    All 24 Oscar Nominations To Be Unveiled Live: Abrams, Pine, Cuaron To Do Honors

    The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences just revealed that JJ Abrams, Chris Pine, Alfonso Cuaron and Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs will preside over the live announcement of the 87th Oscar nominations the morning of January 15. The group said that for the first time noms in all 24 categories will be unveiled live as part of a format revamp: a two-part live news conference at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

    At 5:30 AM PT, Cuarón and Abrams will announce the nominees in the following categories: Animated Feature Film, Documentary Feature, Documentary Short Subject, Film Editing, Original Song, Production Design, Animated Short Film, Live Action Short Film, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and Visual Effects.

    At 5:38 AM PT, Pine and Boone Isaacs will take the stage to unveil the nominations for Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Cinematography, Costume Design, Directing, Foreign Language Film, Makeup and Hairstyling, Original Score, Adapted Screenplay, Original Screenplay and Best Picture.

    “Each of the three years we’ve produced the show, we have attempted to refresh elements of the process and the telecast,” said Zadan and Meron in a release today. “This year, we’re honored to start a new tradition that celebrates the contributions of all the nominees by announcing all 24 categories. We’re thrilled that a distinguished actor and two world-class film directors are part of the initial launch.”

    I have to give Craig and Neil their due. I was reasonably vocal with my hesitation with them with their first stint somewhat confirming my fears (the love letter to “Chicago” er musicals -_- ), but they have been successful in making the Oscars a relevant again. And the moves this year with having an almost all gay production and writing team is really cool and now with this news of a new tradition of celebrating all of the nominees puts them over the edge. Very great news!

    OMG! Revealing ALL the nominees at once! Wow, impressive move!

    I have a feeling most of the general public will tune out for “Part 1,” but screw ’em. The majority of us will watch all of them intently, so whatever.

    Now the choices to annouce the nominations are kinda dull, but I like the idea of getting nonactors to do this sometimes to mix things up. Many high-profile directors are out there now that the public knows and recognizes as well as actors and such.

    I love this the same way I love they show these awards on the telecast. To give people who aren’t the big name a moment in the spotlight for their hard work.

    I can’t wait!!! I’ve never cared about who was announcing it, but the choice to announce all the categories is terrific. I love it.
