The time has finally come for the Academy Awards, which will take place Sunday, March 4, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET and will be hosted by comedian Jimmy Kimmel.
From Frances McDormand in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri to Margot Robbie in I, Tonya; Daniel Day-Lewis in Phantom Thread to Gary Oldman in Darkest Hour—who will take home the biggest Oscars? Will 22-year-old Timothée Chalamet be the youngest Best Actor in history? Will there be another envelope mishap? Will an alleged abuser take home a coveted statuette for the second time in a row?
Perhaps the most pressing issue—outside of Florida Project star Brooklynn Prince’s snub—is how the awards will handle the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements. Last year’s Best Actor winner and accused sexual abuser Casey Affleck will not be in attendance to present an award, although Ryan Seacrest, who is also accused of sexual abuse, is still slated to host E!’s red-carpet coverage.
But if last year’s awards are any indicator, we could be in for some mighty surprises and upsets.
You won’t want to miss the drama, so here’s how to tune in.
