The Hollywood Film Academy will announce tomorrow, Tuesday, the nominations for the 91st edition of the Oscars , in which, a priori, works such as "Roma" , "The favorite", "A star is born", " Green Book "and" The vice of power "leave with more options to obtain several nominations.
The announcement, which will feature actors Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross as presenters, will be made from 5:20 local time (1:20 GMT) via the Internet.
The members of the Academy, about 9,000, had from January 7 (a day after the result of the Golden Globes was known, in which "Green Book" was the most awarded work) until January 14 (after the Critic’s Choice gala, where "Roma" triumphed) to cast their votes.
In the premier category, experts say there will be no shortage of titles such as "Infiltrated in the KkKlans", "Black Panther", "The favorite", "First Man", "Green Book," Rome "," A star is born "and "The vice of power", although in that list there could be room for surprises such as "Can you forgive me one day?", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "The blues of Beale Street" or the summer hit of "Crazy Rich Asians".
In the field of best director, everything indicates that the Mexican Alfonso Cuarón will return to make an appearance for the second time after winning the statuette thanks to "Gravity" five years ago.
On this occasion, it could be seen the faces with Bradley Cooper ("A star is born"), Yorgos Lanthimos ("The favorite"), Spike Lee ("Infiltrated in the KkKlans"), Adam McKay ("The vice of power") or Peter Farrelly ("Green Book"), the most recurrent names in the forecasts.
Cuarón could directly enter the bid for the Oscar for best script, best photography and best montage with "Roma", the rival to beat in the field of best foreign language film and that could also find a place in technical categories, especially those Sound.
The battle for the best actress award will be one of the fiercest in years and will surely see the duel between Glenn Close ("The good wife"), Lady Gaga ("A star is born") and Olivia Colman ("The favorite ").
That clash could count on the presence of Mexican Yalitza Aparicio ("Roma") and Melissa McCarthy, who has gotten the best reviews of her career with "Can you forgive me someday?"
In the field of best actor, Christian Bale ("The vice of power"), Bradley Cooper ("A star is born"), Rami Malek ("Bohemian Rhapsody") and Viggo Mortensen ("Green Book") seem safe bets. Other names that are shuffled are those of Ethan Hawke ("The Reverend") and Willem Dafoe ("Van Gogh, at the gates of eternity").
Among the cast performances, Amy Adams ("The vice of power"), Claire Foy ("First Man"), Regina King ("The Beale Street blues") and the couple formed by Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz (" The favorite ") sound like top contenders, while the men’s section could put Mahershala Ali (" Green Book "), Timothée Chalamet (" Beautiful Boy ") and Richard E. Grant (" Can you ever forgive me? "), among others.
The Spanish documentary "El silencio de otros", by Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar, and the short film "Madre", by Rodrigo Sorogoyen, were preselected by the Academy on December 17 and they will finally know tomorrow if they achieve the candidacy in their respective categories .
