And the Winner Is: Ways to Watch the Oscars on OTA & Our Office Picks!
It’s that time of year again when the coveted gold statues will soon be handed out to Hollywood’s best during the Academy Awards (aka the Oscars). You won’t want to miss this must-see television event!
The 91st Academy Awards will be broadcast live on Sunday, February 24 at 8:00p.m. EST on ABC. If you are a fashionista, you may want to tune in early to the Red Carpet soiree starting at 5:30p.m. EST.
This year’s ceremony will honor some of 2018’s best actors/actresses, directors and films including Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Favourite, Green Book, Roma, A Star is Born and Vice. It will also be the first time in 30 years the Oscars will be held without an official host.
