The 2017 Oscars are all set to be given out this coming Sunday, February 26th. We did provide a list of nominees as well as the categories, and here are further details on how you would be able to catch the Oscar 2017 live stream -- as long as you have a compatible device with a decent Internet connection, of course. Jimmy Kimmel will play host for the 2017 Oscars, as it will be aired live on ABC this coming Sunday. This would mark Jimmy Kimmel’s very first time in the shoes of an Oscar host. He would have had some practice after hosting the Emmy Awards in September last year.
2017 Oscar Schedule On ABC, E!
ABC will air the 89th Academy Awards this Sunday, February 26th, at 8 p.m. EST (11 p.m. PST). Of course, rather than dive into the acceptance speeches right away, why not prepare the popcorn or any of your favorite TV show snack, have some drinks on the side, and check out the red carpet special from ABC that will air one hour before the 2017 Oscars kick off? Treat it as an appetizer, as well as getting a refresher on who’s who in addition to the movies that have been nominated in their respective categories.
E! Intends to get the proverbial early worm by starting their broadcast, “Countdown to the Red Carpet” at 1:30 p.m. EST (4.30 p.m. PST). Countdown to the Red Carpet will basically comprise of banter on Oscar trends of the past, not to mention touch on one particular topic that will surely have the fashionistas buzzing -- who’s wearing what, and will there be any kind of surprises this time around, not to mention questions of possible wardrobe malfunctions.
Apart from that, E!'s Live From the Red Carpet will follow once Countdown to the Red Carpet is over. Live From the Red Carpet will begin at 5:30 p.m. EST (8.30 p.m. PST) with Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic playing the role of hosts.
Watch the 2017 Oscars Live Stream
If you prefer to take the route less traveled, which would be to watch from a device that is not a TV, then going online is the obvious choice. The 2017 Oscars will be made available via a live stream, thanks to ABC Go in addition to the ABC app. Do bear in mind that the 2017 Oscars live stream is available only if you happen to have a login from a cable service provider.
The ABC website itself provides another lifeline if you do not have a cable service provider login ID. Via the ABC website, there is a separate livestream that is known as The Oscars: All Access. The Oscars: All Access will showcase backstage interviews with nominees as well as presenters, as opposed to the main show stream itself. Granted, it will still be live, but you get to check out the banter and perhaps a gem of a moment during those unguarded times where Hollywood starlets let their guard down.
