The show will also feature a special appearance by Questlove. A conducted segment by Eímear Noone will mark the first time a woman has conducted during an Oscarcast.
For the second consecutive year, the Oscars will go hostless. ABC Entertainment boss Karey Burke announced earlier this month at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that the Oscars will have “no traditional host.”
“We expect that we’re going to have a very commercial set of nominations and a lot of incredible elements have come together that make us think we are going to have a very entertaining show again,” Burke said at the time. Nominations were announced five days later.
Some of the more prominent nominees include Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Joaquin Phoenix, Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio, Al Pacino, Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino. Academy voters came under fire again this year for the lack of diversity among this year’s nominees. Erivo is the only person of color nominated in the acting categories. The directing nominees are also all male.
The 92nd Academy Awards will air live Feb. 9 at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on ABC.
