With the Golden Globes behind us, the SAG Awards just ahead, and all the prestige pictures of 2016 still in theaters, there’s no mistaking it — Oscar season is upon us!

The much-anticipated announcement of this year’s crop of Academy Awards nominees is fast approaching, so start making your predictions now! Then be sure to tune into the live broadcast on Tuesday — we’ve got all the details below.

When are the Oscar nominations?
The 2017 Oscar nominees will be announced at 8:18 a.m. ET/5:18 a.m. PT on Tuesday, Jan. 24. The announcement will be delivered in a slightly altered format this year, as the Academy has opted to do away with the traditional live audience for a global live stream of the event. Viewers can catch it on EW.com Oscar.com, Oscars.org, the Academy’s digital platforms, a satellite feed, and local broadcasters, including Good Morning America.

Who’s announcing them?
This year’s nominees will be announced by last year’s Best Actress winner Brie Larson; 2007’s Best Supporting Actress winner Jennifer Hudson; eight-time nominee Emmanuel Lubezki, who won Best Cinematography the last three years in a row; four-time nominee Jason Reitman; 2004 nominee Ken Watanabe; and Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs.

When are the actual Oscars?
The 89th Academy Awards are scheduled for Feb. 26, and will air live on ABC. Jimmy Kimmel, whose Jimmy Kimmel Live! is also broadcast on the network, will host the ceremony for the first time, having previously emceed the Emmys twice, among other awards shows.
