Leslie Jordan and Tracee Ellis Ross were on hand to reveal the nominees live from Los Angeles on Tuesday, February 8.

The awards show previously made headlines when it wrapped up its 2021 broadcast with the Best Actor award going to Anthony Hopkins. The Oscars usually saves Best Picture as the last award. Viewers expected the change to mean Chadwick Boseman would win posthumously for his work in Black Bottom.

Amid the backlash, ABC executive Rob Mills addressed the controversial decision to switch up the order of the presentation.

“There was a lot of really great risks that some might view didn’t pay off,” Mills told Variety after the April 2021 premiere. “But it was just great to do something different and not know what was going to happen next — and not have those glazed eyes of, ‘Oh gosh, I’ve seen this before I know exactly what’s going to happen.’”

Mills noted that the changes didn’t only affect the final categories.

“The whole show was mixed up,” he added at the time. “I think the point was, sometimes you watch the show and you feel like, ‘Gosh, I’ve seen this every year.’ So, it really was the, ‘Wow, I really don’t know what’s coming next.’ … Some people were upset, some people loved it and that was really the point that there was no apathy.”

The executive also pointed out that the memorable moment served as an example that no one knows the results beforehand, saying, “Although imagine that they did, and they still did that. That would have been very bold.”

Hopkins, 84, who won for his role in The Father, was not in attendance at the Los Angeles ceremony. He later honored the late Black Panther star in his acceptance speech.

“Well, good morning. Here I am in my homeland in Wales. At 83 years of age, I did not expect to get this award. I really didn’t. I’m very grateful to the Academy, and thank you,” the Silence of the Lambs actor said in a video shared via Instagram. “I want to pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who was taken from us far too early.”

Boseman, who died in August 2020 at age 43 following a battle with colon cancer, was not the only late thespian that viewers felt wasn’t acknowledged properly. After the 93rd Academy Awards, some people took to social media to question why certain stars, including Naya Rivera, Jessica Walter and Adam Schlesinger, weren’t mentioned during the In Memoriam tribute.

“The Academy receives hundreds of requests to include loved ones and industry colleagues in the Oscars ‘In Memoriam’ segment,” the organization previously stated in a statement in 2020. “An executive committee representing every branch considers the list and makes selections for the telecast based on limited available time. All the submissions are included on and will remain on the site throughout the year.”

The 94th Academy Awards will air on ABC Sunday, March 27, at 8 p.m. ET.
