The Academy Awards are all set for Sunday, February 26 and we couldn’t be more excited to tune in. Whether you’re a big movie fan or simply have no life, you’re probably just as excited as we are. Awards season is definitely upon us and the Oscars are the crowning jewel of it all. We love the glitz, the glam and the iconic Hollywood feel that the Oscars always ensure. What better way to occupy our time than watching an award show designated to bringing all of the biggest stars in Hollywood together, each wearing expensive gowns and jewelry?
This year’s show is the most diverse ever, with several notable films sweeping the nominations. It’s extremely heartwarming to watch some lesser-known actors gain some recognition.
Predictions seem to be a bit all over the place this year, so there may not be any accurate speculation before we see who takes home the coveted award. We’re already on the edge of our seats wondering who will win it all.
Since this is only a yearly occurrence, here are the best ways to keep up with all the glamor, which begins February 26 at 8:30 P.M. EST.
