• Kumail Nanjiani, Tracee Ellis Ross to announce Oscar nominees Tuesday morning

    Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross will host the 2019 Academy Awards…nominee announcements bright and early on Tuesday, January 22. The pair will announce the Oscars nominations live from the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Los Angeles, at 8:20 a.m. ET/5:20 a.m. PT. Set your alarms and your coffee timer now!

    The nominations will be available on The Academy’s digital platforms and local broadcasters.

    Tiffany Haddish crushed last year’s presentation to rave reviews and many are probably confused why she’s not hosting the now-hostless Oscars.

    Nanjiani and his wife Emily V. Gordon were nominated for a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for The Big Sick in 2018. Ross stars in the critically acclaimed blackish on ABC.

    The Oscars has no host, but at least the nomination announcement does.

    The 24 award categories are scheduled to be announced in two rounds. The first set of announcements will begin at 8:20 a.m. ET: Actor in a Supporting Role, Actress in a Supporting Role, Costume Design, Film Editing, Original Score, Animated Short Film, Live Action Short Film, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing.

    10 minutes later, the remaining category nominees will be announced: Actor in a Leading Role, Actress in a Leading Role, Animated Feature Film, Cinematography, Directing, Documentary Feature, Documentary Short Subject, Foreign Language Film, Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Picture, Visual Effects, Adapted Screenplay, Original Screenplay, Original Song, and Production Design.

    The full list of Oscar nominees will be listed on Oscar.com after the announcement. The 91st Annual Academy Awards will be broadcast live by ABC on Sunday, February 24 from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.
