Oscars nominations 2019: What time is the announcement, when are the Academy Awards and other things to know


The Oscars are just around the corner, and this morning we’ll finally find out who’s nominated!


Tracee Ellis Ross and Kumail Nanjiani will be making the announcement at 8:20 a.m. ET | 5:20 a.m. PT.

When are the Oscars?

The 91st Academy Awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, Feb. 24, 2019, and will air live on ABC.

As in years past, the ceremony will take place at the Dolby Theatre in the heart of Hollywood.

Who is hosting the Oscars?
There will be no host this year, according to a Variety report.

Kevin Hart was initially announced as the show’s host in early December, though he dropped out following online backlash against years-old homophobic tweets. After speculation that he might reconsider, Hart appeared on Good Morning America to say definitively that he would not be hosting and that he is done talking about the controversy.

Who will be nominated?
While there is no way to predict exactly which films will be nominated, nominations and wins at other awards shows such as the Golden Globes and the Ciritcs’ Choice can provide clues. This is good news for fans of several films that won big or scored surprise wins, including Roma, Bohemian Rhapsody, Green Book and Black Panther. Other films that have high odds for multiple nominations include A Star Is Born, The Favourite and Vice.

On Dec. 17, the Oscars released shortlists for nine of its 24 categories. The announcement narrowed the field to just a handful of potential nominees in categories such as Best Original Song and Best Visual Effects.
