Oscars 2019: Online streaming, nominees, red carpet and many more

Oscars 2019, aka the 91st annual Academy Awards, is this Sunday. As if you didn’t know.

But maybe you don’t know where you can stream the show live, the start times and everything else necessary to make your Oscars 2019 experience go off without a hitch.

That’s where we come in. We’ve listed the top ways to watch online — including free options that are nice and legal — as well who’s nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor and all the rest. Yes, Black Panther is up for best picture (as well as best costume design) and might even have a slight chance, but it’s not our top prediction.

When do the Oscars 2019 start?

This year the Oscars take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, Feb. 24. The whole event starts at 8 p.m. ET. 

Of course, if you’re interested in the dresses, the pre-event interviews and all the red carpet watching, you’ll want to start watching at around 90 minutes before at around 6:30 p.m. ET.

Where can I stream the Oscars 2019 online?

For audiences in the US, ABC is streaming the live broadcast of the Oscars on the ABC website, but only to specific cities and only after you sign in with a participating pay TV provider — typically a cable company, satellite provider or live streaming service. Click here for details.

If you subscribe to a live TV streaming service that carries ABC in your city, you can use it to watch the Oscars too. DirecTV Now, Hulu with Live TV, PlayStation Vue and YouTube TV all carry ABC in most US cities. All of them offer a 7-day free trial, so you can sign up now and cancel after the ceremony if you want. Note that Sling TV, Fubo TV, AT&T Watch Now and Philo do not carry ABC at all.

Where can I stream the red carpet?

The earlier red carpet proceedings will be streamed live on Twitter. You can watch by following the Academy Awards official Twitter account here.
