This is the most brilliant night of the year, when the Hollywood legends and bright young people compete for the most coveted film industry prize: the iconic golden statuette.
Here is all you need to know about the awards ceremony this year.
When does Oscar happen?
The ceremony of the Oscar in 2019 will be held Sunday February 24, 2019
Who are the Oscar nominees in 2019?
Roma Alfonso Cuarona – Netflix's semi-autobiographical drama about a young housekeeper working in a wealthy family in Mexico in the 1970s – and Yorgos Lanthimos & # 39; The Favorite (a fictional historical drama about the relationship of Queen Anne with her assistants) lead the compilation in 2019. Each has 10 nominations, including Best Picture, Best Directorial, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress (x2 for The Favorite). , for Rachel Weiss and Emma Stone). The star is born and the vice is also quite noticeable, with eight face values apiece (both also for a better picture).
Elsewhere, “Black Panther” received a historical nomination for “Best Picture” (this is the first superhero film ever to be included in the category), and the debutants “Lady Gaga” (“The Star Is Born”) and Yalitza Aparisio (Roma) nodded in their first movie roles, and Christian Bale, who He was awarded the title of Best Acting Gong on Golden Globes and received the Critics Choice Award for his role as former Vice President Dick Cheney as Vice President, and the best actress is also challenged Glenn Close, Olivia Coleman and Regina King are fighting for the best actress.
However, although in recent years the Academy has made efforts to diversify its membership base, the category “Best Director” remains completely masculine because Josie Rourke (Mary Queen of Scots) and Mariel Heller (“Can you ever forgive me?”) Lose Spike Lee (BlackkKlansman), Pavel Pavlikovski (Cold War), Yorgos Lantimos (Favorite), Alfonso Cuaron (Roma) and Adam McKay (Vice).
Who else was stolen from the Oscar nominations?
While Bradley Cooper was nominated elsewhere for Star Is Born, you could have forgiven him for feeling resentment for what he missed in the category Best Director. Rob Lowe, of course, thinks he deserved it …
Bradley Cooper was robbed for Best Direction. Clear.

British biodrama "Mary Queen of Scott" was also unexpectedly absent in all major categories, including acting shortlists, which featured Margot Robbie and Sorse Ronan.
In addition, Timothy Shalame (My Fair Boy), Claire Foy (First Man), Ethan Hawke (First Transformed) and Tony Collette (Hereditary) were all ignored, much to the chagrin of their fans.
The most terrible morning jerk is, of course, Ethan Hawke in The Best Actor. This is the biggest actor's prize among critics, which I can remember, having missed an Oscar since Peter Sarsgaard’s time in The Broken Glass in 2003.

Why is Kevin Hart not taking an Oscar?
Kevin Hart left Oscar after a negative reaction to his previous homophobic comments and tweets.
“I made the choice to refuse to host the Oscar this year,” he said in his post on Twitter.
“It’s because I don’t want to be distracted overnight, which must be celebrated by many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.
“I’m sorry for hurting people. I develop and want to continue to do it. My goal is to unite people, not separate us. Much love and gratitude of the Academy. Hope we can meet again.
I made the choice to get away from Oscar reception this year … because I don’t want to be distracted by the night that many amazing talented artists have to celebrate. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.

How will Oscar work without a host?
It is still unclear what form the show will take without a host, and for the first time in 30 years, the Academy decided to act without an MC.
In accordance with Hollywood Reporter, the producers of the series are struggling to reunite with the actors of the Avengers (including such as Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans) and other celebrities to add some appeal to the broadcast and bridge the gap between various awards and music segments.
Golden Globes, before the first release of Ricky Gervais in 2009, traditionally passed without a host and did it just fine, so the Oscars have to go through this creaky wandering period unscathed.
I do not know about you, but I am very happy to see how the Hulk looks in a tuxedo.
Who are Oscar's favorites?
If there is a world in which Lady Gaga and the Bradley Cooper Shoal I didn't win the Best Original Song, I don't want to live in it. This seems like a dead testimony, but not a single bookmaker will most likely bet on categories outside the big four (best male role, best female role, best photo and best director).
The Green Book became the favorite to win the Best Picture nomination after it received an award at the producer award ceremony in January. 8 of the last 10 films that won the Best Picture won at the PGA on the eve of …
Alfonso Cuarón is currently leading the race for the title of best director, receiving an award at both the Golden Globe and the Critic Competition.
Freed after his victory in Golden Globes, Rami Malek was asked to choose an Oscar for Best Actor for his flawless image of Freddie Mercury, although the image of Christian Bale about Dick Cheney would give him a chance to make money.
It is expected that Glenn Close, who won the Globe and associated with Lady Gaga at the Critics Choice ceremony, will receive the Best Actress award home, but Olivia Coleman’s turn in Favorite is also still popular among the awards.
Will Oscars be the best popular movie category?
In August 2018, the Academy announced that it plans to present the “best popular film” category for showing awards to highlight the achievements of genre films and blockbusters, which are less likely to make the best category of films, such as “Black Panther” by Marvel and Mamma Mia! Here we go again.
However, after the decision was unpopular, they changed their mind, and the board of directors of the organization vetoed it.
They add, however, that they may return to the idea in the future.
Will Oscar have a special award this year?
A special award for this year’s ceremony has not yet been announced.
In some cases in the past, the Academy issued a special award for achievements by directors who make an “exceptional contribution” to the cinema.
In 1995, John Lasseter from Pixar won for making Toy Story the first full-length computer cartoon. In 2017, Alejandro González Inarritu (The Revenant, Birdman) won for his short virtual reality “Flesh and Sand”.
Who got the main awards at last year's Oscar?
Guillermo del Toro's magic realistic novel "The Form of Water" was the main winner at the Oscar Awards last year, turning four of 13 nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Music and Best Production Design.
Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell won in the nominations "Best Actress" and "Supporting Actor" for Three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri, while Gary Oldman (The darkest hour) and Allison jenny (I, Tonya) won the remaining acting gongs.
In the other place, Jordan peel won for the best original script for Get out, and Pixar & # 39; s Coco won the best animated film.
Who are the leading Oscars in 2019?
Although the list of speakers has not yet been announced, we know that, according to Oscar’s tradition, the winners of the last year’s acting awards must return to present the awards to their different numbers.
It means Gary Oldman will present the award for the best female role, and Frances McDormand will present the award for the best male role, Allison jenny and Sam Rockwell due to the presence of auxiliary categories.
The rest, however, is a mystery …
Who votes for Oscar?
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences consists of about 7,000 film professionals from around the world. In 2014, among the #OscarsSoWhite saga, it turned out that 94 percent of voters were white and 76 percent were men.
Former President Cheryl Boone Isaacs took action to change this in 2016, launching an initiative to double the number of different members by 2020.
Last June, he welcomed 928 new members as part of this. These included Kendrick Lamar, Tiffany Hadish, Dave Chappel, Mindy Kaling, Amy Schumer, Kumayil Nanjani, Wendell Pierce, Gina Rodriguez, Sarah Silverman, J.C. Rowling, Questlav and Jada Pinkett Smith.
The population of the Academy was kept secret for some time, but this seems to be changing …
What happened in the season of awards in 2019?
Bohemian Rhapsody was an unexpected winner at Golden Globes (after receiving mostly mixed reviews from critics, but proved a hit with his audience), taking home the award for the best picture, with lead Rami malek also getting a reward for the best male role.
Although only 65 journalists from the mysterious Hollywood Foreign Press Association voted for Globus, it still has the effect of “for the Oscar awards” (voting for the Oscars, opened the day after the Globus), and the queen the film may become a bigger player than the critics among us expected.
We also saw some consistency in the operating categories in the two main ceremonies that have taken place so far (Globe Awards and Selection of Critics): Christian Bale, Glenn Close (although associating with Gaga in CCA) and Regina King beat both. Mahershala Ali was nominated for Globus and won in the PAS.
RomaIt was also approved by both remuneration committees. He won the best picture and the best director in the SSA, as well as the best film in a foreign language and the best director on the globe.
And the British Olivia Coleman also won both in the Globe and in the CCA, and received the Bafta nomination along with her colleagues Emma Stone and Rachel Weiss.
