The 91st Academy Awards take place on February 24 (February 25 as per IST) and we’re going to be glued to the television to witness the prestigious awards night unfold. Like every year, the Oscars will take place at Dolby Theatre yet again this year. However, as against last year, Oscars 2019 will be hosted by no one in particular. The decision came after The Academy announced Kevin Hart would be the host but he stepped down following a slew of inappropriate tweets that resurfaced online. On Sunday/Monday, winners from 24 categories, which includes Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Director, will be announced starting 8 pm ET/5 pm PT on ABC.
Movies like Black Panther, Vice, The Favourite and Green Book are nominated for Best Picture. Roma and The Favourite lead the nomination list with 10 nominations each. Glenn Close has been nominated for Best Actress for The Wife along with Lady Gaga for A Star Is Born, Olivia Colman for The Favourite, Yalitza Aparicio for Roma, and Melissa McCarthy for Can You Ever Forgive Me?
As for the men, Christian Bale has been nominated for Best Actor for his portrayal of Dick Cheney in Vice. Rami Malek as the Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody impressed the jury as well. Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born, Willem Dafoe in At Eternity’s Gate, and Viggo Mortensen in Green Book are also running for the award.
Who will take home the golden trophy? We’ll find that out soon.
