If you need another reason to set your alarm clock on nominations morning, here are two: Tracee Ellis Ross and Leslie Jordan will be hosting the presentation and announcing the nominees for the 94th Oscars. How's that for a wake-up call?
Ross is a bona fide multi-hyphenate, Black-ish star and six-time Emmy Award nominee, with recent film turns in movies such as The High Note and Little. Jordan is an actor-turned-viral sensation whose Instagram videos kept us laughing all quarantine long. He appeared in last year's The United States vs. Billie Holiday and currently stars on the sitcom Call Me Kat.
Nominations will be announced on Tuesday, Feb. 8. The presentation kicks off bright and early at 5:18 a.m. PST / 8:18 a.m. EST and will be streaming live on Oscar.com and Oscars.org, as well as the Academy's Twitter, YouTube and Facebook. Tune in to find out whose names our hosts with the most will read off – maybe it’ll be yours!
The Oscars, meanwhile, will be held on Sunday, March 27, starting at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET and televised live on ABC and in more than 200 territories worldwide.
