The Oscars this year features a diverse range of nominations from the first Netflix film, Roma to Black Panther as possibly the first superhero film that could win the Best Picture award. Since the twitter campaign #OscarsSoWhite began in 2015, the Academy Awards has been criticized for lacking diversity and failing to include marginalized communities. Critics say this year's nominations, as usual, failed to recognize the Asian community. VOA's Anna Kook has more.
The 91st Academy of Motion Pictures Awards ceremony is Sunday at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Although this year's Oscars are still officially without a host for a second time in their history, Los Angeles is getting ready. VOA’s Anna Kook has this inside look.
Days are left before the 91st Academy Awards ceremony that'll take place in Los Angeles. But before actors and directors walk the red carpet and talk about the films they made, an exhibition showcasing costumes from the Oscar-nominated movies opened in Los Angeles. Angelina Bagdasaryan has the story, narrated by Anna Rice.
