India's connect with Oscars continues, as Priyanka Chopra appears in the trailer

LONDON: The 90th Academy Awards ceremony, which will honour the best films of 2017, will take place on March 4, 2018, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. The Academy recently released a trailer to build the momentum for one of the most eargerly awaited film events in the world. While the video shows grabs from 2017 films, our very own Priyanka Chopra makes an appearance in the minute-long clip as well.

The trailer features several memorable moments from last year's award show, including the most controversial situation around the Best Picture award when La La Land was mistakenly pronounced the winner instead of Moonlight. In adddition to that, Priyanka is seen for a micro second on last year's red carpet.

This year will be Priyanka's third stint at the Oscars. While she presented the award for best editing in 2016, the following year saw her only as an attendee. Now, we are just waiting to see what the actress, who is currently the darling of the west with her popular show Quantico, will wear for the awards ceremony this time around. While the first year she stunned in a Zuhair Murad lace gown with a billowing train, last year she impressed fashion folk in an ivory panelled Ralph & Russo number.

After hosting last year's show, comedian Jimmy Kimmy will return as the host of Oscars 2018, making him the first person to host back-to-back ceremonies, since Billy Crystal in 1997 and 1998.
