Fielding your Academy Awards-related inquiries.

Okay, I know why you're here, so I'm going to get right to it: The Oscars start at 8 p.m. ET on ABC on March 4. Are you happy? You can figure out what that means in your own time zone, I hope. Feel free to leave now, but I also have some other good information for you below. 

What if I'm some sort of cord-cutting millennial?
Alright, you crazy kid: If you don't have cable, you can still watch the Oscars on Hulu, YouTube, Sling TV, DirecTV, and PlayStation Vue in selected markets. I've also heard that certain "social news aggregation" sites have specific pages dedicated to streaming events like this–though I'd never advocate for such things. 

What time does the Oscar red carpet start? 
Oh damn, you're all in on this aren't you? Well if you'd like to watch a bunch of fancy people walk around in fancy clothes, just watch the red carpet starting at 6:30 ET. 

How long are the Oscars? 
TOO LONG. But seriously, folks, they're long as hell. And they will likely last longer than three hours, which will be worth sticking through if they screw up Best Picture again. 

What movies are nominated for Oscars? 
You can find the full list of movies nominated and our predictions here. If they do it right, Get Out will win everything.
