'The Artist' Wins Best Picture? Joan Collins May Have Spoiled The Academy Awards
Not like you need further proof that "The Artist" is a shoo-in for Best Picture, but Oscar voter Joan Collins may have actually just ruined the non-surprise you are about to experience on Sunday at the Academy Awards
"Oh, yes," Collins said when asked about any Oscar predictions, "but I'm not going to tell you."
She then added, "I'm a voter, so I'm not allowed to say. But I think it's called 'The Artist.'"
Collins is part of the old-guard Oscar voters that have come under fire since a Los Angeles Times expose on Sunday highlighted the advanced age and lack of diversity among Academy members. Per the study, Oscar voters are 94 percent white, 77 percent male and have a median age of 62. Based on that make-up, conventional wisdom is that "The Artist" -- a silent and black and white film about an aging silent movie star pushed aside by the advent of talkies -- will take home many awards on Sunday night, including Best Picture.
See if Collins did indeed spoil the big award by tuning into the Oscars on Sunday night starting at 7 p.m. EST on ABC.
