Nominations for the 89th Oscars will be announced Tuesday Jan. 24 beginning at 5:18 a.m. PT/8:18 a.m. ET. Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs will be joined by three Oscar winners — last year’s Best Actress champ Brie Larson (“Room”), reigning three-time Cinematography winner Emmanuel Lubezki (“The Revenant,” 2015; “Birdman,” 2014: “Gravity” 2013) and 2006 Supporting Actress Jennifer Hudson (“Dreamgirls”) — as well as past Oscar nominees writer/director Jason Reitman (“Juno,” 2007; “Up in the Air,” 2009) and actor Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai,” 2004).
Unlike in previous years, these half dozen famous folk won’t be taking to the stage of the Samuel Goldwyn Theater at the academy’s headquarters in Beverly Hills, California. The academy canceled the early morning press conference and replaced it with a live stream.
