The 94th Academy Awards will be held on March 27 at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. It will be televised on ABC and for the first time in three years, will feature a host. While this announcement was made in January, no official names have been dropped. The Oscar Nominations Show was hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross and Leslie Jordan.

Leading the pack this year is Netflix’s The Power of the Dog with 12 nominations. Not far behind was Dune with a surprising 10 nominations. Jane Campion, director of The Power of the Dog, made history as the first woman to earn two nominations for best director.

It seems that Oscar voters chose to avoid popular choices that were getting buzz before the official nominations. The Internet has been ablaze with the idea of Spider-Man: No Way Home possibly being nominated for best picture but it did not come to fruition. This could be bad news for producers considering the ratings boost the telecast received when popular films present. Other snubs included Lady Gaga, for her role in House of Gucci, who had been nominated at earlier awards bodies. Director Denis Villeneuve, the director behind Dune, was surprisingly left out despite the film performing well in other categories.
