Armed with three comedic cohosts, one of the closest best-picture races in years, and hopefully enough hand sanitizer to fill a large swimming pool in the Hollywood Hills, the Academy Awards return to their home at the Dolby Theater on Sunday.
Though the venue won’t be packed, the ceremony will look a lot more like a typical Oscars television show than last year’s awkward outing at Union Station Los Angeles. ABC, which will air the event, is no doubt hoping for a ratings rebound, as is the broader entertainment industry at large. And if you’re a movie lover, you can do your part by watching or streaming the event live. Here’s what you should know:
When and where are the Oscars held?
The 94th Annual Academy Awards will be held on Sunday, March 27 at 8pm ET / 5pm PT. They will be broadcast live on ABC from the Dolby Theater at Ovation Hollywood. Hosts are Wanda Sykes, Amy Schumer and Regina Hall. Best Picture nominations include: Belfast, KODA, Don’t look up, drive my car, dune, King Richard, Liquorice Pizza, nightmare alley, the power of the dog and Westside Story. You can see the full list of nominations here.
Where to see the Oscars
The following streaming services are streaming the ceremony, but make sure ABC is available in your area. These are paid services. However, you may be able to get a free promotional week:
You can also stream the event on a computer at ABC.com on your mobile devices via the ABC apps. You need to sign up with a pay TV provider.
Are there totally free ways to watch the Oscars?
Yes! ABC is a broadcast network that is technically available free of charge over the air. Unfortunately, one of the best ways to stream free-to-air TV — the non-profit service Locast — shut down in September after the very companies whose channels streamed it sued. But there’s nothing stopping you from grabbing an over-the-air antenna and watching the Oscars the old-fashioned way.
