Welcome, friends, it’s January and the Academy Awards still don’t have a host thanks to Kevin Hart dropping out over his homophobic tweets! Do you want to host? Because, to be honest, they seem sort of desperate! In any case, Hollywood’s most major awards show is going down in February, and it promises to be just as dramatic and messy as usual. Though, obviously nothing can ever beat this:
Clearly it’s very important that you tune in—but, like, what if you don’t have a television because you’ve spent all your money on things like sheet masks and pizza? I gotchu.
No TV? No Problem, My Dude
The Oscars are airing February 24 on ABC at 8:00 p.m. ET, which is exciting for people who own a television. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF US? Fortunately, there are options. If you have a computer or a phone, you should be able to easily stream the show at abc.com or through the ABC app. If you don’t have either of these, I can only assume you’ve time-traveled from 1995, in which case, surprise: Trump is president!
Side note: The Academy had this fun thing called The Oscars: All Access last year which they’ll hopefully dust off again in 2019 because it hooked viewers up with red carpet interviews and took them backstage during the show itself.
F*ck The Oscars, Tell Me How to Watch the Red Carpet
Wow, okay, calm down. First of all, you’re in luck because there are two red carpets! The ABC one (which is more ~serious~ in tone) will air right before the show, and you can stream it on their site or app. Meanwhile, E! will be doing it’s usual messy/amazing/iconic thing with Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic—and while they’ve yet to confirm a time, you can expect them to start around 6:00 p.m. ET.
More streaming specifics (and hopefully a few fully free options) should become available as we get closer to the awards, so stay tuned.
