The time has finally come. After countless awards shows like the Golden Globes, BAFTAs and SAG Awards, the 2023 Oscars, also known as the 95th Academy Awards, is finally here. Blockbuster movies like Top Gun: Maverick with Tom Cruise and Avatar: The Way of Water will compete with indie films like The Banshees of Inisherin starring Colin Farrell and Everything Everywhere Simultaneously with Michelle Yeoh.
Just like the Super Bowl, the Oscars is a global affair that covers not only the ceremony itself, but pre-show interviews and red carpet fashion, which songs and performers will be on the show, and which hot new ad for the next blockbuster movie or TV show to debut between the awards. There is a lot going on and it can be confusing when everything is on. What time is the Oscars? Is there a live stream of the Oscars that you can watch? Below you will find information about the Oscars 2023.
