Oscars quiz 2021: Test your knowledge of Academy Awards nominees

Before they announce the Oscar winners this weekend, see how up you are on the diverse list of talents up for Academy Awards this year and also about past recipients.

It’s fitting that the weirdest movie year ever will be capped Sunday by what should be the weirdest Academy Awards ever, with director Steven Soderbergh shooting the ceremony like a live movie inside Los Angeles’s Union Station.

This year, for the first time, the nominated songs will be performed before the event instead of during. Recorded performances by Celeste, H.E.R., Leslie Odom Jr., Laura Pausini, Daniel Pemberton, Molly Sandén and Diane Warren will be part of “Oscars: Into the Spotlight,” beginning at 5:30 p.m. on WLS-Channel 7.

The host-free ceremony will begin at 7, with a roster of presenters that includes Harrison Ford, Brad Pitt, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, Don Cheadle, Renee Zellweger, Regina King, Joaquin Phoenix, Rita Moreno, Laura Dern, Zendaya, Angela Bassett, Bryan Cranston, Marlee Matlin and last year’s best director winner Bong Joon Ho.

The nominees feature many firsts, a great deal of diversity and a lot of a city that’s called Chicago but doesn’t really look much like Chicago.
