This Sunday (26/02) happens the 84th edition of the Oscars, an event that rewards the best in cinema. At this year’s party, many of the nominees are 3D films, so it is not difficult to take a guess: this will be the edition with the most technology-based winners.
To get an idea of how the Academy is prepared to receive the 3D winners, Wolfgang Puck, the official chef of the post-premiere ball, created what he calls “3D Dessert” (“dessert in 3D”, in Portuguese) No one knows for sure what this invention is about, but according to the website Slash Gear, it seems that the candy give the illusion of being bouncing off the table. According to Puck, who made the dessert using a pair of 3D glasses, guests will have to enjoy the treat with the glasses as well.
One of the favorite statuette for Best Film “The Invention of Hugo Cabret”, Martin Scorsese’s first 3D film and record holder of the year in nominations. There were ten in all, among them the best film and best adapted script. However, interestingly, another film that was highly rated in this edition was “The Artist”, which is far from 3D technology. Incidentally, the film is quite the opposite, as it was shot in black and white and silent. The film is a setback in terms of technology, however, it is competing side by side with one of the most elaborate productions in Hollywood. A paradox, isn’t it?
