Emma Stone will be joined by Oscar host Seth MacFarlane to announce this year’s Academy Award nominees Thursday morning at 5:30 a.m. It will be the first time an Oscar host has participated in the nominations announcement since 1972.
According to the Academy, the Academy president has been joined by one or more co-announcers at the event since the first nominations announcement in 1964. However, it appears current Acad prexy Hawk Koch will sit this out. Forty years ago, Charlton Heston was the only other show host to do the noms announcement.
