Nominations for the three short film categories for 87th Academy Awards® will be announced on January 15, so we’ll have information about the nominated titles up on our website soon after. See all the nominees before the winners are declared at the Academy Awards Ceremony on February 22! In addition to the shorts programs, Cornell Cinema will be showing Best Foreign Language Film Submissions from Sweden (Force Majeure, Jan 30, 31); the Philippines (Norte, the End of History, Mar 1); Turkey (Winter Sleep, Mar 7 & 8); and Russia (Leviathan, April 10 & 11). And this year, patrons are invited to watch the Academy Awards Ceremony in the Willard Straight Hall Bear’s Den, located in the Ivy Room, where there are two large screen monitors. The ceremony begins at 7pm, but patrons are encouraged to come earlier to catch some of the pre-show red carpet activities. The Bear’s Den offers a selection of beer and wine, as well as pizza and more. Check our website closer to show date for more details about the evening, including prizes for those who correctly guess the evening’s winners!
