The Academy Awards are just days away and expectation is building about what movie will take the Oscar for top prize of the night: Best Picture.

Nine movies from 2011 have been nominated for the prize this year. The much talked about silent film The Artist, - which was already crowned best picture by the Producers Guild of America and the Directors Guild of America - is one of them.

Also nominated are: The Descendants, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life and War Horse.

The critics' consensus so far is that the Oscar will go to The Artist. If that happens, this would be the first time in more than eight decades that the top award goes to a silent movie.

Beyond the prizes, viewers of the telecast will be able to see additional, unique views of the festivities and celebrities online. Academy Awards organizers have allowed for the strategic placement of more than 20 cameras everywhere from the red carpet to backstage to the Governors Ball. The cameras will be made available at the Oscar.go.com website.
