How to Watch the 2023 Oscars


The 2022 Academy Awards were remarkable in many ways. CODA, a heartwarming film produced by Apple TV+, made history by becoming the first movie released by a streaming service to win the Best Picture award. Its lively star Troy Kotsur also made history by becoming the first deaf man to win an Oscar for acting. Ariana DeBose, who starred in West Side Story, also made history as the first openly queer woman of color to win Best Supporting Actress. Additionally, Will Smith made a memorable impact before winning Best Actor with a stunning viral moment that will be remembered for years to come. With all these amazing achievements, many are curious to see what the 2023 ceremony will bring. Here is everything we currently know.

The 95th Academy Awards are scheduled to take place on Sunday, March 12, 2023.

To watch the Oscars ceremony, you can tune in to ABC at 8:00pm Eastern Time, or use streaming services like Hulu Live TV, YouTubeTV, or FuboTV. If you want to catch the red carpet arrivals, E! will begin coverage at 5:00pm Eastern.

The 2021 ceremony was held at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles due to the pandemic, allowing for socially distanced seating. Last year, it returned to its regular home since 2002, the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center. The 2023 event will also be held in the same venue, which has now been renamed Ovation Hollywood.

After three years of hostless ceremonies, Amy Schumer, Regina Hall, and Wanda Sykes shared hosting duties for the 2022 Oscars, which received mixed reviews. This time, the hosting duties will be handed back to Jimmy Kimmel, who previously hosted the Oscars in 2017 and 2018. Kimmel famously presided over the ceremony in 2017 when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly announced La La Land as the Best Picture winner before the mistake was corrected, and Moonlight was awarded the statuette. Kimmel aims to avoid any similar errors this time around. In a statement released on November 7, 2022, Kimmel said, "Being invited to host the Oscars for a third time is either a great honor or a trap. Either way, I am grateful to the Academy for asking me so quickly after everyone good said no."


CNN confirmed on February 23 that Rihanna will perform "Lift Me Up" from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever at the 2023 Oscars, following her Super Bowl halftime show. Three other nominated songs will also be performed: "Applause" (from Tell It like a Woman), "Naatu Naatu" (RRR), and "This Is a Life" (Everything Everywhere All at Once). The only nominated song that will not be performed live is "Hold My Hand" from Top Gun: Maverick. Lady Gaga informed producers that she would not be able to prepare a musical number because of her commitments to filming the Warner Bros' DC sequel Joker: Folie à Deux with Joaquin Phoenix.

Celebrities who will be presenting awards at the 2023 Oscars on Sunday night include Halle Berry, Paul Dano, Cara Delevingne, Harrison Ford, Mindy Kaling, Eva Longoria, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Kate Hudson, Andie MacDowell, Elizabeth Olsen, Pedro Pascal, John Travolta, Dwayne Johnson, Ariana DeBose, Jonathan Majors, Andrew Garfield, Florence Pugh, Halle Bailey, Antonio Banderas, Elizabeth Banks, Jessica Chastain, John Cho, Hugh Grant, Danai Gurira, Salma Hayek Pinault, Nicole Kidman, Sigourney Weaver, Riz Ahmed, Emily Blunt, Glenn Close, Jennifer Connelly, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael B. Jordan, Troy Kotsur, Melissa McCarthy, Janelle Monáe, Deepika Padukone, Questlove, Zoe Saldaña, and Donnie Yen.

Currently, there is limited information available about the format and schedule of the 2023 Oscars ceremony. However, a November 29 report from Variety has revealed that all 23 categories will be included in the live telecast, unlike in 2022 when eight categories were presented off the air and then edited into the show later on. This decision prompted backlash from the industry. Bill Kramer, CEO of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, confirmed the news to the publication and stated that the show aims to celebrate the collaborative nature of moviemaking and all aspects of it in an entertaining and engaging way, which aligns with the Academy's mission.
