The 91st Academy Awards are set to air live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles Sunday. Here’s what to know.


Tune into ABC at 8 p.m. ET to watch the show live. Red carpet coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. Cable-cutters can live stream or watch on demand through ABC’s website or app.


This year’s ceremony will be host-free. Kevin Hart was set to do the honors, but stepped down after decades-old homophobic tweets were resurfaced.

No replacement host was named; this will be the first ceremony without a host in 30 years.

Instead, there will be a star-studded cast of presenters, including Chris Evans, Tina Fey, Awkwafina, Chadwick Boseman, Daniel Craig, Whoopi Goldberg, Brie Larson, Jennifer Lopez, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Amandla Stenberg, Charlize Theron, Tessa Thompson and Constance Wu.


This year’s most nominated films are Roma and The Favourite, with 10 each. A Star Is Born and Vice garnered 8. Black Panther snagged 7.

Each of those five was nominated for Best Picture, along with Green Book, Bohemian Rhapsody and BlacKkKlansman.
