John Cho and Leslie Mann are set to host the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Scientific and Technical Awards Presentation this weekend.
Some of this presentation will be included in the 2017 Oscars telecast, which will take place Sunday, February 26. The 2017 Oscars telecast will air on ABC that same evening.
“The Academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards honor the men, women and companies whose discoveries and innovations have contributed in significant and lasting ways to motion pictures.”
During the Scientific and Technical Awards Presentation, which takes place this Saturday at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills, eighteen awards will be given out to thirty-four individuals and five organizations.
“We’re so excited to have John and Leslie join us as hosts for this year’s Scientific and Technical Awards,” said Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. “It’s one of our favorite, and most talked about, events each Oscar season, and John and Leslie’s humor and refreshing take on the honorees will be a perfect addition to a night where we celebrate our colleagues’ groundbreaking scientific and technical achievements.”
