East Coasters may actually be able to stay awake for Best Picture this year — the 90th Oscars will begin a half-hour earlier than usual, starting at 8 p.m. out by the Atlantic Ocean instead of 8:30.
That means the official 90-minute Oscars Pre-Show will begin at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT.
As previously announced, Jimmy Kimmel will return to host the 2018 best-in-film awards; Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd are back to produce.
The 2018 Academy Awards will be held on Sunday, March 4 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. They’ll again be televised on ABC.
And with any luck, the producers will have straightened out the backstage envelope situation this time around.
