Oscars: When do they air and who are the nominees?

Looking back on last year’s movies, 2017 was a whirlwind of emotions in theaters. There are movies that far exceeded expectations and ones that let audiences down. Now, it’s 2018 and award season is upon is. The 90th annual Academy Awards, or Oscars, will air Live on Sunday, March 4th and be hosted by late-night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel. Some of these categories are too close to call and our best guess is out there.
