WASHINGTON, March 12 – RIA Novosti. The best films of the year, according to the US Film Academy, will be announced among the Oscar nominees on Sunday – the film “Exit” by Yakut directors about the life of Chukchi walruses.

Jimmy Kimmel will host the ceremony for the third time in his career. The organizers of the award returned to the practice of a presenter after several ceremonies without a host and an unsuccessful attempt to secure a stage for three hosts at once last year.
When the famous comedian started joking around before the ceremony, the organizers, who decided to hold the ceremony without a red carpet for the first time since 1961, gave him a reason. The carpet that stars love to pose for the cameras will remain, but this year it will be champagne, light beige, not the usual red.
Referring to the scandal that broke out last year when actor Will Smith punched colleague Chris Rock in the face for playing a bad joke at the Oscars, Kimmel said: “This shows we don’t expect bloodshed.”
For the second year in a row, Volodymyr Zelensky was denied a performance at the Oscars. The organizers did not explain in detail the reasons for the refusal.
