The 93rd Academy Awards is set to take place tonight, but with the US still in the grips of the coronavirus pandemic, the glitzy ceremony will be a very different occasion again this year. Did the extra time at home give you a chance to watch any of the films that have been nominated for awards this year? Watch Oscars LIVE!!
Delayed by two months, the Oscars have had plenty of time to learn from the mistakes of the Golden Globes, where Zoom glitches and technical mishaps overshadowed the evening.
2021 Oscars ceremony date and time
The ceremony for the 93rd Academy Awards takes place on April 25 in the US, airing live on US TV station ABC at 8pm Eastern Daylight Time (midnight on April 26 UK time). The spring celebration is a marked delay from its usual date in February.
Host of the 2021 Oscars?
The Oscars haven’t had a host for the past two years; the last host was Jimmy Kimmel in 2018. This year will be hosted by an “ensemble” of presenters, including some of last year’s winners, such as Joaquin Phoenix, Brad Pitt, Laura Dern, Renée Zellweger and Bong Joon Ho.
The producers have promised “guides” to take the audience through this movie-styled ceremony, along with pre-recorded interviews. “Movie storytelling is so unique,” explained Soderbergh. “We have the resources, through the stories the nominees are telling us, to tease out the detail of what makes movies so special, why we connect to them so strongly all over the world.”
Who will present the 93rd Annual Awards?
The starry presenting line-up includes Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, Bong Joon-Ho, Don Cheadle, Bryan Cranston, Laura Dern, Harrison Ford, Regina King, Marlee Matlin, Rita Moreno, Joaquin Phoenix, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Renée Zellweger, and Zendaya.

The Oscars will have no hosts for the third straight year, but will be in person this year. Last year’s ceremony was in February, which meant it too was held in person. This year’s ceremony was pushed back from February 28 to April 25 due to COVID-19. This resulted in extending the eligibility period for feature films to the 28th.
