The Oscars 2017: What time; what channel; live-streamed; who is the host?

The 2017 Academy Awards – the crowning jewel in Hollywood’s annual self-congratulatory tour of award shows – is set for Sunday.

With nine films up for the Oscar for Best Picture, the favorite seems to be “La La Land,” the homage to Hollywood’s era of love story musicals. The movie is up for 14 Oscars, Best Picture and lead actor and actress nominations included.  

However, the night may likely be remembered more for its political slant then for the awards handed out, if other award shows this year are any indication.

Here are the specifics on the show – the time, channel and where it is being live-streamed.

What time: The show begins at 8:30 p.m. (ET) The red carpet coverage begins at 7 p.m.

Where is it being held: The Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

What channel: ABC will broadcast the show live.

Live-stream: You can watch the awards ceremony on your phone or on other devices by going to abc.com or by using the ABC app.

The host: Jimmy Kimmmel is hosting the ceremony. It’s his first time. “Yes, I am hosting the Oscars. This is not a prank,” the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host tweeted shortly after the news was announced in December. “And if it is, my revenge on @TheAcademy will be terrible& sweet. Thx to @alsformalwear.”

Handing out the awards: Samuel L. Jackson, Kate McKinnon, Amy Adams, Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson and Charlize Theron are among the presenters at Sunday’s ceremony.

Performances: Among the performers set for the show are Sting, John Legend, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Justin Timberlake.
