How to live stream the red carpet

The red carpet for the Oscars streams live on the official Oscars Twitter account @TheAcademy and on ABC. The red carpet show normally starts at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time (U.S.), and you can catch all the glitz and glam on the red carpet then.

Who is hosting the Oscars?

For the third consecutive year, the Oscars did not have a host for the 2020 Oscars, and several celebrities stepped up instead to introduce segments of the ceremony. While this could be a possible trend, they may re-introduce hosts for 2021’s Academy Awards, so check back later.

Who are the 2021 Oscar nominees?

Who will be taking home an Oscar in 2021? Stay tuned for the full list of 2021 Oscar nominees later this year.

  1. Can you provide information on how to stream Formula 1 when the season starts. SKY in the UK provides the show. I would like to watch the SKY feed in Canada if possible.
