Desi girl Priyanka Chopra’s bond with Academy Awards seems to be getting stronger and better every year. Since her Quantico days, we have already seen her on the prestigious Oscar arena last year. Besides, Quantico and Oscar go on air on the same channel – ABC. Now, raising the bar this year, PeeCee is one of the few celebrities who will announce the Oscar Nominations this year. She will also be joined by Rosario Dawson, Michelle Rodriguez and Rebel Wilson to do the honours on Tuesday at 5:22 AM PST.
This was confirmed when the Academy Awards team shared behind-the-scenes footage of the actress gearing up for the shoot. Wearing a formal black trouser with a silver top, the actress looks simply ravishing. The award show will take place on Sunday, March 4 and will be held at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood and Highland Centre, California.
