This year’s Oscars is produced by industry titan Will Packer, who called the opportunity to produce “an honor.” He shared last year, “The power, the beauty, the romance of the imagery in movies has always attracted me. I’m fully embracing the challenge of bringing an ode to one of the most iconic mediums in the world to life. What an honor!”

The 94th Annual Academy Awards will feature hosts Regina Hall, Wanda Sykes and Amy Schumer. The ceremony will be Sunday March 27th at at 8 p.m. EDT/5 p.m. PDT on ABC.
