By this point, we all know that there will not be a host at this year's 91st Academy Awards. This will be the first time the Oscars wil not have a host in almost three decades! The last time the awards were lacking a host in 1989, they opened with a lengthy musical number that didn't seem to get positive reviews. Safe to say, we don't really if we should expect another attempt at a musical performance to open or not.

On the other hand, we do know what the nominees can expect! Every year, nominees get glamorous gifts that are worth six-figures. In 2016, these swag bags reached their peak at a value of $230,000 each! This year, they can expect candles, cannabis chocolates and a poop emoji plunger, in addition to luxury items such as vacations, dinners and phobia relief sessions. No big deal, right!?

Let's talk about the ground-breaking nominations!

'Black Panther' is the first-ever superhero movie to be nominated for "Best Picture".

This is Netflix's biggest year yet, with a total of fifteen Oscar nominations.

There are also some highly-anticipated performances as well!

All the nominees for "Best Original Song" will perform, which obviously includes "Shallow" by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. We can also look forward to a performance by Queen and Adam Lambert in honor of "Best Picture" nominee, 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

We won't know all the details about the award show until it's happening, but we do know it is going to be a night to remember! Tune in this Sunday, February 24 at 8pm ET/5pm P.
