    The Oscar nominations follow the lead of the 2022 British Academy Film Awards which were announced last week, with Dune, The Power Of The Dog and Belfast also leading those nominations with 11, eight and six respectively.

    The 94th Academy Awards, held at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, will air Sunday, Maart 27 on ABC at 8 nm. EN.

    Laas jaar, the global pandemic meant a socially distanced ceremony held at Los AngelesUnion Station. Ratings plummeted to an all-time low of 9.85 miljoen kykers.

    The immediate social media reaction as the nominations were announced focused on the lack of diversity in main categories, specifically Leading Actress.

    Tweeters pointed out there are no persons of colour in the category, with many questioning why acclaimed performances such as Rachel Zegler’s lead in West Side Story and Tessa Thompson in Netflix’s Passing were not included.

    Jennifer Hudson was also notable in her absence, missing out for her role in Aretha Franklin biopic Respect.

    Hudson was among the frontrunners for the category before the nominations were announced. Some even predicted that she could earn two nods, one for Leading Actress and one for Original Song for Here I Am.

    Those two nods would have made the multi-talented star the first Black woman to earn nods in three separate Oscar categories, having previously won a supporting actress Oscar in 2007 for her role in Dreamgirls.

    ‘This category is always so white #OscarsSoWhite its 20 years since a black actress won…. God knows how many more it will take….. @IAMJHUD is so robbed she at least deserve a nomination. #ShameOnYouOscars.

    ‘Thanks @TheAcademy of another beige Best Actress list. I’m out for another year. There’s a reason ratings continue to decline year after year. #oscarsshowhite.

    It was previously announced in January that Glenn Weiss will direct the telecast for the seventh consecutive time, while film producer Will Packer is serving as producer, and Shayla Cowan, the chief of staff of Parker’s production companies, was named co-producer, Volgens Die Hollywood-verslaggewer.

    Craig Erwich, president Hulu Originals & ABC Entertainment, maintained there will be a host for the 2022 Oscars, which will be a first since 2018 when Jimmy Kimmel had the honor of leading the ceremony that year, as well as in 2017.

    Sover, The Academy hasn’t made an official announcement as to who will play host on Hollywood’s biggest night of the year. Following a television ratings tumble, the Academy have decided to reinstate a permeant host after using a rota of guest presenters, with sources claiming bosses were keen to enlist Ricky Gervais.

    A source told The Mail On Sunday: ‘Things are so desperate this year that the Academy [the organisation behind the awards] even sent out a tweet asking people who they wanted as a host. A lot of fans said Ricky Gervais. There is growing talk that he should be offered the gig.

    ‘He’s the one man who could save the most boring show on television. The Oscars are always too long and viewers tune out when you get all these self-entitled celebrities going woke and banging on about their pet causes. Ricky would be a breath of fresh air.
