Oscar viewers are reacting to the reveal that the 2021 Oscars ceremony is presenting Best Picture ahead of Best Actor and Best Actress.
In previous years, Best Picture has always been the last category to be announced. However, this year, The Academy has chosen to announce the winner ahead of Best Actor and Best Actress.
The Best Picture nominees include The Father, Judas and the Black Messiah, Mank, Minari, Nomadland, Promising Young Woman, Sound of Metal and The Trial of the Chicago 7.
“Everyone just being completely thrown off by Best Picture coming before Actor and Actress lmao #Oscars #what #is #happening,” one Oscar viewer tweeted about the announcement.

Best Picture before best actor and best actress is wildly weird. I think best actor is last and Chadwick wins. #oscars
