As thrilled as everyone is about the return of Billy Crystal as host, it's quite possible that folks haven’t yet recovered from last year's Anne Hathaway-James Franco debacle. Her super-wattage energy and his almost defiant indifference made for a noxious cocktail that inspired Roger Ebert, Peter Travers, The Hollywood Reporter and 57% of Americans polled to declare it the worst Oscar-cast they'd ever seen. And no matter how you measure it, the ratings were down at least 10 percent.
Making matters worse was the initial selection of Brett Ratner as producer, a choice that furrowed the brow of just about everyone this side of Ratner's mother. But the world seemed to make peace with it when he announced that Eddie Murphy would be hosting. Then Ratner started spouting homophobic slurs during a Q&A; the next thing you knew he was canned and Murphy was suddenly bowing out. The 84th Annual Oscars had gone down in a ball of flames three months before they happened.
"Help" star Viola Davis, who plays a maid, is locked in a close battle with Meryl Streep as former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady." Davis won at the Screen Actors Guild Awards this year, and that has her tipped for Oscar victory over Streep, a two-time past winner and 17-time nominee.
"In a tight race, the academy goes to the performance that moved them more," Karger said. "Yes Meryl put in a great performance, but it's Viola Davis who has the emotional pull."
Michelle Williams has an outside chance with her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in "My Week with Marilyn," but most pundits see her fading fast. The other nominees are newcomer Rooney Mara in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and Glenn Close in little-seen, gender-bending "Albert Nobbs."
The other big boost for "Help" is in the supporting actress category where Octavia Spencer is widely expected to win over "Artist" star Berenice Bejo. If both Spencer and Davis take home the gold for "The Help," it will be the first time in Oscar history two African American women in the same film have won.
It turns out, Bridges had to design costumes both in black-and-white and color. “There was always the chance that the film would be seen in color,” says Bridges. “Partially because of the quality of the [color] film [stock], and some of the film markets in the world don’t accept black-and-white films. So it was a double-layered challenge, because you wanted something that could work in color but also needed to read a certain way in black-and-white.” Bridges had his team put together color boards of all the possible fabric colors, and photographed them in black-and-white. When designing a costume, he would choose the value of grey he wanted first, and then discover the color of the fabric he’d selected. “We would discover that, oh, that’s bright coral! It was kind of a backward way to choose fabrics.” Bridges then consulted Sears catalogues, films, and still photos from the period to get a sense of what people were wearing, and how it looked.
This costume is for Peppy’s first encounter with George Valentin, at the premiere for his latest big silent film. “Whenever [the characters are] a star, they are very high contrast,” says Bridges. “When you’re not a star, we were trying to do more medium values. But for the sake of pulling our leading lady out of the crowd, I used the white hat with the black bow and I used the white color with the little bow to create a little contrast in there so your eye goes to her in the midst of all the madness.”
