TV Guide: The 96th Oscars on Seven and 7plus


The Oscars are live on Monday, 11 March.

Seven are set to showcase Hollywood’s night of nights as the 96th Oscars will be live and free on Channel Seven and 7plus on Monday, 11 March.

The special coverage begins at 5:30 am with an extended edition of Sunrise. Co-hosts Natalie Barr and Matt Shirvington will cross live to Seven’s US correspondent Mylee Hogan on the red carpet at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Following Sunrise, viewers will see all the glitz and glamour of The Oscars Red Carpet Show from 9:30 am AEDT on Channel Seven and streaming live nationally on 7plus.

The Oscars Ceremony is live and exclusive from 10:00 am AEDT on Channel Seven and streaming live nationally on 7plus, with an encore screening at 8:30 pm. 

Jimmy Kimmel is returning as Oscars host for a fourth time, with presenters announced including Mahershala Ali, Nicolas Cage, Jamie Lee Curtis, Brendan Fraser, Jessica Lange, Matthew McConaughey, Lupita Nyong’o, Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ke Huy Quan, Sam Rockwell, Michelle Yeoh and Zendaya.

Jon Batiste, Becky G, Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell, Scott George and the Osage Singers, and Ryan Gosling and Mark Ronson will take the stage to perform this year’s nominated songs.

Australians secured four Oscar nominations this year and while Aussie darling Margot Robbie missed out on a Best Actress nomination for Barbie, she was nominated in the Best Picture category as a producer of Barbie.

Screenwriter Tony McNamara has been nominated for Adapted Screenplay (Writing) for Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things, while producers Nicky Bentham (The After) and Sara McFarlane (Red, White and Blue) are going head-to-head in the Short Film (Live Action) category.

Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer is the favourite to sweep the ceremony, potentially taking home the above-the-line awards for Best Picture, Director, Actor and Supporting Actor. 

While Cillian Murphy is pretty much locked in to win Best Actor, Best Actress is currently a coin flip between Lily Gladstone for her performance in Martin Scorscese’s Killers of the Flower Moon and Emma Stone for her performance in Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things. 

The Oscars are live on Monday, 11 March on Channel 7 and 7plus.
