That said, the Academy Awards presentation, or as it’s more commonly called, the gay Super Bowl, is watched by hundreds of millions of people around the world. Everyone speculates on who will be nominated, who will win and why, including, inevitably, the British bookmakers.
Overlooked is a personal choice: Robert Pattinson. No, not for the “Twilight” series, but for “Cosmopolis.” Dismissed as glorified mannequin, Pattinson took on a no-budget film adaptation of an impossible-to-adapt book from an impenetrable author adapted by an avant-garde director. As a Wall Street Master of the Universe who never leaves his chauffeured limousine, Pattinson carries the movie the way Michael Jordan carried the Chicago Bulls.
Still, it’s not surprising the voters overlooked Pattinson. He’ll just have to keep taking chances while he rakes it in with mega-grossers. (See DiCaprio, below.)

After releasing, via a Twitter video, that there will be a surprise for all the Twihards out there, Bruce furthered “Robert, Taylor, and Kristen will not be on the show but, the next best thing is going to happen and it will blow people minds.” Although Cohen wouldn’t reveal the surprise, he did let on what it is not, including it’s “not a live element at all…not technically CGI…and not the trailer for ‘Breaking Dawn.’

According to Academy awards producer Bruce Cohen, Twihards should prepare themselves for a surprise. Although it has not been confirmed whether Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart or Taylor Lautner will attend, he has the following words for fans:
“For all Twilight fans we have a surprise in the show on Sunday night, if you like the three movies, I have three words for you … Check out the show”

From Twilight Examiner:
One of the co-hosts for the event is James Franco, who, you might recall, is an outspoken Twilight enthusiast. There’s even a connection between his post as host and his former interest in portraying a Breaking Dawn character. It should be interesting to see what they drum up for this! (Note that Bruce Cohen is the same guy who brought Franco on board for the job.
The 83rd Academy Awards are set to air Sunday, February 27, 2011.

If, on Oscar night 2010, Robert Pattinson showed up, looking drop-dead sexy in a tuxedo, and premiered an exclusive first-look at The Twilight Saga: Eclipse live on the stage of the Kodak Theatre, would you tune in to watch? Matthew Belloni, a columnist at The Hollywood Reporter, proposes that this year’s Oscar producers do exactly that to help boost ratings for the annual awards show. It’s an intriguing idea, but would it work?
When Titanic won Best Picture in 1998 it was the highest-rated Oscars in history, and the ratings have trended downward ever since. Last year’s telecast got a makeover and a new host, Hugh Jackman, and got a 10 precent boost in ratings. Belloni thinks having, say, five stars premiere exclusive footage/trailers of their new films over the course of the Oscar evening would get you all fired up to watch again. (Apparently, when the MTV Movie Awards showed exclusive footage of New Moon earlier this year, ratings shot up 92 percent among the coveted youth audience.)
I think it’s fair to say that the Oscars would get a ratings boost from premiering Eclipse footage, but a) Would you keep watching after you got your Jac0b-Edward-Bella fix? and b) Are there any other movies on the horizon that you’d watch the Oscars just to see footage of? Spider-Man 4? Russell Crowe in Robin Hood? Ryan Reynolds in The Green Lantern?
