You don’t have plans for Sunday, right? Cause Oscars will be hitting your screens with a big surprise!
James Bond will be part of America’s biggest Award ceremony despite not being nominated this year.
“James Bond didn’t get an Oscar nomination this year, but that doesn’t mean that he won’t be part of the ceremony, via AP,” Bloomberg Tweeted.
The 60th anniversary of our favorite 007 movie series and the 50th of “The Godfather” will not go uncelebrated on the 94th Oscars as the show producer, Will Packer, said on Thursday, “We have some surprises around that. Wink, wink.”
“It’s all part of the overriding theme of the year: Movie lovers unite.”
“Movies are the one thing that actually do unite so many of us as a global community,” said the producer. “Movies make you feel something, they inspire you, they make you aspire.”
Packer had accompanied hosts Wanda Sykes, Regina Hall, co-producer Shayla Cowan, director Glenn Weiss, musical director Adam Blackstone, and the show’s production designer David Korins for the 94th Oscars’ preview which is just a few days away.
While Amy Schumer, the third host, did not attend the preview, she sent a message to the other members via her colleagues, “Don’t worry, it’s not COVID.”
The organizers have promised a full night celebration, including performances on our favorites “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” and “Encanto”. Moreover, Luis Fonsi and Becky G will be joining the Lin-Manuel Miranda hit’s performance which secured the first position on the Billboard charts, said the academy.
Despite the unbelievable success of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” it won’t be competing for an Oscar. On the other hand, the Spanish song “Dos Oruguitas” will be vying for the best original song award.
Due to last year’s low rating, the 94th Oscars is aiming to cope with the loss. The organizers have made drastic efforts to stretch the runtime of the show to 3-hours, including the decision to hand out 8 awards prior to the award show ceremony and edit them into the live broadcast.
“We’re going to make sure that everybody has their moment,” Packer stated. “It’s about celebrating the most talented people and what they do.”
