The Oscars are back in Hollywood as the nominees from the most competitive films, including ‘CODA’, ‘The Power of the Dog’ and ‘Belfast’ take to the red carpet on Sunday for the movie industry’s biggest night.

After a year away from the Dolby Theater due to the pandemic, the 94th Academy Awards are back in the heart of Tinseltown, where A-listers who passed the strict Covid-19 testing protocols arrived once again draped in their finest dresses and tuxedos.

The show will be hosted for the first time by three female presenters: actor Regina Hall and comedians Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes. The Oscars have been hostless since 2018, when talk show host Jimmy Kimmel ran the show.

This year’s ceremony was also surrounded by controversy when the academy decided to scrap eight award categories from the main ceremony, which would be given off-air, with clips later edited into the live broadcast. When the show started off-camera, Denis Villeneuve’s science fiction epic “Dune” won four Academy Awards, even though it hasn’t started airing yet.

The dark, psychological western “The Power of the Dog” looked set to earn Netflix its coveted first picture frame, but the race has been thrown wide in recent weeks.

“CODA” – an uplifting drama from Apple+ TV about an eccentric deaf family and their musical daughter who can hear – has exploded in popularity and is now tipped as a favorite by many industry insiders. Either would be a historic first-best photo win for a streaming service.
