In just a few days, the 2023 awards season will come to a climax with arguably the most significant event in entertainment: the 2023 Oscars, airing this Sunday, March 12.
With so many acclaimed films up for awards — Everything Everywhere All At Once, Top Gun: Maverick, Elvis and All Quiet On the Western Front, just to name a few — the 95th Academy Awards are shaping up to be one of the toughest film awards competitions yet.
This year, viewers have plenty to look forward to, from the elusive Rihanna’s musical performance and Jimmy Kimmel’s return to hosting to watching Michelle Yeoh and Cate Blanchett vie for best actress. Following last year’s infamous slap, the Oscars promise to be a little tamer this time around — a crisis team has been brought on board in the wake of the incident.
Aside from the aforementioned, some of the biggest talents up for awards this year include Austin Butler, Ana de Armas, Paul Mescal, Angela Bassett, Colin Farrell, Brendan Fraser, Jamie Lee Curtis, Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, Hong Chau, Barry Keoghan, Michelle Williams and so many more.
While we count down the days until Sunday, here’s everything you need to know to prepare for the 2023 Oscar awards, including where and when to stream the awards ceremony this weekend.
When are the 2023 Oscars?
This year, the Oscars will air live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles this Sunday, March 12 beginning at 8 p.m. EST. Daylight saving time begins March 12, so keep that in mind when scheduling your watch party.
Where to stream the Oscars this year:
The 2023 Academy Awards will air live on ABC. The Oscars will also be available to stream on Sling TV,fuboTV and Hulu + Live TV.
Who is hosting the 2023 Oscars?
Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel will host the Oscars this year, making it his third time leading the show. His last time hosting was in 2018, which was also the last time the Oscars had a solo host.
“There are only two ways to prepare for the Oscars broadcast. One is to write a ton of jokes,” Kimmel told ABC. “And the other is to try and fit into your tuxedo. So I’ve been writing and starving.”
Who is presenting at the 2023 Oscars?
This year’s list of presenters is absolutely stacked. On Thursday, the Academy added to an already impressive slate: Halle Berry, Paul Dano, Cara Delevingne, Harrison Ford, Kate Hudson, Mindy Kaling, Eva Longoria, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Andie MacDowell, Elizabeth Olsen, Pedro Pascal and John Travolta.
Previously announced presenters are Halle Bailey, Antonio Banderas, Nicole Kidman, Jessica Chastain, John Cho, Danai Gurira, Florence Pugh, Sigourney Weaver, Andrew Garfield, Salma Hayek Pinault, Elizabeth Banks, Riz Ahmed, Emily Blunt, Glenn Close, Jennifer Connelly, Ariana DeBose, Samuel L.

Jordan, Troy Kostur, Jonathan Majors, Melissa McCarthy, Janelle Monae, Deepika Padukone, Questlove, Zoe Saldana and Donnie Yen are all slated to present on Oscar Sunday.
