Billy Crystal just joined the ranks of "people who've kissed George Clooney." Guess the media will reporting that they're engaged tomorrow.

Oscars 2012: Fans go wild for George Clooney on the red carpet

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
George Clooney and Stacy Kiebler walk the red carpet at the Academy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 26, 2012.

David Germain Associated Press

LOS ANGELES—Best actor nominees George Clooney and Jean Dujardin hit the Academy Award red carpet Sunday night to the delight of fans in the bleachers outside the Hollywood & Highland Center, the first group of A-listers to arrive for the ceremony under a glorious California sky.

Dujardin hopes to become the first Frenchman to win best actor and his The Artist is favoured to become the only silent movie to take the best-picture prize since the first Oscar ceremony 83 years ago.

Christopher Plummer is in line to become the oldest acting winner ever at 82. Meryl Streep might join the elite acting three-peat club with a third Academy Award.

RELATED: Live coverage of the red carpet

Along with Streep, Hollywood’s big night on Sunday has plenty of returning stars, too, with past Oscar winners and nominees such as Clooney, Brad Pitt, Glenn Close, Michelle Williams and Nick Nolte in the running again.

The show also has a returning favourite as ringmaster: After an eight-year absence, Billy Crystal is back for his ninth time as host.

Because of a change in voting rules, the Oscars feature nine best-picture nominees for the first time, instead of the 10 they had the last two years.

Competing against The Artist for the top honour are Clooney’s family drama The Descendants; the Deep South racial tale The Help, featuring best-actress nominee Viola Davis and supporting-actress favourite Octavia Spencer; and the Paris adventure Hugo, from director Martin Scorsese.

Also in the lineup: the romantic fantasy Midnight in Paris, from writer-director Woody Allen; Pitt’s baseball tale Moneyball and his family saga The Tree of Life; the World War I epic War Horse, directed by Steven Spielberg; and Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock’s Sept. 11 story Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.

Hugo leads with 11 nominations, with The Artist right behind with 10.

Spencer’s a virtual lock for supporting actress, having dominated earlier film honours for her breakout role in The Help as a brash maid in 1960s Mississippi. The same holds true for Plummer, the front-runner for supporting actor for his role as an elderly widower who comes out as gay in Beginners.

The lead-acting categories are where the drama lies. Best actress shapes up as a two-woman race between Davis as a courageous maid leading an effort to reveal the hardships of black housekeepers’ lives in The Help and Streep as British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady.

The record-holder with 17 acting nominations, Streep has won twice and would become only the fifth performer to receive three Oscars. Jack Nicholson, Ingrid Bergman and Walter Brennan all earned three, while Katharine Hepburn won four.

It’s been almost three decades since Streep last received an Oscar, for 1982’s Sophie’s Choice. Though she has the most acting nominations, she also has the most losses — 14. Another loss would be her 13th in a row.

Best actor also looks like a two-person contest between Clooney as the distressed patriarch of a Hawaiian clan in The Descendants and Dujardin as a silent-era superstar whose career tanks as talking pictures take over in The Artist.

It would be the second Oscar for Clooney, who won the supporting-actor prize for 2005’s Syriana. While French actresses have won before, among them Marion Cotillard and Juliette Binoche, Dujardin would be the first actor from France to receive an Oscar.

Dujardin was picked as best actor Saturday at the Spirit Awards honouring independent film, where “The Artist” ruled with four prizes, including best picture and director for Michel Hazanavicius, who is favoured for the same trophy at the Oscars.

The Artist has dominated Hollywood honours this season, winning key prizes at the Golden Globes and awards shows held by the Directors, Producers and Screen Actors guilds.

“This means a lot, because it’s a small movie. It’s not expensive. We did it with small money,” Hazanavicius said backstage at the Spirit Awards. “And it’s black and white and silent.”

If The Artist comes away with the best-picture trophy, it would be the first win for a silent film since the war story Wings was named outstanding picture at the inaugural Oscars in 1929.

The 84th Academy Awards show begins at 8:30 p.m., broadcast live from the Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles.

Loved the opening with Billy, I find I have really missed him over the years. Everyone knew Octavia was going to win she has won everything she has been nominated for. Good show so far although the skit with Gweneth and Robert Downey Jr was fairly lame.

I loved the opening with billy and george! did anyone catch the camera panning to george & stacey when cirrque du soleil was on stage? George had a polite smile on his face (finger on chin or similar) but stacey had the most blank look i've ever seen.

I'd love to see george win an oscar but am completely torn because christopher plummer is in same category. (am I wrong? I adore christopher plummer)

Agree. She forgot her smile at home.
Plummer is nominated for best supporting role. George for best actor.

Ok sort of off topic....Hugo is winning big but NOONE is mentioning Brian Selznick who wrote and illustrated the book....if it weren't for his brilliant illustrations and story they would not be winning......

thanks for letting me vent....I was in kids books and it is driving me nuts!

its got to be tough sitting there for so many hours. I heard someone say once that you were stuck in a chair for hours and couldn't even go to the bathroom. in those circumstances I think i'd be a bit lacking in response here & there also

I just checked next mrs clooney you are right, christopher plummer is up for supporting actor.

Yay!!!! 2 of my favorites can win in a single night! (love max von sydow also)

believe it or not I haven't' seen descendents yet, will next weekend.

(OMG christopher plummer won!!!!!!)

You can go to the bathroom during commercial breaks and they have seat fillers for if you don't make it back in time. Wonder how you get the job of seat filler??

Ah, George and Grant miss out on their best screenplay nomination to the guys from The Descendants.

Bitter sweet moment for him, I guess.

They thanked George for his great interpretation of their words.

Michel Havanicious just won best director for The Artist. I think usually best director, best film and best actor tend to go for the same film.

Not looking good for George.

George Clooney & Billy Crystal Kiss During Oscars Opening!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]




George Clooney and Billy Crystal share a kiss in this 2012 Oscars opening spoof of The Descendants.

In the opening clip, the 50-year-old actor begs Billy to come home.

“You’ve got to do it Billy,” George said, before planting a kiss on a hospital bed-ridden Billy.

“That was extremely loud and incredibly close,” Billy said on stage after the segment! Haha!

You know I was wanting George to win but I LOVED Jean Dujardins speech and his fierce joy at winning.

I think George's best is yet to come and I know he will win more awards. I'll still go to the local IMAX and watch The Descendants (next weekend likely)
