What is Priyanka Chopra famous for

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas will moderate

Too white, too old, too established: the Oscars have been criticized for years. At least when the nominations are announced, the Hollywood establishment wants to send a signal of reform again.

Berlin - Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas (38) and her husband, singer Nick Jonas (28), will jointly announce this year's Oscar nominations. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles announced on Thursday. The two-hour presentation will be broadcast live on March 15th on the Oscar website as well as on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

US singer Nick Jonas became known as a member of the sibling band Jonas Brothers. He has been married to the Indian actress and producer since 2018. The 93rd Academy Awards will take place on April 25, 2021.

Responding to criticism

The awarding academy has been under pressure for years; its predominantly older, white membership does not in any way reflect the diversity of society and the film industry. Instead, the one-sidedness of the group also distorts the awarding of the award: colored artists have little chance at the Oscars, women are still massively disadvantaged.

In several reform steps, the Academy tried to respond to the fundamental criticism and the #oscarssowhite campaign. The choice of Priyanka Chopra Jonas as the presenter for the announcement of the Oscar nominations may well be seen as part of these reactions.
