oscars-statues-image-1The Oscar Nominations will be announced Thursday morning by the 85th Oscars Host Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone. It marks the first time the Oscar Nominations will be announced by the Oscars host since 1972.

MacFarlane and Stone will unveil the nominations at a 5:30 a.m. PT news conference at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, where hundreds of media representatives from around the world will be gathered.

Since the first nominations announcement in 1964, the Academy president has been joined by one or more co-announcers at the event.

This year the Academy will break with tradition when MacFarlane, who was named Oscar show host in October, joins Stone on Oscar nominations morning. AMAPAS reports that Charlton Heston was the only other show host to participate in the nominations announcement in 1972.
