Don't be late for your Oscar party, because this year that means you might miss three marquee awards. This photo of the officlal Academy Awards program, first tweeted by Will Mavity, reveals that this year both screenplay awards and Best Supporting Actress will be given out right off the bat. Every tech award is clustered in the middle of the program—that's when party guests can concentrate on the heavy drinking. Supporting Actor happens after the animation awards. Then, before the usual cavalcade of the big four awards (Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Picture) we get the two music awards (presumably delivered in song by Dave Grohl). Plan your Oscar pool—or, better yet, your Oscar fantasy draft—accordingly!
The complete order:
Makeup and Hairstyling
Live Action Short
Foreign Language Film
Also of note: That tiny fragment of the presenters list on the left side of the photo, which sure makes it seem as though we'll be getting a surprise appearance from Woody and Buzz Lightyear. C'mon, academy! They're the Pixar characters who've already had their Oscar moment. In this of all years you couldn't invite Frozone?
