Oscars Ceremony 2022 Live: The Oscars are here. After years of dipping ratings, the 2022 Oscars are hoping to kickstart momentum for the awards ceremony again. But already the event is mired in controversy: West Side Story star Rachel Zegler wasn’t even invited to the proceedings (that was quickly rectified, surprising no one).
Get ready. It’s nearly time to watch the Oscars 2022 live stream. This year the Oscars has a trio of first-time hosts — Amy Schumer, Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes. And Hollywood is back in the building for an awards show that will be more “normal” than the last couple of years.
OSCARS 2022 DATE, START TIME
The Oscars 2022 ceremony airs today Sunday (March 27) at 8 p.m. EDT / 5 p.m. PDT on ABC.
E! Live from the Red Carpet begins at 5 p.m. EDT on E!.
For proof, check out the giant list of announced presenters below. There are also plenty of great Oscar-nominated movies you can watch to get ready, including Coda, Drive My Car and Nightmare Alley.
This is a huge year for the big streaming services, as Netflix’s The Power of The Dog leads the pack with 12 nominations. Right behind it is Dune, which debuted on HBO Max (and is back there now) has 10 nominations. Apple TV Plus’ CODA has three nods, and Netflix’s Done Look Up has five.
That said, the return to the theater is seen in full force here, as the people behind theatrical exclusives Licorice Pizza and Belfast are also looking to nab statuettes.
How to watch Oscars live stream from anywhere on Earth
Just because ABC isn’t available everywhere doesn’t mean you can’t watch the Oscars live stream if you’re away from home. Watching along with the rest of the internet can be pretty easy. With the right VPN (virtual private network), you can stream the show from wherever you go.
Not sure which VPN is right for you? We’ve tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service.
How to watch the Oscars live stream in the US
The Oscars broadcast on Sunday (March 27) at 8 p.m. EDT / 5 p.m. PDT on ABC. The E!’s Brunch at the Oscars pre-show starts at 2 p.m. EDT / 11 a.m. PDT and the E! Live from the Red Carpet pre-show follows at 5 p.m. EDT / 2 p.m. PDT.
ABC is a broadcast network that can be accessed with one of the best TV antennas or through a cable TV package. If you left cable in 2021? The best cable TV alternatives have you covered, and include DVR if you want to save these moments.
If you’ve already cut the cord and don’t have cable, you can watch ABC on a live TV service, like FuboTV, Hulu With Live TV, YouTube TV and DirecTV Stream.
Of these options, we recommend FuboTV, one of the best streaming services on the market (which is also available on most of the best streaming devices). Its affordable Starter Plan comes with over 120 channels, including all the broadcast networks.
Unfortunately, the Oscars are not being live streamed on Disney Plus, which we think is a huge missed opportunity.
