Look alive movie fans, the biggest night in the film industry has arrived. The 95th Academy Awards ceremony is today and we’ll soon be learning which 2022 films are worthy of Oscar gold.

If you’re keen on keeping up to date on all the latest from this year’s Academy Awards ceremony, we’ll do our best to keep you posted right here with a list of all the most important details regarding the event.

When will the Oscars take place and where can you watch them?

The Oscars are once again being held in March with the date being March 12 in the U.S. which makes it Monday, March 13 in Australia.

In 2023, the Oscars will once again be broadcast on Channel 7 and on its companion app 7plus. The glamour will begin hitting your screen as of 11:00 am AEDT with an encore screening set for 8:45 pm AEDT.

If you want extra Oscars content to sink your teeth into, Sunrise will begin coverage from 5:30 am AEDT, and on 7Bravo, you’ll be able to tune into Live from E!: Oscars from 8:00 am AEDT.

Some cinemas also hold special screenings of the Academy Awards that you can attend in person so check your local theatre to see if they’re holding any events.

Where will the Oscars be held?

As usual, the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, will play host to the 2023 Oscars.

Yes, the Oscars ceremony will be broadcast live. ABC holds the rights in the U.S. and will be broadcasting and streaming all the action as it happens, as will hundreds of other territories around the world.

Last year the Oscars pre-taped eight of the 23 awards in the ceremony. It was a controversial move and wasn’t well-received on the night, so it’s unclear if that will be the case again this year.

Who is this year’s Oscars host?

Last year’s Oscars were hosted by the trio of Wanda Skyes, Amy Schumer and Regina Hall.

In 2023 hosting duties will return to a regular favourite, Jimmy Kimmel, marking his third time hosting the Academy Awards.

As for the presenters it’s going to be a star-studded affair with some of Hollywood’s biggest actors presenting on the night including Pedro Pascal, Elizabeth Olsen and Harrison Ford.
