Where to watch the Oscar nominations

You’ve been catching up on movies for months. You’ve been watching every ceremony, tracking every guild nomination, and noting every appearance that might help a star’s chances. The (first round of) votes are in. Oscar nominations are finally upon us.

The announcement goes live next week. Now read on for how to tune in, and get ready to make your ballot for Hollywood’s Super Bowl.

When are the Oscar nominations?

It all goes down on Tuesday, Jan. 23. The first round of announcements, for nominees in cinematography, costume design, film editing, makeup and hairstyling, original score, production design, animated short film, live action short film, sound editing, sound mixing, and visual effects, will take place at the oddly specific time of 5:22 a.m. PT/8:22 a.m. ET. After those have been shared, the nominations for actor in a leading role, actor in a supporting role, actress in a leading role, actress in a supporting role, animated feature film, directing, documentary feature, documentary short subject, foreign language film, original song, best picture, adapted screenplay, and original screenplay will be announced at 5:38:30 a.m. PT/8:38:30 a.m. ET (and not 30 seconds sooner).

Where can I watch?

You can catch the announcement on a global live stream on Oscar.com, Oscars.org, the Academy’s digital platforms, a satellite feed, and local broadcasters. You can also watch right here on EW.com on Tuesday morning, via the live stream.

Who’s announcing them?

The stars who will make the announcement, from the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, have not yet been announced. But if past years are any indication, the list will likely include former winners and nominees, as well as newly elected Academy president John Bailey.

When are the actual Oscars?

The 90th Academy Awards will take place Sunday, March 4, and will air live on ABC. Apparently all that best picture drama last year didn’t put off Jimmy Kimmel, who will host the ceremony for the second year in a row. “If you think we screwed up the ending [last] year, wait until you see what we have planned for the 90th anniversary show!” Kimmel said in a statement. We can’t wait.
