94th Academy Awards return to the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on Sunday, as last year’s best films are celebrated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The show will be hosted by Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes, and for the first time the award ceremony will feature several presenters since Anne Hathaway and James Franco co-hosted the 83rd Party in 2011.

“The Power of the Dog” leads in 12 nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director and several the actor nods. Filming of Frank Herbert’s science fiction epic “Dune” by Danny Villeneuve in 10 nominations, competing for the best film, as well as the best cinematography, score and visual effects.

While the Oscars are returning to their usual home after a modified ceremony last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some protocols remain in effect. All participants must present evidence of vaccination or a valid medical exemption. Performers and presenters will be tested, but vaccinations are not required.

The show caused controversy long before it began when it was announced in February eight awards will be presented off-air to shorten the broadcast and give more time for script bits and musical numbers. Prior to the official ceremony, “Dune” received awards for sound, staging, original score and editing.

The ceremony will be broadcast on ABC and should begin at 8pm ET.
