Beyonce's Oscar Buzz


X
Bee season is in full swing. It cannot be denied how strategic Matthew Knowles is when handling his daughters career. She currently has the #1 album in the country, as well as the #2 and #4 singles on the Billboard charts. And by next Monday, there is a good chance she will part of the #1 movie at the Box Office Cadillac Records.

Beyonce's acting has always come under fire. But critics' reaction to her performance in "Cadilac Records" has been pretty positive. In fact she received her first nomination for Best Supporting Actress (Cadillac Records) from the Satellite Awards a few days ago.

Now sources are forecasting that the Academy Awards may have some surprises for you in 2009:
X
"After this year’s Academy Awards, the question was whether the Oscars were still relevant or if they were going the way of art galleries and modern dance, perceived as too elite and avant garde to appeal to the masses.
X
Of last year’s best picture nominees, none cracked the Top 10 at the box office and only one ("Juno") topped $100 million. Numerous reasons were cited, including studios obsessed with movies calculated to open big, art be damned, and the presence of boutique subsidiaries such as Paramount Vantage and Warner Independent Pictures to release “specialty” and “prestige” fare.

Well, the buzz is that Oscar night 2009 might look quite different.A-listers on short lists for Oscar contention include Nicole Kidman, Brad Pitt, Clint Eastwood, Will Smith, Angelina Jolie and, seriously, Beyonce Knowles for her role in “Cadillac Records.....
X
This isn’t any concerted effort to help Oscar avoid going the way of the Tony Awards in terms of its national spotlight. But there are a few trends that might boost the awards’ star power and box-office relevance this year and in years to come."

Well whether they are turning over a new leaf or she actually deserves the trophy, I hope she wins. Although I know it will get ALOT of tounges waggin.....
