Riz Ahmed will be making history next week as he becomes the first actor of Pakistani descent to announce the Academy Awards nominations.
He will be joining forces with Allison Williams, star of M3GAN, for this momentous occasion.
According to Deadline, the announcement is scheduled to take place at 8:30am ET/5:30am PT on Tuesday from the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater and will air live on ABC’s Good Morning America, the ABC morning show announced Wednesday.

Earlier this week, Ahmed announced that he has joined Pakistan's Oscar submission, Joyland, as its executive producer. Taking to Instagram, Ahmed shared he was ecstatic over the collaboration. "We are so proud at Left Handed Films to be a part of Joyland. Our motto is “go left” and Saim Sadiq’s unique film does just that," the Emmy-winning artist penned.
“Joyland is ground-breaking. And it’s easy to get lost in all the ways that it is; the first Pakistani film at Cannes, the first award-winner, the first to be Oscar-shortlisted, and a queer love story that has overcome multiple obstacles to its release,” said Ahmed and Left Handed Films executive Allie Moore in a statement to Variety while announcing the partnership.
