How excited are you for a pending awards ceremony that is still over a month away? Very?
If so, you can watch the nominations for the 90th Academy Awards at 8:22AM ET today, January 23rd. The announcement will be live-streamed from the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, where it will be 5:22AM! Technical awards like cinematography, costume design, sound editing, and visual effects are announced first. The major award nominations — including the acting awards, best documentary, best screenplay, best director, and best picture — will be announced starting at 8:38AM ET.
Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for potentially history-making moments: if Rachel Morrison is tapped for best cinematography for her work on Mudbound, she would be the first woman to even be nominated in that category in the Academy’s 90-year history. Greta Gerwig could become the second woman in 90 years to win best director? Perhaps the two men who won acting awards at the Golden Globes earlier this month and who have both been accused of (or admitted to) grotesque personal behavior will not be nominated? It could be a very big year for the ol’ Academy, so tune in.
The Academy Awards will air on Sunday, March 4th, and will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
