Into its 90th year celebrations, this year the Academy Awards has a stunning collection of movies nominated in Best Picture category and several brilliant performances have earned their place in the nomination list.
Movies like Get Out, The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, have got viewers’ attention but it is the winner list that will tell us which movie and performances won over the Academy.
Hosting the award show for the second consecutive year, Jimmy Kimmel will take the center stage and would hope no Oscar goof-up takes place. Speaking of goof-up, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, who became the talk of the town for announcing the wrong Best Picture winner last year, are set to return to present an Oscar award this year.
They will be joined by a star-studded list of celebrities. These include 2017’s Best Actress winner Emma Stone, Best Supporting Actor winner Mahershala Ali, Best Supporting Actress Viola Davis, Jennifer Garner, and Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman and Lupita Nyong’o.
Although they might not have found a nomination, actors from blockbuster movies of last year will take the center stage and present an award.
These include Star Wars: The Last Jedi cast, including Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac and Kelly Marie Tran, Wonder Woman Gal Gadot and Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Zendaya to name a few.
