The biggest awards ceremony on the planet is almost here and we’ve got our night all planned out. But have you? Well, you’re in luck as we’re here to tell you how to watch the Oscars live stream online or on your TV tonight. And it doesn’t matter what country you’re in, as we’ve done our research to ensure you don’t miss a moment of the 2020 Academy Awards. There are even some free options available too.
So, roll out the red carpet, iron the creases out of the tuxedos and send for the haute-couture gowns (or yanno, get the chips and dips at the ready)… it’s time for the Oscars.
Following last year’s success, the 92nd Academy Awards will once again be going host-less, they will be relying on its presenters for individual awards instead. And if you’re ready to make your 2020 Oscars predictions, our money’s on the Joker winning a couple of awards, it has 11 Oscar nominations! Or perhaps we will see Scarlett Johansson go home with two trophies – one for best supporting actress and the other for best actress. Or are you tuning in to see if Martin Scorsese wins Best Director? Best Picture is a hot pick this year too with The Irishman, Joker and 1917 being amongst the favorites.
Don’t forget the entertainment section of the ceremony either – multi-grammy award winner and relative newcomer Billie Eilish is set to bring her unique and critically acclaimed brand of dark pop to the show. Sir Elton John, Randy “You’ve got a friend in me” Newman and Broadway legend Idina Menzel – the singer behind Frozen’s Let It Go – will also be gracing the audience with performances.
So whether you’re ready to see the best-dressed stars or you’ve got your fingers crossed that Joaquin Phoenix wins best actor simply keep reading to find out how you can get an Oscars 2020 live stream from anywhere in the world.
The 92nd Academy Awards is set to take place in the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, February 9 at 5pm PT / 8pm ET/ 1am GMT and midday AEDT on Monday.
Similarly to last year, ABC once again will be airing the Oscars in the US. So as long as ABC is one of the television channels you can get as a part of your current TV package, then grab the popcorn, sit back and relax!
It’s a bit trickier to watch the Oscars online, you’ll only be able to live stream on abc.com and via the network’s app on a few select locations. These include Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham and San Francisco. And you’ll only be able to do this if you have a participating TV provider. You’ll have to sign in to your account too.
However, you do have other options including Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now and YouTubeTV.
