Bond tribute
The Oscars ceremony will also be hosted by MacFarlane, who
created the animated series Family Guy.
It has already been announced that the star-studded event
will feature a tribute to 50 years of the James Bond movie
franchise.
“We are very happy to include a special sequence on our show
saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday,” said the
producers of the Oscars show, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
The nominations are selected by a ballot of 6,000 members of
the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
A total of 24 categories will be announced, including the best
acting performances of the year and technical awards in areas
such as editing, design and music.
Nominations for this year’s awards are being announced two
weeks earlier than usual.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said the
move would “provide members and the public a longer period
of time to see the nominated films”.
The Bafta nominations were announced on Wednesday with
Lincoln leading the way in 10 categories.
