What time does the 2023 Academy Awards start?

What time does the 2023 Academy Awards start?

Time is ticking down, down, and down to the 95th annual Oscar Awards.

If you're wanting to count down the seconds, minutes, or hours to Hollywood's night of nights, we've got you, boo.

The 95th Academy Awards kicks off at 5:30am AEDST on Monday, March 13 for Aussies.


Well, that's when the red carpet begins, anyway.

If you couldn't care less about who is wearing what frock or who is 'hot' or 'not', the real action kicks off at 11am AEDT when the gala of an Oscars ceremony begins.

So, pop it in your diaries, set your alarms, and get as excited, because the 95th Academy Awards is coming in hot.

And double good news for those Down Under: you can catch the entire thing on Channel 7.

That's right, from the red carpet to the final award, it'll all be screened on 7 and 7plus.

Or, if you're just in it for the red carpet magic, from 8.00am to 11.00am AEST E!'s red carpet coverage will be shown on the brand-spanking new channel, 7Bravo.

Now that really puts the 'yee' in 'yee haw', if you ask us.

Or, if you want to catch up on the big night but don't have time, 7 will show an encore of the Academy Awards after Australian Idol’s live verdict show at 7.30pm on Monday on both 7 and 7plus.

Now that is good news.

And no, we aren't talking about Australian Idol being back on the telly.
