Where to watch the 2024 People’s Choice Awards

For nearly five decades, the People’s Choice Awards has allowed fans to pick their favorites from the worlds of television, movies, music, and even sports.

This year’s ceremony is arriving in the middle of the awards season, and it’s the first time since 1978 that the People’s Choice Awards has been held in February. Although we won’t know the winners until they’re announced on Sunday, February 18, we can tell you where you can watch this year’s event.

Oscars live stream: Watch the 96th Academy Awards for free

The best films of 2023 will be honored at the 2024 Oscars. Also known as the 96th Academy Awards, the 2024 Oscars will feature some of the biggest and brightest stars Hollywood has to offer, including Margot Robbie, Robert Downey Jr., Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, Lily Gladstone, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, and more. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will award Oscars in 23 categories, with the top prize being Best Picture. Jimmy Kimmel returns to host for the fourth time.

Oppenheimer leads the field with 13 nominations, followed by Poor Things with 11, Killers of the Flower Moon with 10, and Barbie with eight. Can Oppenheimer complete its dominant awards season run with a Best Picture prize, or can The Zone of Interest or Poor Things pull off the improbable upset?
What channel is the Oscars on?
The 2024 Oscars will air on ABC starting at a new time of 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Sunday, March 10. This is a significant change from the regular 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT start time. However, ABC has decided to start the Oscars at 7 p.m. ET so it can air a new episode of Abbott Elementary upon the ceremony's completion at 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. PT. This strategy is similar to how the network airing the Super Bowl airs an episode of television following the Big Game.

Oscars 2024: Who is performing at the Academy Awards?
Ryan Gosling performs I'm Just a Ken in Barbie.

It's become a time-honored tradition at the Academy Awards for the tunes nominated for Best Original Song to be performed onstage at the Oscars, often by the very artists who provided their vocals for the film in question. The 96th annual Academy Awards will be no exception, and one of the most anticipated parts of this year's show will be the live performances.

While we can't predict the exact times that the songs will be performed, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the full lineup of artists who will take the stage this Sunday, March 10, at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California.

10 best Oscar-winning movies ever, ranked (and where to watch them)
Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven.

This weekend, the 96th Academy Awards will name a new winner for Best Picture. And while we suspect that Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer will walk away with the top prize, there's always room for an upset. The truth is that there are plenty of great movies that didn't win Best Picture, including Citizen Kane, which is widely regarded as one of the greatest films ever made.

We've recently shared our list of the worst movies to win Best Picture, so now it's time to reveal our picks for the 10 best Oscar-winning movies of all time. There may be some disagreement with the order in which we placed these films, but few could convincingly argue that they aren't among the greatest movies ever made.
