The 94th annual Academy awards take place this Sunday, March 27th, and while you may not be on the red carpet, you’ll feel like you are with my watch guide.
I have everything you need to know from the red carpet and pre-show to who is hosting and where it all takes place.
Read on to find out where, when and how to watch.
Red Carpet & Pre Show Streaming
The pre-show and red carpet ceremonies are a must for Oscar fans. I know I can’t wait to see who is wearing what (and who shows up with whom!)
PEOPLE & Entertainment Weekly Red Carpet Live: Hollywood’s Biggest Night, the official red carpet show, starts at 5:30 p.m. ET / 2:30 p.m. PT on Sunday, March 27, 2022.
ABC has “On The Red Carpet Live! Countdown to the Oscars®,” which airs from 1 – 4 p.m. ET/10 a.m.- 1 p.m. PT on ABC. This is followed by “ABC News Live Presents…On The Red Carpet Live! Countdown to the Oscars®” from 4:30-6:30 p.m. ET/1:30-3:30 p.m. PT.
Finally, there is The Oscars Red Carpet Show, which will lead into the awards at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m PT. Also airing on ABC this special will showcase Oscar nominees, performers and a behind-the-scenes look at the show.
The Oscars air Sunday, March 27th on ABC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
If you watch through ABC it’s free, but you will need to authenticate your cable TV provider; the other services require you to pay for a package, although you can sign up for a 7-day free trial and cancel before you have to pay.
Oscar Place/ Time/ Hosts
The awards will be broadcasting live from the Dolby Theater at Ovation Hollywood in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m PT sharp! This year there will be 3 hosts: Actor-comedians Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes and actor Regina Hall.
You can check out a list of nominees, performers, presenters, and my predictions here.
While many are excited to be back celebrating, this year’s ceremony isn’t all smiles; many are upset that in an effort to keep the show from running long a number of awards will be presented prior to the live event.
