Academy Will Announce all 24 Categories Live
This is the best news out of the Academy in a while. On January 15th aka Oscar Nomination Morning, all of the nominees in all 24 categories will be announced live. Before the big announcement as normal, Alfonso Cuaron and J.J. Abrams will announce most of the technical categories. Then the usual announcement with Cheryl Boone Isaacs and Chris Pine will then do the big ones, and a few technical ones as well. All I have to say about this is: It is about damn time. An Oscar nomination is an Oscar nomination no matter which category it occurs in. It is a shame that the technical nominations always get sidelined to a press release without the press, and the drama of the announcement. I hope that this is successful and that it continues from here on out, because it should have been this way all along. Six days folks. Six days.
