ‘The Hobbit’: An Unexpected Journey’ and I’m not very interested in ‘Cloud Atlas’, ‘Argo’, ‘Gangster Squad’ or in ‘Django’, in spite of the high quality of the casting.

And well… which are your bets? All can be possible in the Oscars and surprise is one of the words to define these rewards.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
