How to Watch Oscars Online 2018
Fox Searchlight Pictures/Universal Pictures/A24
Though the odds of them screwing up the Best Picture announcement two years in a row are extremely slim, there are still a lot of reasons to watch the 2018 Oscars. Most importantly, the 90th Academy Awards come at a pivotal time in the entertainment industry, when the #MeToo movement has rippled well beyond just film and television.
This will be a night that must deliver some powerful speeches, where the most powerful people in Hollywood can directly confront the shadows in the industry.
Beyond that, the list of nominations is mostly right this year—specifically, giving Get Out (which was largely ignored at the Golden Globes) four major nominations: The film was nominated for Best Picture, Jordan Peele for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Daniel Kaluuya for Best Actor. Peele is the first African-American ever nominated for directing, writing, and producing in the same year. After being passed over for Best Director at the Golden Globes, Greta Gerwig received a Best Director nomination for her coming-of-age film Lady Bird, which was also nominated for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actress for Saoirse Ronan, and Best Supporting Actress for Laurie Metcalf.
Along with that, this year has a number of firsts: Meanwhile, Meryl Streep broke her own record with her 21st Oscar nomination, with a Best Actress nod for The Post. Denzel Washington also broke his own record as the most-nominated African-American actor with his eighth Best Actor nomination for Roman J. Israel, Esq. Timothée Chalamet is the third-youngest Best Actor nominee ever, while Christopher Plummer, on the other hand, is the oldest Best Supporting Actor nominee in history. Meanwhile, Rachel Morrison is the first woman nominated for Best Cinematography.
Those are all some very worthwhile reasons to watch history (hopefully) go down at the 2018 Oscars. So, how can you watch the Oscars?
Well, you can do it the OG way of tuning into ABC on March 4 at 6:30 p.m. ET for the red carpet and the ceremony at 8 p.m. ET. It’s also available to stream at http://abc.go.com/watch-live in available markets.
If you’re some sort of cord-cutting millennial, you can also 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.
