Once again, Don Mischer will direct the Academy Awards telecast in the upcoming year. Mischer has been directing all elements of the Oscars for three years now, including the Governors Awards and the Oscar red carpet preshow. For the past two years, he has served as the show’s producer as well as director. To boot, he’s garnered Emmy nods for his directing of the show for the past two years, giving last year’s show a total of 6 nominations – the most for any TV special. If you’ve been a fan of the past three years of Oscar, chances are you will enjoy this year’s show. With the predicted nominees, it’s sure to be an Oscar to remember.
