The Oscars, red carpet, fashion, celebrities and most importantly, movies — it all takes place on Sunday, Feb. 24.
WISN (Channel 12) will air the 85th annual Academy Awards at 7:30 p.m. The network's red carpet coverage begins at 3:30 p.m. in select markets.
After winning awards at the Sundance and Cannes film festivals, "Beasts of the Southern Wild" — produced by a Wauwatosa native — is in the running for the biggest prize of all: an Academy Award for Best Picture.
The movie received three other Oscar nominations on Thursday: Best Director (Benh Zeitlin), Best Actress in a Leading Role (Quvenzhané Wallis) and Best Adapted Screenplay (for Zeitlin and Lucy Alibar). Wallis, who is 9, is the youngest nominee ever for the Best Actress award.
