Oscars 2019 Winners
variety.com: The year’s biggest night in movies is officially here.
In the running for the evening’s biggest prize, best picture, are “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Green Book,” “Roma,” “Vice,” “The Favourite” “Black Panther,” “BlacKkKlansman,” and “A Star Is Born.”
Best actress contenders include first-time nominee Yalitza Aparicio, Olivia Colman, Melissa McCarthy, Glenn Close, and Lady Gaga. Close has won the Golden Globe and SAG Award for her role in “The Wife,” so all eyes will be on her to see if she can pull in her first win in seven nominations.
Leading men Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Rami Malek, Viggo Mortensen, and Willem Dafoe are in consideration for the coveted prize of best actor, with Malek favored in predictions.
The night marks a rare instance in which the awards are going without a host in the wake of Kevin Hart’s departure following backlash over his homophobic remarks that were resurfaced from years ago. It was only one of several controversies the Academy faced in the run-up to the show. It saw a firestorm over its decision, which it later rescinded, to move four behind-the-camera categories including cinematography and film editing to commercial breaks in order to try and keep the broadcast at three hours.
A star-studded list of presenters will take the stage, including Chef José Andrés, Dana Carvey, Queen Latifah, Congressman John Lewis, Diego Luna, Tom Morello, Mike Myers, Trevor Noah, Amandla Stenberg, Barbra Streisand, and Serena Williams introducing the nominees.
The evening will also feature musical performances by Queen and Adam Lambert, as well as Jennifer Hudson, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, and Bette Midler.
