ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones join in the Oscar celebrations for the 85th Academy Awards Ceremony. Also on the Red Carpet, power couple Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter. Academy award winner Charlize Theron also put in an appearance. At age 85, Emmanuelle Riva is the oldest Best Actress nominee for her performance as a retired music teacher felled by a series of strokes in "Amour." Many pundits believe this year is an opportune time to recognize the French actress for her five-decade film career. Steven Spielberg's presidential movie "Lincoln" heads into Sunday's ceremony with a leading 12 nominations, followed by Ang Lee's shipwreck tale "Life of Pi" with 11, French Revolutionary musical "Les Miserables" and romantic comedy "Silver Linings Playbook" with eight apiece, and hostage drama "Argo" with seven. The Oscar winners are chosen by some 5,800 movie industry professionals who are members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.\ The Academy Awards ceremony, in its 85th year, will be broadcast live on ABC television in the United States, and to more than 225 other nations.
