The 92nd Academy Awards are hours away, and, with it, our biggest awards season questions will have answers: Will Joaquin Phoenix and Brad Pitt win their first acting Oscars? Can “Parasite” make history as the first South Korean movie to take home an Academy Award? Will “1917” win Best Picture and Best Director? The 2020 Oscars are airing tonight on ABC beginning at 8pm ET/5pm PT. The show will air without host for the second year in a row. ABC is offering various ways for viewers to live stream both the red carpet and the awards ceremony broadcast online.

ABC’s 2020 Oscars pre-show is set to begin at 6:30pm ET/3:30pm PT and will be live streamed on the official ABC website and ABC app. Viewers will need to log into both platforms using their cable subscription username and password. The pre-show includes the network’s red carpet coverage. The Academy will start live streaming from the Oscars red carpet on Twitter earlier in the day. A free red carpet stream will launch on Twitter at 3:30pm ET/12:30pm PT. The Academy’s red carpet live stream will be available at https://twitter.com/theacademy or via @TheAcademy.

As for the Oscars telecast, the ABC website and ABC app will be home to the official ABC live stream of the 92nd Academy Awards. Again, viewers will need their cable subscription in order to log in and access the live streams on the ABC website and ABC app. The ABC telecast of the Oscars can also be live streamed for subscribers of AT&T Now, Hulu with Live TV, and YouTube TV. These various streaming services can be accessed on Amazon Fire TV Stick, Roku TV, and Apple TV.

This year’s Oscars are dominated by Todd Phillips “Joker,” the comic book drama starring Joaquin Phoenix as the infamous Batman villain. “Joker” earned 11 Academy Award nominations to become the most-nominated film of 2020. Phoenix is expected to take home the Best Actor trophy, while composer Hildur Guðnadóttir is the frontrunner in the Best Original Score race. Right behind “Joker” are “The Irishman,” “1917,” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” all of which have 10 Oscar nominations. “Hollywood” star Brad Pitt is the frontrunner in the Best Supporting Actor race, while Tarantino’s script is battling “Parasite” for Best Original Screenplay. “1917” is excepted to dominate the craft categories while landing Sam Mendes his second Oscar for Best Director after “American Beauty.” “The Irishman” might become the rare film to earn 10 nominations and leave the ceremony empty handed.
