It’s almost time for the 96th Academy Awards! On Sunday, March 10, Hollywood’s biggest names of the year will converge on the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California to hand out the coveted gold statues. This year the epic biopic of Christopher Nolan Oppenheimer leads in nominations with no less than 13 nods, the idiosyncratic comedy by Yorgos Lanthimos Poor things ranks second with 11 nods to Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon comes in third with 10. Greta Gerwig’s box office record breaker Barbie earned eight nominations, including Best Picture, but both Gerwig and the film’s lead actress and producer, Margot Robbie, were notably not nominated in their respective categories.

The Oscars will feature all five original songs nominated this year, including a highly anticipated live performance of Ryan Gosling’s “I’m Just Ken.” The awards show will also have a star-studded list of presenters, including Zendaya, Nicolas Cage, Jamie Lee Curtis, Brendan Fraser, Matthew McConaughey, Michelle Yeoh and Al Pacino.
