What channel is the 2023 Oscars on? How to watch 95th Academy Awards

The films released in 2022 will be honored for one final time at the 2023 Oscars. This marks the 95th ceremony in the history of the Academy Awards. Feel-good storylines dominated Hollywood in 2022. Will Everything Everywhere All at Once (EEAAO) cap off its dominant awards season with a Best Picture win? Can Brendan Fraser (The Whale) and Michelle Yeoh (EEAAO) complete their magical runs with wins in the best acting categories? Will Tom Cruise (Top Gun: Maverick), the last major movie star, finally add an Oscar to his illustrious resume?

If last year’s ceremony taught us anything, expect the unexpected. No one could have ever predicted that Will Smith (King Richard) would walk up to Chris Rock (Selective Outrage) and slap him on national television. CODA, a small film that debuted at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, became Hollywood’s feel-good story of the year by winning Best Picture.

What’s in store for the 2023 Oscars? The only way to find out is to watch!
