Hollywood’s biggest night is back! The 95th Academy Awards are set to take place this Sunday, March 12. The awards ceremony will begin at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Jimmy Kimmel hosts the show for a third time, with presenters like Jonathan Majors, Florence Pugh, Jessica Chastain, and more set to take the stage.

ABC will broadcast the awards show live, with a stream also available on Hulu Live TV, YouTubeTV, AT&T TV, and FuboTV, according to the official Oscars page. (The next day, March 13, the ceremony will also be available to stream on Hulu for those with a standard subscription.)

Live musical performances will include Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up,” nominated for Best Song from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” and Rahul Sipligunj and Kala Bhairava, who will sing MM Keeravaani’s “Naatu Naatu” from “RRR.” Lady Gaga will (as of print) not be performing “Top Gun: Maverick” ballad “Hold My Hand” due to the “Joker” sequel’s production schedule; however, fans can look forward to Lenny Kravitz’s “In Memoriam” song.

Winner predictions for each category also tighten the Best Actress race, with “TÁR” star Cate Blanchett and “Everything Everywhere All at Once” actress Michelle Yeoh in a narrow battle to take home the trophy. The Academy also had to begin reevaluating its campaign rules following Andrea Riseborough’s surprise “To Leslie” nomination. Ana de Armas (“Blonde”) and Michelle Williams (“The Fabelmans”) also round out the buzzy category.

Kerry Condon (“Banshees of Inisherin”) and Angela Bassett (“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”) lead the Best Supporting Actress race, as Ke Huy Quan (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”) seems to cinch the Best Supporting Actor category. Austin Butler (“Elvis”) and Brendan Fraser (“The Whale”) also lead the tight Best Actor race.

Steven Spielberg (“The Fabelmans”) may take home the statue for Best Directing of his semi-autobiographical coming-of-age epic, or will Daniels prevail with “Everything Everywhere All at Once”? The 2023 Oscars may have one of the toughest ballots in recent years, with plenty of surprises expected during the live show.
