Apple CEO Tim Cook will attend the 94th Academy Awards – the Oscars – this Sunday according to Matthew Belloni, the former editor of The Hollywood Reporter outlet that covers the film and television industries.
This is not the first time for Cook to attend an awards ceremony as he attended the Golden Globes in 2020. Belloni states that Cook will attend the Oscars after Apple’s entrance into the film and television industries “Two and a half years later”:
“Apple C.E.O. Tim Cook will attend the show on Sunday, I’m told, and if he walks out of the Dolby Theater with the top prize, he will have triumphed just two and a half years after formally entering the film and TV business.”
Cook’s attendance will be in accordance with the fact that Apple TV+ has six nominations for content that include:
- Best Actor for Denzel Washington: “The Tragedy of Macbeth”
- Best Supporting Actor for Troy Kotsur: “CODA”
- Best Picture for “CODA”
- Best Cinematography for “The Tragedy of Macbeth”
- Best Production Design for “The Tragedy of Macbeth”
- Best Adapted Screenplay for Sian Heder for “CODA”
The 94th Academy Awards will take place in the Dolby Theater in Hollywood and will cover the best films that debuted between March 1st and December 31st, 2021. Apple TV+ has been quickly expanding since its debut back in 2020.
During Apple’s Peek Performance Event on March 8th, the company announced “Friday Night Baseball”, a new way for users to stream MLB games, boosting its sports and general television section.
