It’s the biggest night of awards seasons this weekend with the 89th Academy Awards taking place on Sunday night and into the early hours of Monday morning.

‘La La Land’ and ‘Moonlight’ have dominated at the BAFTAs, Golden Globes, and countless other awards show so far, but will they hog the limelight at the Oscars come Sunday?

Here’s everything you need to know about Hollywood’s glitziest night of the year, the 2017 Oscars.

When are the 2017 Academy Awards?

The 89th Academy Awards, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, are being held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on Sunday, 26 February, 2017. However, due to time zone differences, the ceremony doesn’t actually take place in the UK until Monday morning with the live show kicking off at around 1:30am on 27 February, 2017.

The Oscars will be broadcast live and exclusively in the UK on Sky Cinema’s dedicated Oscars channel. Festivities begin at 11:10pm on Sunday night with a 20 minute nominations special, followed by a 2-hour red carpet preview show hosted by Alex Zane.

The ceremony itself will then kick off at 1:30am Monday morning before wrapping up with the Best Picture award at around 5am.

If you don’t have a Sky subscription you can also get Sky Cinema Oscars with a Sky Cinema Pass on Now TV which is currently offering a 14-day free trial, no contract required.

Who is presenting?

Jimmy Kimmel

TV chat show host Jimmy Kimmel is hosting the 2017 Oscars for the very first time. Many will expect Kimmel to hard on President Trump in the opening monologue, but he recently told Variety it probably wasn’t the appropriate time or place. “I don’t think it will be very political,” he said of his opening speech. “There will be some element of that to the show. A lot of it depends on what happens.”

The award presenters announced so far include Amy Adams, Riz Ahmed, Javier Bardem, Halle Berry, John Cho, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Dornan, Chris Evans, Gael Garcia Bernal, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Dakota Johnson, Dwayne Johnson, Felicity Jones, Brie Larson, Shirley MacLaine Leslie Mann, Kate McKinnon, Janelle Monáe, David Oyelowo, Mark Rylance, Hailee Steinfeld, Emma Stone, Charlize Theron, and Alicia Vikander.

Who will perform?


All five songs nominated for Music (Original Song) will be performed during the live broadcast.

Auli’i Cravalho will join Lin-Manuel Miranda to perform ‘How Far I’ll Go’ from ‘Moana’, Sting will perform ‘The Empty Chair’ from ‘Jim: The James Foley Story’, Justin Timberlake will perform ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ from the animated movie ‘Trolls’, and John Legend will perform both ‘Audition (The Fools Who Dream)’ and ‘City of Stars’, from ‘La La Land’.

Who has been nominated?

‘La La Land’ leads the pack on the night with a record-equalling 14 nominations in total. ‘Arrival’ and ‘Moonlight’ both have 8 nominations, while ‘Hacksaw Ridge’, ‘Lion’, and ‘Manchester By The Sea’ each have 6.
