When and where can you watch the 2023 Oscars
The 95th Academy Awards then take place on March 12, 2023. Members of the Academy vote for the Oscars in early January, before nominations are announced on January 24, which is when the serious build-up begins.
The Oscars will be televised on ABC in the United States, while you can head to the ABC website to watch the ceremony streaming. The Oscars will also be broadcast to more than 200 territories worldwide from the live location, which is at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood.
The Academy Awards won’t be broadcast live in the UK, though Sky will be doing a preview show on the night.
The Oscars will likely be broadcast at 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT / 2AM GMT / 3AM CET.
Jimmy Kimmel is hosting the 95th Academy Awards
Jimmy Kimmel is hosting the 2023 Oscars. This will be the third time he has taken charge of the event, having previously hosted in 2017, and 2018, the latter being when the infamous Moonlight/La La Land mix-up happened.
“Being invited to host the Oscars for a third time is either a great honor or a trap,” Kimmel said in a statement. “Either way, I am grateful to the Academy for asking me so quickly after everyone good said no.”
“Jimmy is the perfect host to help us recognize the incredible artists and films of our 95th Oscars,” Academy CEO Bill Kramer and Academy president Janet Yang said in a joint statement. “His love of movies, live TV expertise, and ability to connect with our global audiences will create an unforgettable experience for our millions of viewers worldwide.”
