Nominations for the 85th Academy Awards will be announced at 5:30 AM Pacific Time Thursday morning by the show’s host, Seth MacFarlane, and actress Emma Stone. This will be the first time since 1972 that an Oscar show host has participated in the nominations announcement. The press conference will be held at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California.
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. Charlton Heston (1972) was the only other show host to participate in the nominations announcement.
Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, February 24, 2013, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and televised live on the ABC Television Network. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.
The announcement will be streamed LIVE right here.
