Here are different ways you can watch the 2023 Oscars online live stream or on TV. Rihanna and Lenny Kravitz will perform at the Oscars as Jimmy Kimmel hosts the Annual Academy Awards for the third time.
After months of anticipation, The Oscars 2023 are nearly here. The 95th Annual Academy awards will return to ABC on Sunday (March 12th) to celebrate Hollywood’s finest cinematic achievements of 2022.

The indie darling hit ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ leads all films with 11 nominations, followed by The Banshees of Inisherin and German film ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ with nine nominations apiece.
Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hands” is nominated for the best original song alongside Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up,” “Applause” by Diane Warren, “Naatu Naatu” by M.M. Keeravani and Chandrabose and “This is a Life” by Ryan Lott, David Byrne, and Mitski.
Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the Oscars for the third time. He had previously hosted the 2017 and 2018 Oscars, the former of which had the comical “La La Land” and “Moonlight” best picture screw-up. In 2018, he gave a killer monologue. The 2022 Oscars were hosted by the trio of Wanda Sykes, Regina Hall, and Amy Schumer although the event was memorable, thanks to the infamous Will Smith-Chris Rock altercation. Will Smith was hit with a 10-year ban from all events hosted by the Academy. This year’s event will have tighter security.
Lots to watch out for! The star-studded event is one not to miss out on.

Who will Perform at the 2023 Oscars?
Rihanna, who scored her first-ever Oscar nomination for her song “Lift Me Up” from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack, will light the stage. The heart-throb Lenny Kravitz will also be performing at this year’s event.
Other performers include Indian vocalists Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava, who will perform the banger hit “Naatu Naatu” from the Telugu-language movie RRR. Sofia Carson and Diane Warren will perform Warren’s tune “Applause” from Tell It Like a Woman.
If Rihanna’s Superbowl performance is anything to go by, this year’s Oscars will surely be an electric affair.
