Oscars 2017: What Time, Channel, Live Stream, Who’s Nominated, Presenters and Performers

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in 'La La Land.' The musical has tied an Oscar record with its 14 nominations this year.

It’s that time again, movie fans! The 89th Academy Awards ceremony airs Sunday, February 26, on ABC, with live coverage of red-carpet arrivals beginning at 7pm ET, and the ceremony kicking off at 8:30pm.

After the Oscars ceremony, at approximately 12:05am ET, Anthony Anderson (ABC’s black-ish) will host a live, hourlong Academy Awards after-party on ABC. The next day, Feb. 27, LIVE With Kelly will air its annual LIVE’s After Oscar Show, hosted by Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest, at 9am ET in national syndication.

It should be a big, and potentially historic, Oscars night. The nominations for Oscars 2017 have helped the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences at least take a step in moving away from its infamous #OscarsSoWhite reputation that it has garnered based on past snubs of deserving minority actors and filmmakers. (Last year’s Academy Awards host, Chris Rock, memorably lambasted the Academy on its lack of diversity in his opening remarks.) As some examples of the progress made among this year’s nominees, Viola Davis (Fences), Naomie Harris (Moonlight) and Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures) are up for the award in the Actress in a Supporting Role category; while in the Writing (Adapted Screenplay) category, three African-American screenwriters will compete for this award for the first time ever. Denzel Washington could also take home his third acting Oscar if he wins the Actor in a Leading Role category for Fences. In all, seven minority actors were nominated in the acting categories this year, tying an Academy record.

In another historical note, the crowd-pleasing musical La La Land has been nominated for 14 Oscars (including for two of its songs)—tying Hollywood classics Titanic and All About Eve. Damien Chazelle’s film ran the table with wins in all of its Golden Globe nominations this year, and is a favorite to win most of its Oscars 2017 categories.

The 89th Annual Academy Awards will be held in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 26, and will air on ABC beginning at 8:30/7:30c.

And, given the historic times we are currently living through—and if other awards shows from this year are any indication—we probably can also expect some passionate, politically-tinged acceptance speeches over the course of the evening.

Aside from the history of the night, though, Oscars 2017 also looks to be a lot of fun. Jimmy Kimmel, who recently hosted the Emmys, will host the festivities. The starpower among not just the nominees, but also the presenters, performers and those just taking in the show, will be incredible, as always. Here are some key people and movies to watch for at Oscars 2017:
