A few days from the 95th Academy Awards Ceremonythe Academy announced the criteria used to summon each of the presenters this year and thus avoid a scandal like the one carried out in 2022 by Will Smith and Chris Rock when the latter made a joke on stage that angered the great candidate of the night who went up to hit him before the astonished gaze of those present and of the spectators who were following the gala around the world.
Broadcast, like every year, on TNT and via streaming on HBO Max, the delivery will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and the possible appearance of former hosts of the gala such as Billy Crystal (who appeared in the teaser with which ABC introduced this year’s emcee) and Whoopi Goldberg, which would make the gala itself a return to the basics. that made the Oscar the most prestigious award.
As for the presenters, Riz Ahmed, Jonathan Majors, Zoe Saldaña, Michael B. Jordan, Janelle Monáe, Halle Bailey, Andrew Garfield, Florence Pugh, Antonio Banderas and Dwayne Johnson, among many others, are confirmed. This year’s selection criteria was clear: whether they were actors, actresses and directors involved in the major productions of the year or whether they were figures related to causes such as diversity, gender equality or racial struggle. With this kind of clause, the Academy ensures that those who stand on stage do so without the intention of offending anyone.
In the four acting categories it will be Troy Kotsur, Ariana DeBose and Jessica Chastain, winners of 2022, who will return to deliver the statuettes, while it remains to be seen who will replace Will Smithbanned from the gala after his actions last year.
With a plan in place and a crisis team specially equipped to stop any unforeseen events that could occur, the 95th Oscars could turn out to be the most politically correct in years.
