Here Are Your Nominees For The 94th Annual Academy Awards

The 94th annual Academy Awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, March 27th, and like last year, it’s everyone’s guess how this ceremony will work. For the third year in a row, there shall be no official host, so there will be no host-related controversy. No one wants the gig, man! Fortunately, there will be plenty of enthusiasm from Leslie Jordan and Tracee Ellis Ross, who’s showed up and read nominations with more verve than anyone could reasonably expect at 5:15 PST.

This year, one can expect the nominations crop to stay a little weird, given that movies largely went to streaming or refrained from releasing at all, due our ongoing global situation. One can expect to see plenty of Power of the Dog (starring Benedict Cumberbatch and directed by Jane Campion) and some Licorice Pizza (Paul Thomas Anderson doing his thing well as always), along with some nods for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune (with its sweeping cast; seriously, everyone’s in it). And maybe, just maybe, Jared Leto’s House Of Gucci performance will not only receive a Razzie nom but also a surprise Academy nod. Here’s how things turned out:
