This year is easier.  When and where to watch the Oscars 2023 broadcast

On the night of March 12-13, the 95th Academy Awards ceremony will take place in Los Angeles. As always, the ceremony will be held in Los Angeles at the Dolby Theater and will begin at 8:00 p.m. local time, and at 3:00 a.m. Kyiv time. The broadcast will start one hour before the start of the presentation itself – at 02:00 Kyiv time. The ceremony of announcing the Oscar winners will be held in the traditional format: with a red carpet and guests in the hall. It will be broadcast by the ABC channel. This year, the presenter of the ceremony will again be the TV host, comedian Jimmy Kimmel. It will be the third time for him. Statuettes will be presented to colleagues by John Travolta, Andy McDowell, Paul Dano, Cara Delevingne, Harrison Ford, Mindy Kaling, Eva Longoria, Pedro Pascal, Halle Berry and others. How to watch the 2023 Oscar ceremony in Ukraine This year, it will be easier for Ukrainians to watch the Oscar broadcast: it will be broadcast by the Suspilne Kultura TV channel from 02:00. Actress Irma Vitovska and executive producer of the channel Lukyan Galkin will comment on the award ceremony. A few hours before the start of the broadcast, at 10:30 p.m., the same channel will show the documentary “House of Chips”, which represents Ukraine at the current Oscars. Also at 00:00, Suspilne Kultura will show the show “One step to the Oscar”, in which Lukyan Galkin, Irma Vitovska and the host of “Television Toronto” Oleksandra Gontar and the author of the YouTube channel “Squad of Cinematographers” Vitaly Gordienko will talk about Ukrainian cinema, which in previous years was nominated by Ukraine for the award.

Over the past year, the speeches of the Ukrainian president could be seen at the ceremonies of various film festivals and awards: the Berlinale, the Golden Globe, the Cannes and Venice film festivals, as well as at the “Grammy” ceremony. Therefore, many hoped to see Zelensky’s address at the most prestigious film award. However, for the second year in a row, it was not possible to agree on the performance of the Ukrainian president at the Oscars. Last year, the American actress Amy Schumer, who was its presenter, suggested involving Zelensky in the 2022 Oscar ceremony. This time, the agent of the WME company Mike Simpson turned to the American Film Academy with a request to include the speech of the President of Ukraine, but he was also refused. Who is nominated for Oscar 2023? This year, the film “Everything Always and At Once” by directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert received the most nominations for the American Film Academy Award – it claims 11 statuettes. The films “Unchanged on the Western Front” and “Inisherin’s Banshee” followed, which received nine nominations each. One of the nominees for the award in the Best Soundtrack category is the song Naatu Naatu from the Indian film RRR. Part of its filming took place in Kyiv, in front of the Mariinsky Palace. Also, a few days before the Oscars, a scandal broke out surrounding the film “Top Gun: Maverick”, which was probably financed by Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev. The World Congress of Ukrainians called on the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to cancel the film’s Oscar nominations and to make a statement condemning the war in Ukraine at the ceremony. Here you can recall all the nominees for the Oscar 2023. Preparations for the Oscars are underway.

It became the second documentary film, shot by Ukrainians and about Ukraine, to be nominated for the world’s main film award. The first was the film “Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Struggle for Freedom” directed by Evgeny Afineevsky. In this film, the Danish director Simon Lereng Vilmont told the story of the Lysychan Center for the Social and Psychological Rehabilitation of Children.
