Hollywood’s biggest night is just around the corner, and a slightly-delayed awards season gets in full swing on Tuesday morning with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announcing the nominees for the 94th Annual Academy Awards.
Because the Golden Globes were pretty much boycotted in 2022 by everyone that matters, we can’t really use those awards to project who will be feted on Tuesday morning by the cultural elite that choose who receives Hollywood’s highest honor. The movement to more films than ever being released via streaming also makes forecasting a bit more challenging.
But all the answers will come in starting at 8:18 a.m. ET tomorrow, with Leslie Jordan and Tracee Ellis Ross enlisted to host the brief nomination announcement. They will air on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “ABC News Live” and will be available via live stream on Oscar.com, Oscars.org, and the Academy’s Twitter, YouTube and Facebook accounts.
