The Oscars official YouTube channel doesn’t allow you to see their many videos without going there. So go there.
Some of the best ones are the meetings of the nominees with the press. You can get a feel for how different the nominees are from each other, for one thing. Here are a few links:
Woody Harrelson, for example, looks a little out of place in a suit and tie, as you can see here.
Woody was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in The Messenger.
Then check out this video of the smooth-talking Austrian actor Christoph Waltz, the villain from Inglourious Basterds.
Gabourey Sidibe, in front of a room full of reporters here in her video, looks like she’s been talking to the media for years. She made her debut in Precious
Maggie Gyllenhaal, a nominee for Crazy Heart, talks in her video about her bond with co-star Jeff Bridges.
And in his video, Bridges looks a little like he’s playing the scene in The Big Lebowski where The Dude gets nominated for an Oscar.
