Unmissable! Your Ultimate Guide to Watching the 2024 Oscars & Red Carpet Extravaganza!

Prepare your Oscars bingo cards: The 96th Academy Awards is set to spotlight “Abbott Elementary” this weekend.

The crème de la crème of the movie industry will converge at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood on Sunday for the 2024 Oscars, referred to by this reporter as the ultimate (film) awards ceremony.

Will “Oppenheimer,” Christopher Nolan’s grand exploration of the man often seen as the architect of the nuclear bomb, reign supreme as many awards predictors believe? Will Ryan Gosling’s live rendition of “Barbie’s” “I’m Just Ken” be the night’s standout musical performance? Stay tuned to find out.

When is the show?

The 96th Academy Awards will take place on March 10 at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood. The ceremony will begin at 4 p.m. Pacific — an hour earlier than previous years — and is projected to last for 3½ hours.

(Don’t forget to adjust your clocks forward at 2 a.m. Sunday for daylight saving time.)

How can I watch?

The Oscars broadcast will be shown live on ABC. Those with conventional pay TV subscriptions can use their login credentials to watch the livestream on abc.com and the ABC app.

For those without cable, a subscription to the live-TV tier of their chosen service — such as Hulu + Live TV, YouTubeTV, AT&T TV or FuboTV — or a TV equipped with the suitable digital antenna to receive the local broadcast is required.

What about the red-carpet shows?

ABC’s Oscars-centric programming will start at 10 a.m. PT with “Countdown to the Oscars: On the Red Carpet.” At 1 p.m., the network will hand over to the on-site team with “On the Red Carpet at the Oscars.” “The Oscars Red Carpet Show,” hosted by Vanessa Hudgens and Julianne Hough, will kick off at 3:30 p.m.

As is tradition, E! will dedicate a portion of its Sunday schedule to the Oscars, commencing with “E!’s Brunch at the Oscars” at 11 a.m., and then moving onto “E! Live From the Red Carpet,” hosted by Laverne Cox, at 1 p.m.

Who is hosting?

Jimmy Kimmel, the late-night TV host whose show airs on ABC, is set to host the Oscars for the fourth time.

“This year, I found myself sitting in a cinema watching ‘Barbie’ and wondering, ‘Perhaps I’ll do this again, because now I have a common reference point with everyone,’” Kimmel confided to The Times regarding his decision to host again. Knowing “there was a movie that people had seen … just makes the job easier.”

What is nominated?

“Oppenheimer” tops the list with 13 nominations, trailed by “Poor Things” with 11 nods and “Killers of the Flower Moon” with 10. “Barbie,” the summer’s major box office hit, secured eight nominations. All three are contenders for the night’s top accolade.
