The Golden Globes, BAFTAs, Critics Choice Awards and SAG have all handed out their plaques of recognition in honor of leading filmmakers and actors across board. Popular names such as Glenn Close, Olivia Colman, Rami Malek, Mahershala Ali, have all had a fair run in the award season race, whiles the red carpet department have been eccentrically lit by the appearances of the round nominee Lady Gaga, Lupita Nyong’o, Timothee Chalamet and Emma Stone through-out the season.
Just like in all scenarios the ultimate one crowns it all, it’s now time to witness the Oscars, which is regarded the biggest night in Hollywood and most of all the ‘red carpet’ of all award shows in the world. To keep up with the season’s biggest night, here is a compiled detail regarding everything Oscar this year. From the scheduled date to who is nominated for what.
Where and When will the Oscars take place?
The 91st Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, February 24 at the Hollywood’s Dolby Theater, a place which has been a home for the Oscars since 2002.
Who will host the show?
With the Academy’s failed attempt to find a host after Kevin Hart’s fallout from the hosting duties, the show will happen without a host, but at least the Academy has promised a fun-filled evening.
Who is presenting?
Aside the traditional routine of having the previous year’s winners for the acting category present, the Academy has lined up a tall lists of past Oscar winners and regular show honors as presenters this year. The likes of Jennifer Lopez, Brie Larson, Charlize Theron, Emilia Clarke and more will mount the Oscar stage to present to some lucky winners of the night.
Who is performing this year?
Audience will be treated with performances from all five original song nominees. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper will perform ‘Shallow’ from A Star is Born, Kendrick Lamar and SZA will sing ‘All the Stars’ from Black Panther, Jennifer Hudson will perform ‘I’ll Fight’ from RBG, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings will perform ‘When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings’ from The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and a special surprise guest has been tapped to perform ‘The Place Where Lost Things Go’ from Mary Poppins Returns.
Who has been nominated?
‘The Favourite’ and ‘Roma’ lead the lists of nominated films this year with 10 nods each. The multiple nominees bench has Lady Gaga seated on top with her best actress and original song nomination for ‘A Star is Born’, whiles ‘Roma’ Director Alfonso Cuaron is also nominated for best director and best picture. First time nominees in the acting race include Yalitza Aparicio for Roma and Rami Malek for Bohemain Rhapsody.
Who will walk the red carpet?
Lucky enough, the nominees’ lists together with called-on presenters parade themselves with some red carpet favorites and as such we are in to have a glamorous red carpet entry for the evening.
