This year, Hollywood's biggest night has become the industry's worst headache. Thanks to a series of failed attempts to shorten the length of the broadcast and goose falling ratings, the Academy Awards head into Sunday night with plenty of negative press and a lot of question marks. But as the old cliche states, the show must go on! And fortunately, this year's Oscars ceremony could make history in a number of ways (and not just because it's the first time the show will have no host in 30 years). Will Alfonso Cuarón's Roma not only become the first foreign-language film to ever win Best Picture — but also the first time a Netflix movie takes the top award? Can Marvel's Black Panther buck 91 years of tradition and become the only comic book movie to earn a Best Picture trophy? Or will problematic movies like Green Book or Bohemian Rhapsody surprise viewers in the same way Crash did at the 2005 ceremony? Sunday's Oscars will have all the drama and intrigue of the best thrillers — and TV Guide will have it covered.
What time is the red carpet? Where is the broadcast airing? Who's presenting? Who's expected to win?
Alfonso Cuarón's Netflix release Roma and the black comedy The Favourite led all films at the 91st annual Academy Award nominations with 10 nods each, including citations for best picture. While many of the nominations aligned with precursors and predictions, there were still plenty of shocks.
Who will win on Sunday night? Here are eight Oscar predictions we'd take to the proverbial bank (or an office Oscars pool) — and one Hail Mary pick we hope comes true.
To say the buzz surrounding the 91st Annual Academy Awards ceremony is bad would an understatement. The show has been besieged by missteps and public relations fiascos for months; normally the belle of the awards season ball, this year's Oscars broadcast is shaping up about as well as Fyre Festival. Here are five ways to keep next year's Oscars from being a flaming garbage fire.
These stars are this close to winning all four prestigious awards: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. Will this year's Academy Awards induct some new faces into the EGOT club?
