The Academy is preparing to celebrate the 95th Oscars this weekend, with the ceremony set to take place on Sunday, 12 March at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

A plethora of the year’s biggest acting and directing nominees will come together to celebrate the past 12 months of the best movies, with Everything Everywhere All at Once and The Banshees of Inisherin tipped to rake in trophies.

The event will include performances for several of this year’s best original song nominees, including Rihanna singing “Lift Me Up”; and David Byrne, Son Lux, and Stephanie Hsu performing “This Is a Life”.

Comedian and late-night host Jimmy Kimmel returns as host. He helmed the ceremony in 2017 and 2018, and joins a club of presenters who have hosted three times, including Jerry Lewis, Steve Martin, Conrad Nagel, and David Niven.

The ceremony will be aired live in more than 200 countries worldwide. However, there will be time differences to take into consideration.
