Awards shows are really back, despite…everything. While the ceremonies may not look quite like they did in past years, Hollywood will still find ways to celebrate its achievements, and we’ll still watch. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the 2021 Oscars.


When are the 2021 Oscars?

The Oscars, which usually air in February, have been pushed to later in the year than usual, and will air on April 25, 2021. The telecast will be carried on ABC starting at 5 p.m.

Who is hosting the Oscars?

We don’t yet know about a specific host–the show did fine without one in the pre-pandemic years–but the Academy has unveiled that the event will be helmed by Oscar-winning filmmakers Steven Soderbergh and Stacey Sher, along with Jesse Collins, the Emmy-nominated producer of the Grammy Awards telecast.

Will the show be in-person or remote? 

The program will be at least partially in-person, but taking place with smaller groups at multiple locations, with the Dolby Theater remaining the home base. “The Academy is determined to present an Oscars like none other, while prioritizing the public health and safety of all those who will participate,” an Academy statement says.

Who is nominated for the 2021 Oscars?

Oscar nominations will be announced on Monday, March 15. This week, the Academy released the “shortlists” for nine major categories, giving insight into at least some of the ultimate noms.
