The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) is going to have a big show in early 2019, the 91st Academy Awards ceremony. The prestigious ceremony will cite the best films released in 2018 and is set to happen at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California.
Date, time, venue
The officials have announced the date of the ceremony which happens on February 24, 2019. There will be 24 categories that will be in the Academy Awards. AMPAS will prospectively present the awards to the best films with the most votes. ABC – American Broadcasting company is the official broadcaster of the Academy Awards. The producers of the big event are Glenn Weiss and Donna Gigliotti. Meanwhile, Weiss will be the director as well.
Glenn Weiss and Donna Gigliotti are the replacements of the previous directors. The producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd did not take the honor to produce Oscar because of the mixed receptions and declining ratings from the past events. The way we look, many agree that it should happen to make a better Oscars event next year.
Oscars 2019 can be different.
The upcoming Oscars 2019 could be different from the previous Oscars events because the officials add a new category. Back then on August 8, the AMPAS announced the new category creation namely Best Popular Film. It is a reward for the best popular films of the year. However, the decision triggered negative reactions from many critics and film enthusiasts. Later on September, the Academy stated that the new category creation was delayed to examine the possibilities.
There have been speculations about who will take the helmet of the event. Some names are emerging on the surface including Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen DeGeneres, Tiffany Haddish, and so on. The upcoming Oscars is a bit different from the previous one. Back then, we updated the announcement of the Oscars host on May, nine months before the 2018 Oscars ceremony. Long before that, the officials have been pitching and approaching Kimmel to be the host of the service. There are dozens of other possible choices of the host that you can also vote.
The other name that pops up was Hugh Jackman, Will Ferrell, Ricky Gervais, Kevin Hart, Queen Latifah, Justin Timberlake, as well as Oprah Winfrey? Who do you think is going to host the ceremony? Let us know what you think.
