The Oscar nominations will be announced today (Tues), with an expanded best picture category which it is hoped will make room for a wider range of films.

The Power of the Dog, Belfast and West Side Story are among the films expected to pick up multiple nominations.

British acting nominees could include Andrew Garfield, Benedict Cumberbatch, Olivia Colman and Ciarán Hinds.

The Academy has confirmed the ceremony will have a host this year, but has not yet revealed who it will be.

There is pressure to make the Oscars more popular with and relevant to young audiences, after 2021’s pared-down ceremony tanked in the ratings, partly due to the absence of big film releases during lockdown.

Tracee Ellis Ross and Leslie Jordan will announce the nominations from Los Angeles at 13:20 GMT.
