How to watch the Oscars online
It’s time for Hollywood’s biggest night.
On Sunday, March 4, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will hand out their annual awards, known as the Oscars, and the Best Picture of 2017 will be crowned. Many questions still remain, ranging from what will be the biggest fashion trend on the red carpet to how visible the Time’s Up movement will be to whether or not returning host Jimmy Kimmel will reference last year’s envelope-gate (we’re guessing yes).
If you don’t want to miss a second of the glitz, glamour, and excitement, we’ve got you covered with the lowdown on how to stream the annual awards ceremony.
If you have a regular television and basic cable, you can watch the Oscars live on ABC. The red carpet telecast begins on the network at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT. E!’s Live on the Red Carpet begins at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT, and PeopleTV’s PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Red Carpet Live pre-show also begins at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT on PEOPLE and EW’s streaming network, PeopleTV, in partnership with Twitter. (The show also can be streamed from PEOPLE.com, EW.com, InStyle.com, Time.com, Facebook Live, and YouTube Live.)
