The 94th Academy Awards will be hosted by Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night to honor the best movies and performances of last year, as well as handing out awards for technical excellence and writing.
The Power of the Dog leads the way with 12 nominations and is widely forecast to win big in some of the most prestigious categories, including Best Picture, Best Director and the main acting awards, while Dune has 10 nominations and is likely to do well in the technical categories.
Last year Nomadland was the big winner at the Oscars, landing Best Picture, Best Director for Chloé Zhao and Best Actress for Frances McDormand, who picked up her third Oscar, leaving her one short of the all-time record of four held by Katherine Hepburn.
The Academy Awards weekend kicked off with an honorary Oscar for Samuel L. Jackson and awards for other movie industry veterans on Friday. Jackson was among the recipients of the annual Governors Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the group that will hand out best picture and other trophies at a live ceremony on Sunday.
Denzel Washington introduced Jackson at Friday's black-tie event by noting he has appeared in 152 films that have grossed more than $27 billion at movie box offices over five decades.
As he accepted the award, Jackson thanked his family, business representatives, "and every person who ever bought a ticket to any of my movies."
Lethal Weapon star Danny Glover received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for his advocacy for justice and human rights. He currently serves as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF. Writer-director Elaine May and Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann also were honored.
