Where to stream the Oscars
Whether you are streaming with your cable provider, YouTubeTV or Hulu, the Academy shared ways to watch here.
Who hosted the Oscars?
There was no host this year, the Academy confirmed.
Kevin Hart was initially announced as the show’s host in early December, though he dropped out following online backlash against years-old homophobic tweets. After speculation that he might reconsider, Hart appeared on Good Morning America to say definitively that he would not be hosting and that he is done talking about the controversy.
This was the show’s first time without a host in three decades.
Who were the nominees?
See the full list of nominees here.
Among the notable nominees are Netflix’s art piece Roma, which walked away with 10 nods. This was tied for the most with witty British comedy The Favourite. Black Panther, the most popular film at the box office in 2018, became the first superhero movie to be nominated for Best Picture.
Among the snubs was Bradley Cooper, who did not get nominated for his directorial debut, A Star Is Born, even though he was considered a strong directing contender.
Who performed during the show?
Queen announced that they will perform with Adam Lambert during the show. Also, per tradition, the nominees for Best Original Song will be performed, including Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper singing the chart-topper “Shallow” from A Star Is Born. Other performers include Jennifer Hudson and Bette Middler.
Who else was there?
The Oscars announced the A-list celebrities who presented, including Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Tina Fey.
