In a bid to draw more viewers, especially younger ones, after years of declining ratings, the three-hour show starting at 8 p.m.ET will add two awards, the result of fan votes on Twitter for favorite film and scene.

 The ceremony, broadcast live on Walt Disney Co’s ABC, will also feature a moment of support for Ukraine. Producers want the show to be celebratory but said they could not ignore the crisis there.

In the best picture race, success hinges on whether the 9,900 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences back a gothic psychological thriller or an uplifting story.

‘The pundits have always said you never know who’s going to win,’ said People magazine movies editor Nigel Smith.’This year, it actually seems to be the case.’

Power of the Dog, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as a repressed cowboy who torments his brother’s new wife, outpaced all movies with 12 nominations. It had been considered the leader until CODA landed top honors cheap flights from evansville to florida the Screen Actors Guild and Producers Guild.

CODA tells the story of a hearing girl who serves as interpreter for her deaf family but longs to pursue a career in music.CODA is an acronym for ‘child of deaf adult.’

In supporting actor categories, Afro-Latina actress DeBose is expected to prevail her portrayal of Anita in ‘West Side Story.’ ‘CODA’ star Troy Kotsur could make history as the first deaf man to win an Oscar.
