PHOTO CALL: The 86th Academy Awards- Inside the Winners' Circle
04 Mar 2014
The 86th Academy Awards were presented March 2 in Los Angeles. The Disney animated musical "Frozen" won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film, while songwriters Robert and Kristen-Anderson Lopez took the honor for Best Original Song.
Ellen DeGeneres hosted the Academy Awards, which were presented at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center.
Produced by Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, the evening featured several performances of interest to theatre fans. Tony winner Idina Menzel performed the Oscar-winning song "Let It Go" from "Frozen," while Oscar nominee and Grammy winner Bette Midler, who was recently on Broadway in I'll Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers, performed on the Academy Awards for the first time (singing "Wind Beneath My Wings").
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
