The glittering ceremony of 90th Academy Awards is all set to take place today. It is going to be another memorable night for all the cinema lovers as some of the finest performances and films will be awarded. Celebrities in their stylish attires will sizzle the red carpet of Oscars 2018. Before you watch the award show in front of your TV screens, here’re all that you need to know about Hollywood’s biggest night.
Popular star Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the award night for the second time. People can expect some rib-tickling jokes from him. The winner will be decided on the basis of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences votes.
The Shape of Water is leading the nomination list with 13 nods. Dunkirk has eight nods whereas Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri has seven nominations. Some of the stars like Mary J. Blige, Margot Robbie and Timothée Chalamet are nominated for the first time in Oscars.
Gal Gadot, Chadwick Boseman and many of your favourite stars will be presenting the award. It was a tradition in Oscars that the winner of the last year’s Best Actor award present Best Actress award this year but this time this has been changed. In 2017, Casey Affleck won the Best Actor Award, but he has taken out his name from the presenting duties. It is yet to be seen who will be presenting the Best Actress Award this year.
The 90th Academy Awards will be aired on ABC at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT.
