Actor Chris Hemsworth of Star Trek, The Avengers and Rush, will join Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Cheryl Boone Isaacs in announcing the the 86th Academy Awards® nominations on Thursday, January 16. The Oscars® will air Sunday, March 2, 2014, live on ABC.
Boone Isaacs and Hemsworth will unveil the nominations at a 5:38 a.m. PT live news conference at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, where hundreds of media representatives from around the world will be gathered. Nominations information for all categories will be distributed simultaneously to news media in attendance and via the Internet on the official Academy Awards website, www.oscar.com.
Chris Hemsworth made his feature film debut in 2009’s “Star Trek,” but it was his title role in “Thor” two years later that propelled him to worldwide prominence. He reprised the character in the Marvel blockbusters “The Avengers” and “Thor: The Dark World.” Hemsworth’s other feature credits include “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “Rush,” and he has starring roles in “Cyber” and “In the Heart of the Sea,” both due out next year.
Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2013 will be presented on Oscar® Sunday, March 2, 2014, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® and televised live on the ABC Television Network. The presentation, produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
Academy Awards Nominations Predictions
I don’t make Academy Awards Nominations predictions because it’s just too difficult to get all of the possible combinations correct in all of the categories. Remember, you’re not picking a winner, just the field of competitors.
But while I avoid Academy Awards Nominations Predictions there are others who don’t, like Marlow Stern and Kevin Fallon of The Daily Beast. For Best Supporting Actress, they picked Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle), Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave), Julia Roberts (August: Osage County), June Squibb (Nebraska), Oprah Winfrey (The Butler)
See you Thursday morning!
