Order of Oscar Awards Presentations

Straight Outta Compton

The Academy released the order in which their awards will be presented tonight. In the past they’ve usually started with a supporting performance. But It appears they’re switching things up this year, beginning with the both Screenplay awards before moving on to Supporting Actress.

One wonders if this move is in the hope that a win by Straight Outta Compton at the top of the show might help to soften some of the #oscarssowhite scandal. There is a slight chance it could pull through – it’s arguably in 2nd place –  but it will still be a major feat for that film to upset presumed, practically set-in-stone, frontrunner Spotlight.

In case you’re interested, here’s the order for the night:
