Which nominees will win an Academy Award, the most coveted honor for movies? Favorites to win include "The Banshees of Inisherin" and the cast of "Everything, Everywhere All At Once" following sweeps at previous shows.

Jimmy Kimmel is hosting the 95th Oscars ceremony, with a long list of presenters and performers taking the stage too. His monologue is likely to reference the biggest moment at the Oscars last year, and one of the most conversation-starting moments in the award show's history: When Will Smith slapped presenter Chris Rock.

Other anticipated moments include Rihanna performing "Lift Me Up," for which she is nominated for best original song, and potential record-breaking moments.

Don't miss the biggest night in film. Here's how to tune in.

The Oscars will take place on Sunday, March 12 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California. They begin at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT.

For red carpet coverage, you can tune into E! starting at 5 p.m. ET / 2 p.m. PT. Alternatively, the official red carpet show, "Countdown to the Oscars," will start airing at 6:30 p.m. ET on ABC.

What channel can I watch the Oscars on in 2023?

This year, the Oscars will be televised live on ABC. You can also access the Academy Awards online by logging into and the ABC app through your cable provider.

Those without cable can stream ABC on services like Sling TV, YouTube TV or Hulu + Live TV. Many of these subscription services offer a free trial, which you can activate the day of the Oscars.

Here’s what you need to know about how to watch and stream the 2023 Oscars live:

The Oscars begin at 8 p.m. ET and air on ABC, which is available with an antenna or through cable and satellite providers.

For cord cutters, the show can be streamed with a subscription to Hulu Live TV, YouTubeTV, AT&T TV and Fubo TV.

Trying to watch the show outside the United States? The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has a handy guide about which channels in more than 200 countries will broadcast the show.

There’s much more of the Oscar experience that can be watched and streamed. The Oscars red carpet, a major fashion event in its own right, starts at 3:30 p.m. Eastern. The Oscars’ official pre-show begins at 1:30 p.m. on YouTube. The Associated Press will livestream the first 90 minutes of arrivals on YouTube as well. The venerable fashion breakdowns by E! will start at 6 p.m. Eastern, and ABC will have its own coverage on air and on ABC News Live.

Once the show is over, it’s time for the stars to party. Vanity Fair throws the quintessential Oscars afterparty — it’s where Will Smith and family danced the night away after the infamous Slap moment and best actor win last year. The AP will livestream stars arriving for the show beginning at 11 p.m. ET on YouTube.
