The 93rd Academy Awards are almost upon us.
This year’s ceremony will look different from usual, as producers have had to work around the pandemic – but there will still be a television broadcast to watch, both in the US and the UK.
The 2021 Oscars will take place on 25 April. Instead of the Dolby Theatre, the ceremony’s usual home, this year’s event will be based out of Union Station, the main railway station in Los Angeles, famous for its blend of Art Deco and Mission Revival architectural styles.
Live coverage of the ceremony will begin much earlier in the day – as early as Sunday morning. ABC recommends checking local listings to find the correct channel. The network will air a pre-Oscars show, titled Oscars: Into the Spotlight, from 6:30pm ET/3:30pm PT.
In the UK, viewers will be able to follow the ceremony live, too. The Oscars will air on Sky Cinema’s Oscars channel, starting at 1am on 26 April.
UK viewers can also stream the ceremony online through NOW.
The Oscars usually last around three hours, although the exact duration varies depending on the length of acceptance speeches and other segments.
This year’s Best Picture nominees are The Father, Judas and the Black Messiah, Mank, Minari, Nomadland, Promising Young Woman, Sound of Metal, and The Trial of the Chicago 7.
