Be in the front row as the likes of Nomadland, Sound of Metal, Promising Young Woman and five other titles hold their breath for that Best Picture winner announcement.
Once again, the Academy Awards will rely on award presenters to propel the ceremony forward throughout the night, with the Oscars remaining hostless since 2018. This year the ceremony will predominantly take place outdoors. Complying with Covid-19 guidelines, you can expect to see this year’s nominees in the courtyard of Los Angeles’ downtown railway station, Union Station.
While this year’s ceremony will be a far more intimate affair than previous years, there will still be many of your favorite stars in attendance, including Zendaya, Regina King, Brad Pitt, Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon and others lined-up to present awards to this year’s winners.
It’s fair to say things will look a little different than previous years. But with the likes of the Golden Globes and BAFTAs already having taken place with varying degrees of success, it’s fair to say the Academy Awards will still hold strong to its reputation as an evening of paying tribute and celebrating the incredible talent within the movie industry. So pop on your party gear and get yourself an Oscars live stream this weekend.
