BIG FILM RACES TO WATCH

While "The Favourite" may have received 10 nominations (along with its competitor "Roma"), there is no clear favorite in the race for best picture. "Green Book" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" may have won in their respective best film categories at the Golden Globes, but both have found themselves in the midst of controversy.

"Roma" is also vying to make Oscar history as the first foreign language film to win the best picture category. The apparent underdog at the beginning of the awards season, "Roma" has won best foreign picture at the Golden Globes, best picture at the Critics Choice Awards, and best film at the British BAFTA awards.

While "Black Panther" might not be receiving much talk as a best picture likely, it has made history as the first superhero movie nominated for an Oscar.

WHO IS THE HOST?

For the second time in Oscar history, the ceremony will run without a host. Instead, a variety of presenters will take turns hosting the event. Among the presenters are Tina Fey, Keegan-Michael Key, Awkwafina, Melissa McCarthy and Samuel L. Jackson.

HOW TO LIVE TWEET

Use the hashtag #Oscars to live tweet during the ceremony. And unique to All Access, viewers will be able to submit questions for nominees via Twitter on @TheAcademy using the hashtag #OscarsAllAccess. Lucky viewers will get to see their question asked live.
