Oscars 2023 predictions | How to watch the Oscars in the UK?

The 95th Academy Awards are on Sunday (March 12). Here are our Oscars 2023 predictions in all 23 categories.

The 95th Academy Awards are upon us and on Sunday (March 12) we find out which creatives will walk away with that desired golden Oscar. Here are our Oscars 2023 predictions. 


It still seems wild that the current Best Picture frontrunner is a weird, little sci-fi film that includes the concept of hot dog fingers. It’s been a wonderful year for cinema and it’s a shame there are some very deserving names missing from the nominations (Viola Davis, Charlotte Wells, Danielle Deadwyler to name a few), but Sunday’s Oscars will without a doubt be a glamorous, thrilling culmination of the awards season. 

How do I watch the Oscars live in the UK?

The Oscars are broadcast live on TV in the UK. The red carpet coverage starts at 11pm on Sky Showcase and the ceremony itself will commence at 12am. Sky Cinema Oscars will also show the ceremony, this is available for NOW subscribers as well.

The ceremony varies in length but 4 hours is allotted to the broadcast. Expect this to run a little over though.
