Oscars 2015 FAQ: Watch Show & Red Carpet on TV & Online!

Where can I watch the Oscars?

The 87th Academy Awards air Sunday, Feb. 22, at 8:30 p.m. on ABC.

As for online, most cable TV subscribers in eight lucky markets (Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham and San Francisco) can access a livestream of the show on the Watch ABC app. If you want to keep track of backstage shenanigans, ABC is streaming views from cameras all around the ceremony at the network’s Facebook page.

What time will the show be over?

You know the drill: 11:30 p.m. — allegedly — though expect it to go at least a few minutes over.

Who’s the host?

Neil Patrick Harris, because he hosts everything, and proved he’s quite good at it.

Who’s going to win?

Our film critics took their best guesses here. “Birdman” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” are tied with nine nominations each, while “The Imitation Game” is close behind with eight. Still, many consider “Birdman” and “Boyhood” to be the frontrunners for best picture.

Who’s performing? 

So many people for all five best song nominees. Common and John Legend team up for “Glory” (“Selma”); Tegan and Sara join Andy Samberg’s Lonely Island for “Everything Is Awesome” (“The Lego Movie”); Rita Ora takes on “Grateful” (“Beyond the Lights”); Tim McGraw subs in on “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” (“Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me”); Maroon 5′s Adam Levine reprises “Lost Stars” (“Begin Again”). Producers are also teasing “surprise” performances from Anna Kendrick, Jennifer Hudson and Lady Gaga.

Where can I see all the fashion and the awkward celebrity interviews?

So many options!

“Live from the Red Carpet: The 2015 Academy Awards” (E!, 5:30 to 8:30): Ryan Seacrest is stationed on the red carpet to interview stars, with Giuliana Rancic inside the Roosevelt Hotel. Ross Mathews and Kelly Osbourne analyze fashion while E! star Khloe Kardashian shares her thoughts. You can also catch their coverage on the E! web site or mobile app, along with a pre-show at 1:30 p.m.

“Oscars Opening Ceremony: Live from the Red Carpet” (ABC, 7 to 8:30): “Good Morning America’s’ Robin Roberts and Lara Spencer host, along with “Live! With Kelly and Michael’s” Michael Strahan. Note: ABC usually gets exclusive red carpet rights at 8, so make sure to switch over.

“ET at the Oscars: Live on Pop!” (Pop, 5 to 7:30): The former TV Guide Network sends “Entertainment Tonight” co-hosts Kevin Frazier and Nancy O’Dell to the carpet.

“Live from the Oscars” (CW at 6 to 7:30): Once again, the good people at the CW air KTLA’s red carpet coverage, hosted by Sam Rubin and Jessica Holmes — the Los Angeles ABC station brings its own brand of wackiness to the proceedings.

What about the after-shows?

Yes, the annual “Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars” airs after the late local news on Sunday. This year features something called “The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting” and has guest stars including John Travolta, Neil Patrick Harris, Susan Sarandon, Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, Lupita Nyong’o, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Gary Oldman, Jeff Bridges, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and (of course) Matt Damon.

Meanwhile, the “E! After Party” at 11:30 p.m. has dispatches from the Vanity Fair party and Governor’s Ball.

When can I judge the fashion?

All day, every day, but everyone else (Kathy Griffin, Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski) joins in with E!’s “Fashion Police” on Monday night at 9 p.m.
