OSCARS: Chris Hemsworth & Cheryl Boone Isaacs To Handle Nominations Announcement

oscarBEVERLY HILLS, CA — Actor Chris Hemsworth and Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Cheryl Boone Isaacs will announce the 86th Academy Awards® nominations on Thursday, January 16. The Oscars® will air Sunday, March 2, 2014, live on ABC. Boone Isaacs and Hemsworth will unveil the nominations at a 5:38 a.m. PT live news conference at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. Hemsworth made his feature film debut in 2009’s “Star Trek,” but it was his title role in “Thor” two years later that propelled him to worldwide prominence. He reprised the character in the Marvel blockbusters “The Avengers” and “Thor: The Dark World.” Hemsworth’s other feature credits include “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “Rush,” and he has starring roles in “Cyber” and “In the Heart of the Sea,” both due out next year.

  1. I am glad that an African American woman of color, who also happens to be the president of the ampas accademy, will be presented as the public face of the ampas acaademy for the public announcements of the nominees. Bravo ampas accademy.

  2. They always show the president, I live for the day where these observations are no longer noticed or noted.

  3. Yeah, that’s ridiculous. It should be another star who may conceivably win an Oscar some day. Viola Davis, Kerry Washington, yada yada.

  4. Agree with Mark Kelley–the ampas accademy should also have an African American actor or actress of color do the presenting as well as the president of the ampas accademy there also.
