This year’s Oscars took place in Dolby Theatre, Los Angeles and took place on the 24th of February, 2019 on ABC at 8 pm E.T.
For the second time in the Oscars 90 years history, there was no host due to the fact that Kevin Hart, who was originally planning to host, stepped down in December due to homophobic tweets resurfacing from as far back as 2009.
‘The Favourite’ and ‘Roma’ were in lead, both with ten nominations and ‘Vice’ and ‘A Star is Born’ were extremely close behind with eight. Rami Malek won the Golden Globe and BAFTA for his role in Bohemian Rhapsody.
‘Black Panther’ is the first superhero movie in a decade to be nominated for the Best Picture Award in a decade!
‘Mary Poppins Returns’ received 4 nominations so it didn’t get as many nominations as the original which had a staggering 13 nominations and won 5!
