On Sunday, Feb 24, the 91st Academy Awards will be hosted at the famous Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. While actor Kevin Hart was originally announced to be the host this year, he stepped down following a controversy. It was later decided that there will be no host this year, making it the first time since 1989 that the event had no host.
Eight movies have been nominated for “Best Picture” this year, with experts predicting it may come down to Green Book or BlacKKKlansman. Other predicted wins are Alfonso Cuaron for “Best Director” for the movie Roma, and Glenn Close for “Best Actress” in The Wife. Christian Bale (Vice) and Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) are competing for “Best Actor.”
No matter the results, the Oscars will most likely continue to be one of the most viewed award shows this season.
