Oscars 2017: how to watch online, time, TV channel And live stream Free

Hear ye, hear ye: The Oscars are upon us once again. Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the 89th annual Academy Awards ceremony, which airs Sunday, February 26, at 8:30 pm EST on ABC. The event will officially conclude a long awards season marked by repeat winners (we see you, La La Land) and increasingly incendiary acceptance speeches wrapping politics into the usual glitz and glamour (hello, Meryl Streep!).

The complete ranking of this year’s Oscar-nominated films

The 2017 Oscars have already seen their fair share of controversy, and we’re not even talking about La La Land’s likely Best Picture win over critical darling Moonlight. In January, President Trump’s controversial immigration ban threw the attendance of some nominees into question. The Syrian rescue workers at the center of Best Documentary Feature nominee The White Helmets have secured visas to attend the ceremony, but according to the Associated Press, the Department of Homeland Security blocked its cinematographer Khaled Khateeb from entering the country. Iranian director (and previous Oscar winner) Asghar Farhadi, who helmed Best Foreign Film nominee The Salesman, declared that he wouldn’t attend the ceremony even if he were granted an exception. The same is true for Salesman star Taraneh Alidoosti.

And since acceptance speeches that call out the president and his policies have become something of a mainstay this awards season, it’s a pretty safe bet that the Oscars will continue that trend.

Of course, you can also expect the ceremony to hit its traditional beats, with plenty of celebration and Hollywood back patting. There’s also a chance that La La Land, with its 14 nominations, could break the Oscars’ all-time record for the most wins by a single film if takes home more than the 11 awards won by Titanic, Ben Hur, and Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.

This year’s Best Original Song performances — sometimes the most entertaining part of the show — will include Moana’s Lin-Manuel Miranda singing “How Far I’ll Go” with star Auli’i Cravalho; John Legend taking on both of La La Land’s two nominated songs (“City of Stars” and “Audition (The Fools Who Dream)”); and Sting crooning “The Empty Chair” from the documentary Jim: The James Foley Story.

And yes, Justin Timberlake will finally get the moment he’s been waiting for throughout his hundreds of appearances on the worldwide Trolls tour with a rousing performance intended to prove that no matter how hard we try, we “Can’t Stop the Feeling.”

But rather than subject you to more Timberlake snark, here’s how you can watch this year’s Oscars from the comfort of your own home. Come back to Vox on Sunday night for our live coverage of the ceremony!

89th Academy Awards

The 2017 Oscar Nominations

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ nominations will be announced Tuesday morning via live stream, airing on the Oscars’ various digital platforms and on ABC’s Good Morning America.

The nominees for each of the 24 categories will be announced by a host of past Oscar winners, including Brie Larson (who won last year’s “Best Actress” award for Room), Jennifer Hudson (2007 “Best Supporting Actress”), Emmanuel Lubezki (multiple-Oscar winner for “Best Cinematography”), Jason Reitman, and Ken Watanabe.

La La Land, Moonlight, Fences, Manchester by the Sea, and Hell or High Water will likely walk away with more than one nomination—including “Best Picture”—based on both the popularity of the films as well as their multiple nominations at the Golden Globes earlier this month.

Expected contenders for this year’s “Best Actor” and “Best Actress” are mostly predictable, thanks to standout performances from Hollywood’s finest in the aforementioned buzziest films of the year.

The 2017 Oscars: 15 Craziest Snubs and Surprises

Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea), Denzel Washington (Fences), and Ryan Gosling (La La Land) are all safe bets for “Best Actor,” but Jake Gyllenhaal (Nocturnal Animals) and Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge) are also top contenders for the five spots.

As for “Best Actress,” Emma Stone (La La Land) is a clear favorite, as is Amy Adams for her role as alien-interpreter in Arrival and Natalie Portman for her convincing turn as first lady Jackie O. in Jackie. Other shortlisted names include Hollywood’s queen, Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins), Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures), and Isabelle Huppert (for the rape-revenge thriller Elle).

While nominations for the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice Awards, and SAG Awards may give a hint as to what we can expect from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ list, there are always at least a half-dozen major snubs and surprises that can be anticipated from any awards nominee list.

So tune in Tuesday morning at 8:18 a.m. ET to watch the official announcement live and Oscars.org for the complete list.
