The 2023 Oscars, undoubtedly the biggest entertainment event, will telecast on Sunday, March 12, bringing the award season to an end. Viewers have a lot to look forward to this year, from Rihanna’s musical performance and Jimmy Kimmel’s return to hosting to Michelle Yeoh and Cate Blanchett competing for best actress. After the slap incident, the Oscars had a crisis team assembled in the aftermath of the incident.

The Oscars will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 12 (Monday, March 13, 6.30 am). Live coverage of the event will be available on the official website of ABC and the ABC app.
