When the nominations for the 93rd annual Academy Awards are announced first thing Monday morning, a Jonas Brother will do the honors. Nick Jonas and his wife, actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas, will unveil nominations in all 23 categories.

The two-part livestream will broadcast on Oscar.com, Oscars.org and across the Academy’s Twitter, YouTube and Facebook accounts.

The first portion will begin at 8:19 a.m. ET on March 15, where nine categories will be revealed, including original score. The second half will start at 8:31 a.m. ET and includes the final 14 categories, including top prizes like best picture and actor and actress in a leading role; the original song nominees will also be announced in the second half.

The score for Disney and Pixar’s Soul looks like a lock for an original score Oscar nomination after Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Jon Batiste picked up the prize at both the Golden Globes and Sunday’s Critics Choice Awards. The original song category is a little less clear, with “Io Sì (Seen)” from The Life Ahead (La Vita Davanti a Se) earning a Globe for Diane Warren, Laura Pausini and Niccolò Agliardi, while “Speak Now” from One Night in Miami… (credited to Sam Ashworth and Leslie Odom Jr.) won the Critics Choice Award in the same category.
