    Oscars special

     

    Enjoy Oscar-winning and nominated movies onboard Cathay Pacific

     

    Experience red-carpet glamour, celebrity appearances and compelling performances with our up-to-the-moment selection of 2013 Oscar® winners, including Argo, Lincoln and Life of Pi

     

     

     

    Here’s a quick recap if you missed the Academy Awards night on 24 February. Argo beat early favourites Lincoln and Life of Pi to win Best Picture. Competing against nominees Steven Spielberg (Lincoln) and Michael Haneke (Amour), Ang Lee won his second Best Director award for his 3D extravaganza Life of Pi, also this year's biggest winner with 4 awards. Lincoln's Daniel Day Lewis became the first man to win the Best Actor award three times, Jennifer Lawrence was named Best Actress at the age of only 22 for her role in Silver Linings Playbook. Skyfall’s title song by Adele marked the first time a song from a James Bond film has won an Oscar – a well overdue win.

     

    You can watch the cream of the Oscar movies crop onboard Cathay Pacific flights in March, as well as nominated films including The Master, Anna Karenina and Hitchcock. Additionally, for flights equipped with the on-demand entertainment system, we have selected a few classic winners from previous years, including Key Largo (1949), Bullitt (1969), Atonement(2008) and There Will Be Blood (2008), letting you choose from 23 of the 2013 nominated films, as well as 16 past winners.

     

    What’s more, we are running an online competition for all film buffs. Simply watch the preview video and name the actors in the leading roles from the 2013 nominated films onboard for your chance to win fabulous prizes. We will also be running a series of Oscar-themed stories including trivia of the 2013 winners and profiles of leading figures in Asian cinema on our website.
