Movie studio mogul Harvey Weinstein says he’s "sure" that newlywed Salma Hayek will be at the Oscars on Sunday.
"I hope so — I’m sure," he told OK! at his designer wife’s Georgina Chapman‘s Marchesa Presentation on Feb. 18 at New York Fashion Week, where guests gushed over the designers’ glamorous dresses and enjoyed endless champagne at the Moet & Chandon bar.
Salma, 42, who just married her on-off boyfriend — and father of 17-month-old daughter, Valentina — French Luxury brand billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, 46, in a private Valentine’s Day ceremony in Paris, would be making her first appearance as a married woman at the ceremony to support best friend Penélope Cruz, who is nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
"I think it’s exciting," Harvey tells OK!, adding that he’s got high hopes for some of his nominated stars. "I think we have a good chance with Kate Winslet, a very good chance with Penelope Cruz."
Of course, the Hollywood heavyweight is realistic about his chances for the top prize. "If The Reader won Best Picture, it’d be the greatest upset in Oscar history," he says. "But I’d be up for that!"
