The Oscars Live Stream are taking center stage Sunday after a whirlwind award season filled with political commentary, surprise winners and an overall dominant display by red-hot movie musical “La La Land.”Here’s everything you need to before the 89th Academy Awards.Sara Bareilles to perform ‘in memoriam’ tribute at OscarsAfter sweeping its seven nominations at last month’s Golden Globes, “La La Land” is poised for an even bigger haul Sunday after tying an Oscars record with 14 nominations.
It won’t be easy. To win best picture — the ceremony’s highest honor — the feel-good flick must beat out fellow critically acclaimed heavyweights “Moonlight,” “Manchester by the Sea” and “Hidden Figures,” which won the equivalent honor at the SAG Awards in a surprise.
“La La Land” star Ryan Gosling is up against Golden Globe winner Casey Affleck (“Manchester by the Sea”) and SAGs winner Denzel Washington (“Fences”) for best actor, while Emma Stone (“La La Land”) enters as the frontrunner for best actress.Aside from “La La Land,” look for “Moonlight,” which received eight nominations, to turn in a big showing at the Oscars as well.Jimmy Kimmel says Oscars monologue will depend on President Trump
When and Where is the show?
The Oscars, widely regarded as the film industry’s biggest night, once again takes place at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, where it’s been held every year since 2002.
The show begins 8:30 p.m. ET, with coverage from the red carpet kicking off at 7 p.m. ET. This year’s event airs on ABC.Jimmy Kimmel, whose late-night show is broadcasted on ABC, is set to host his first-ever Academy Awards.The veteran funnyman will follow in the footsteps of late-night rival Jimmy Fallon, who emceed the Golden Globes, and James Corden, who hosted the Grammys.Neither was particularly critical of President Oscars Live Stream Trump during their stage time — unlike many of this season’s award presenters and recipients — but Kimmel won’t commit to making his show any more or less political than others.”My guess is that there will probably be some new crazy thing we’re all talking about, so it really depends largely on what’s going on that week,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.

The awards are voted on by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences — often shortened to “The Academy” during acceptance speeches.The organization consists of roughly 6,000 film professionals, which are divided into 17 different branches based on their connection to the industry.Those in The Academy are kept secret from the public, and people around the world are eligible to become members if they’re deemed qualified. The majority of the roster, however, is located in the United States.

Who will present the awards?
Confirmed presenters include last year’s four big acting winners: Leonardo DiCaprio (who’ll be presenting the Best Sctress Award), Brie Larson (Best Actor), Mark Rylance (Best Supporting Actress) and Alicia Vikander (Best Supporting Actor).Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway will present the award for Best Picture, and Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) will present the award for Best Song.
Samuel L. Jackson, Amy Adams, David Oyelowo, Emma Stone, Charlize Theron, Dakota Johnson, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Halle Berry, Jamie Dornan, Gael García Bernal, Shirley MacLaine, Kate McKinnon and Hailee Steinfeld will also be handing out awards on the night.
For weeks now, Oscar pundits and awards-circuit journalists have been saying virtually the same thing: La La Land should dominate the night; Zootopia has all but picked up its statuette and put it on a mantel; the impeccably written Manchester by the Sea will almost assuredly go home with the Best Original Screenplay award Oscars Live Stream. When narratives like this cement themselves around the Academy Awards, as they do almost every year, it’s tough to shake off what seems like an inevitability. But as anyone who’s been covering the show for a minute or three knows, there is no such thing as a completely sure thing. (Just ask the late Lauren Bacall, or Michael Keaton, or anyone who was nominated for Best Picture opposite Chariots of Fire.)
Some of these “it’s a lock” races may, in fact, be a closer-run contest than you think – and yes, that includes the Best Pic slot, City-of-Angels–loving musical or not. With that in mind, we’ve asked a number of film writers to weigh in on six Oscars categories that have the potential for major upsets come this Sunday evening. You may want to reconsider these half dozen “sure things,” folks, before you turn in those last-minute office pools.
There are years when this category registers Oscars Live Stream as little more than a blip on the radar (see: Jimmy Napes and Sam Smith’s snoozy “Writing’s on the Wall,” which tookthe statuette in 2016). But given that musical fantasia La La Land has not one but two of its tunes from Justin Hurwitz, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul’s soundtrack up for the award – the moving “Audition (The Fools Who Dream)” and the inescapable “City of Stars” – people are paying a bit more attention. In any other year either would be a shoe-in … except for the fact that Lin-Manuel “I Wrote Hamilton” Miranda also has a horse in this race. His “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana is the best “I Want” song Disney has dropped since “Let It Go.” Could it pull ahead and upset La La Land‘s streak?
