The Oscar Project
It's time to find out which films have been nominated for Academy Awards in this weird year and this year the husband and wife pairing of Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas will be announcing the nominated films.
Recent announcements have been brought to us by people including actors John Cho and Issa Rae last year, Tiffany Haddish and Andy Serkis in 2018, and directors Guillermo del Toro and Ang Lee in 2016.
If you're inclined to watch the nomination announcements, you can do so on YouTube below. They will also be streamed live via Oscars.com, Oscars.org, Twitter, and Facebook.
If you can't watch live on Monday morning, you can watch the nominations after the fact or come back here for the full list of nominees once they are announced. I will also be providing category by category reviews over the course of the next month leading up to the 93rd Academy Awards in April 25th.
I hate to drive people to a source for Oscar information other than this blog, but with the arrival of The Academy on the writing platform Medium, I have to at least share the information.
I say arrival, but that's not a fair statement since The Academy has been posting on Medium for over a year. I hadn't been clued into their writing on the platform, but have added them to my list of "Follows" after reading a pair of articles on this morning.
At the Academy: JOKER gives a wonderful background about how the world of that film was crafted and how the creators decided on how the world should look along with how the Joker himself should move throughout that world. There is even an interesting bit about the score for the film that I haven't heard of before.
In At the Academy: THE IRISHMAN, there are quotes from Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese about how they came back together after many years of not working together. It seems it was a film that was destined to be made, it was just a matter of time.
Rest assured, I will be keeping tabs on this page for more movie news and background about upcoming films and share those musings here as they relate to things I'm discussing.
I'm just a film buff who wants to watch great movies. Where else to find the best, than the list of those nominated by the Academy each year?
