Long and late night ahead – The Oscars 2017 Consort News February 26, 2017 Actors, Events, Featured News, Film and TV If you are in the UK and you are planning to watch the Oscars, you have a long and late night ahead. Once again, the Oscars are here and we are ready to celebrate the film industry and its achievements this year. This is the 89th Academy Awards ceremony and the red carpet is already buzzing with reporters and cameramen ready to give us all the latest news from the celebration. The red carpet actions kicks off at 4pm LA time which means the celebrities will hit the spotlight right at midnight in the UK. All the stars will be gathered at the Dolby Theater at the Hollywood and Highland Centre in Los Angeles and the ceremony is scheduled to begin at 5.30pm LA time (1.30am for us here in the UK). This year the American television host, producer, comedian, writer and voice actor Jimmy Kimmel will be the M.C of the Oscars for the first time, after Ellen Degeneres nailed the show last year with her memorable celebrity selfie. Jimmy Kimmel is no stranger to major award shows as has presented the Emmys and the American Music Awards before and in an interview for New York Times he joked about it being such a easy job since there is no political pressure at the moment.

We should also look out for the Brits at the Oscars: Dev Patel is nominated for Best Supporting Actor, Naomie Harris is running for Best Supporting Actress and Andrew Garfield which is half-British was nominated for Best Actor. On another note, we should definitely keep an eye on Damien Chazelle’s La La Land as it is very likely to take home quite a few awards tonight. Now that you know all the important details, get some popcorn because you are ready to sit down and enjoy what is expected to be yet another memorable night. Sky Cinema will be showing the Ceremony live in the UK starting at 11.30. And for the people without a Sky subscription keep an eye for streaming links on Twitter and Reddit.
