Emma Watson and Bill Murray: Presenters at the 2014 Oscars(Read article summary)
Emma Watson, Bradley Cooper, and others will present awards at the Oscar ceremonies on March 2. Emma Watson stars in the upcoming film 'Noah.'
â€śNoahâ€ť star Emma Watson will be one of the presenters at the Academy Awards along with nominees such as Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper as well as other actors including Bill Murray and Kerry Washington, according to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Watson starred in the â€śHarry Potterâ€ť film series as the clever witch Hermione Granger and is set to star in the film â€śNoahâ€ť with Russell Crowe as the title character. â€śNoahâ€ť is set to hit theaters on March 28.
Watson also appeared in the 2012 film â€śThe Perks of Being a Wallflowerâ€ť and the 2013 film â€śThe Bling Ring.â€ť
â€śNow that Emma Watson has moved on from the â€śHarry Potterâ€ť films, Iâ€™m looking forward to seeing this remarkably intelligent actress appear in movies not involving magic and potions and walking through walls,â€ť Monitor film critic Peter Rainer wrote of the actress in his review of â€śWallflower.â€ś
â€™The Perks of Being a Wallflowerâ€™ isnâ€™t such a great showcase for her â€“ derived from the popular 1999 novel by writer-director Stephen Chbosky, itâ€™s an earnest indie about a troubled teen, Charlie (Logan Lerman), and his various troubled confederates Ââ€“ but it does demonstrate that Watson can stand on her ownâ€¦ Watson doesnâ€™t lose her cool, or her warmth, in a role that might easily have devolved into terminal sappiness.
Recently, Watson served as guest editor of the Wonderland magazine and conducted an interview with â€śPotterâ€ť author J.K. Rowling. The interview shocked some fans with its inclusion of an admission by Rowling that sheâ€™d had second thoughts about whether Watsonâ€™s character Hermione and Ron Weasley would have been happy together romantically, but Rowling may have soothed some fans by then saying that she thinks the pair â€świll probably be fine.â€ť
This yearâ€™s Oscar ceremony will air on March 2 and finds films such as â€ś12 Years a Slave,â€ť â€śGravity,â€ť â€śAmerican Hustle,â€ť â€śHer,â€ť and â€śThe Wolf of Wall Streetâ€ť facing off for the Best Picture prize.
