Must-see movies of 2018

The Oscar nominations are being announced Tuesday morning. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is revealing the nominees in all 24 categories starting at 8:20 a.m. ET.

After the nominees are announced, academy members will have nearly a month to consider who they want to take home the prized statuettes. Voting closes on Feb. 19, and the awards show airs on Sunday, Feb. 24.

No "popular film" nominees this year

No nominees are being announced for outstanding "achievement in popular film." Less than a month after creating the new category in August, the academy said it would not be a part of the 2019 ceremony and needed "further study."

The academy was criticized for creating a kind of consolation prize to boost the Oscars' ratings, CBS News correspondent Vladimir Duthiers reported. "The academy is trying to get around the idea that its own membership is not going to nominate a 'Black Panther,'" New York Times culture reporter Melena Ryzik told CBS News after the category was created.

Kumail Nanjiani, Tracee Ellis Ross presenting nominations

Actor Kumail Nanjiani and actress Tracee Ellis Ross are presenting the nominations. The two stars, known for their work on sitcoms "Silicon Valley" and "Black-ish" respectively, joked about the presentation's early hour — 5:20 a.m. in California — on Twitter.

An honor and a thrill to be announcing the #OscarNoms with the amazing @TraceeEllisRoss. Thanks @TheAcademy! I promise I'll set my alarm for 5:15 am at the latest! https://t.co/WYR16XHaxL
