The Oscars returns on Sunday night with the 93rd Academy Awards and we've been promised it's not going to be a 'Zoom-fest' this year.

The Oscars is set to take place simultaneously in several locations across the world, so that celebrities who can't fly to LA can still be a part of the glamorous event.

The Oscars usually takes place in February, but due to the pandemic, it was pushed back to April this year.

With celebrities not video-calling from home this year, viewers are sure to see some Hollywood glamour return to their TV screens.

Here's everything you need to know if you're watching in the UK.

When are the Oscars 2021?


The Oscars 93rd Academy Awards take place on Sunday, 25th April 2021 in the U.S. Due to the time difference, the Oscars will start streaming to UK viewers at 1am on Monday morning.

The Oscars takes place across several locations this year, including the usual Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. There will also be venues in London and Paris for celebs who can't fly to Los Angeles due to travel bans.

The Oscars full event will air on Sky Cinema Oscars from 1am, followed by a highlights reel on Sky One.

The Sky coverage will also be streamed online through Now.

Existing Sky TV customers can sign up to Sky Cinema for £11 a month, or you can pay £11.99 a month for Now's Sky Cinema Pass.

Although there's a handy loophole if you're only interested in watching the Oscars - you can get a seven-day free trial.

Who's hosting the Oscars 2021?

Over the last two years, the Oscars has been hosted by different stars, each covering a different category. The same will happen again this year.

"There's so much wattage here, sunglasses may be required," the show's producers said as they announced their star presenters for this year.

Some of last years' winners, such as Joaquin Phoenix, Brad Pitt, Laura Dern, Renee Zellweger and Bong Joon Ho, are among the stars set to host this year's Oscars.
