Here's How You Can Watch The 2021 Oscars

The 93rd Annual Academy Awards are upon us, with this year's nominees being the most diverse in its long history. 

The Oscars will close out award season with a ceremony unlike any other in the past, due to — of course — the COVID-19 pandemic. The show will be directed by Steven Soderbergh, a former Best Director winner, and will take place across different venues. He previously mentioned how this year's ceremony will be different when catching up with Vanity Fair. "The most exciting thing about this show is that it is going to feel like a film, in the sense that, at the end, we hope it'll feel like you watched a movie," he noted. 

For safety precautions, those in attendance will only be nominees, their guests, and presenters. Some of these presenters include Renee Zellweger, Joaquin Phoenix, Laura Dern, and Brad Pitt, as well as Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, Bong Joon Ho, Don Cheadle, Bryan Cranston, Harrison Ford, Regina King, Marlee Matlin, Rita Moreno, Reese Witherspoon, and Zendaya.

The Oscars will air on April 25, 2021

The 93rd Oscars will debut on ABC this Sunday, April 25 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT, per the Wall Street Journal. Those wishing to watch the ceremony can head over to the network and watch through their cable provider, or by using the ABC app and by entering their provider information to watch online. Streamers can also tune into the ceremony through either their YouTube TV or Hulu+ Live TV subscriptions, both of which will begin at 8 p.m. ET as well.

Tune in to see who takes home the night's biggest honor, Best Picture. The Father, Judas and the Black Messiah, Mank, Minari, Nomadland, Promising Young Woman, Sound of Metal, and The Trial of the Chicago 7 are the night's big nominees, with Nomadland being the favorite to win according to Gold Derby. Best Director nominees include Chloé Zhao (Nomadland), Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman), David Fincher (Mank), and Thomas Vinterberg (Another Round). This marks the first time in Oscars history that two women have been nominated in the Best Director Category. 

All remaining nominees for the evening can be found on the official website of the 93rd Oscars.
