Here’s everything you need to know about Sunday night’s Academy Awards and how you an watch the Oscars online and a variety of other mediums.
The biggest night in movies is tonight as the 89th Academy Awards will air live on ABC. This is the night the biggest names in cinema come together for the biggest night for Hollywood elite and hand out some Oscars.
There will be plenty to watch for tonight, including whether Amazon Studios’ Manchester by the Sea can win any of the six Oscar nominations it received. The movie made history by becoming the first movie from a streaming service to garner a nomination for Best Picture. It also netted Casey Affleck a Golden Globe earlier this year.
Outside of Manchester by the Sea, which is what we will be closely watching and rooting for from an Amazon perspective, there is a ton of engaging storylines. It will be interesting to see how many Oscars the modern musical La La Land can walk away with. The movie starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling received an astonishing 14 Oscar nominations. After cleaning up at the Golden Globes, the big winner of the night could be the people from La La Land.
But we also can’t count out the underdogs like Hacksaw Ridge, Moonlight and Hidden Figures. If you haven’t seen either of those three movies yet, you should as soon as possible. Hacksaw Ridge is currently on Amazon Video and DVD, Moonlight will be out on DVD and Blu-ray on Feb. 28 and Hidden Figures will soon be after that.
Considering the significance of the Oscars, we want to make sure everyone who wants to watch, will be able to watch, so here’s what you need to know. If you have Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, PS4 Vue, or a mobile device like an Amazon Fire tablet or an iPhone, you can still watch even if you don’t have a TV or can’t get in front of the screen.
All you need to do is make sure you have the ABC Go app. Further, you can go directly to the source and watch on the Oscars website that streams the red carpet and the entire awards presentation. Below you can find the live stream information so you don’t miss one second of the action from the 89th Academy Awards.
