When are the Oscars 2020 and how can I watch the 92nd Academy Awards in the UK?

THE Oscars are less than a month away with the 2020 nominations list set to be unveiled later this afternoon (January 30).

But when are the 92nd Academy Awards actually taking place and can I watch the ceremony in the UK?

When are the Oscars 2020?

The Oscars award show will take place on the earlier date of Sunday February 9, 2020, after more than a decade of holding the Academy Award ceremonies in late February.

As usual, the glitzy ceremony will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.

The prestigious show has been held at The Dolby Theatre, which was built in 2001, every year since 2013.

This will be the 92nd time that the Oscars, otherwise known as the Academy Awards, will be taking place.

How can I watch the ceremony from the UK?

UK viewers can catch all the action on Sky TV. You can also watch the awards ceremony on NOW TV with a Sky Cinema Pass – sign up for a free trial here.

However, full broadcast details have yet to be announced.

Stars are expected to start arriving on the red carpet at midnight GMT, with the ceremony starting at 1.30am.

In 2019, ABC's Oscars All Access: Red Carpet Live was also streamed live exclusively on Twitter.

TV channel E! also hosted their own coverage of the Oscars red carpet on the E! UK Twitter page.

When will the nominations be announced?

The full list of nominees for the Oscars will be announced today (13 January) at 1.18pm UK time.

We do already have an idea as to who may win a coveted Oscar, as the shortlists for nine of the categories were released towards the end of last year.

Marvel's Avengers: Endgame, the highest-grossing film of all time, has been shortlisted for two awards,

Music (Original Score) and Visual Effects.

Britain's popular drama Downtown Abbey was turned into a successful movie last year and was shortlisted for the Makeup and Hairstyling award.

French film Les Misérables is one of the nominees for Best International Feature Film.

Who is hosting the Oscars 2020?

In 2019, for the first time in three decades the Oscars went ahead without a host after Kevin Hart stepped down following the re-emergence of historic homophobic tweets.

Instead of the traditional opening to the show with a humorous monologue from the host before starting the show proper, the ceremony was instead solely in the hands of guest presenters who came along to deliver each award.

The Academy Awards may decide to present the show in the same format this year, with no host confirmed just a month before the event takes place.

According to Vanity Fair, a decision on who – if anybody – will be hosting the show "has reportedly not yet been reached".

The last person to host the show was Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel in 2018.
