With the Academy Awards just a few days away, this Sunday's anticipated ceremony is all the buzz this week. At an event benefiting the global education campaign 10x10, the night's host, Freida Pinto, revealed her Oscar favorite.
"One of the films that I was truly surprised with...[and] truly entertained was 'Argo,'" the actress said of her favorite film of the year. "It was an all-around entertaining film for me. ...I was on the edge of my seat throughout the film. Good luck to the film."
The Immortals actress was host of the D.J. Night event hosted by Vanity Fair and L'Oréal Paris and also narrated part of 10x10's film Girl Rising, which highlights the organization's main motif that education can change someone's life.
Also, a narrator of the film was 16-year-old actress Chloë Grace Moretz, who divulged an actress that she'll be rooting for at the Oscars.
"I really, really hope Anne Hathaway wins because I love her and she's the sweetest girl you'll ever meet," Moretz said of the Les Misérables actress nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
With many great films and performances nominated for the same awards, it's difficult not only for the Academy but fans as well to pinpoint one film or performance that exceeds the others.
"I'm rooting for them all," 90210 actress Jessica Lowndes said. "I know it's generic and kind of what everyone says, but as an actress I just get so excited for everybody. It's such an accomplishment. ...I just get happy for everybody, so I'm excited for everything."
