Oscars: Pop Star to Movie Star

This Sunday Evening 24th February (or wee small hours of 25th), the red carpet in Hollywood will be rolled out for The Oscars.

The pinnacle of the Awards season, the ultimate goal for any wannabe actor or actress, directors, Crew. However If the film they starred or worked on was a Turkey, there is also the Razzies.

What ever award they win, there will be someone writing an acceptance speech. There is no better recognition than bagging yourself one of those illustrious Gold Statues from The Academy. Celebrated in Hollywood since 1929 and if your a sport The Raspberry’s celebrating the worst since 1981.

Have you noticed one thing there is a trend? The amount of musicians/pop stars who have turned to acting?

This weekend’s awards one of the biggest popstars in the industry will be hoping she’ll win Best Actress. Can Lady Gaga nab herself a Oscar for her powerhouse performance in A Star Is Born?

You can go through the decades and you’ll find other pop-tastic actors attempted to win a statue like Brittany Spears in Crossroads.

Do you know 26 musicians have had 37 Academy Award acting nominations? How many  won? Eight. Bing Crosby was the first in 1944 right up to Jennifer Hudson with Dreamgirls.

The list is one of endless possibilities. All focus on Sunday will be on Lady Gaga to win best actress and 14/1 to win. Would ever consider online betting to flutter on if she would win?
