Where to watch the 2023 Oscars (legally!) in Ireland
If you're anything like us, you'll be up late watching the Oscars live on the night.
The 95th Academy Awards are due to take place in Los Angeles on Sunday, 12 March, and is pretty much the World Cup Final / Super Bowl / Eurovision / [insert big event here] for movie fans. It will be especially important for Ireland fans this year, thanks to the massively strong showing of Irish talent to be found all across the nominations.
Locally, the Oscars will take place from 12am to about 3am on Monday, 13 March, and if you're planning on staying up late that night and watching the awards live (legally, as you should!), then you'll be happy to know that you can!
Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, this year's ceremony will be available to watch on both Sky Cinema and Sky Showcase on the night, and will also be available to watch with a NOW Cinema or NOW Entertainment Membership.
If you're looking to catch up on all of this year's Best Picture nominees, Omniplex Cinemas are showing all 10 movies in their branches all across Ireland in the lead-up to the big night. Full details of those showings can be found right here.
Additionally, some of the nominees are available to watch at home, including The Banshees of Inisherin (on Disney+), Everything Everywhere All At Once (on Prime Video), All Quiet On The Western Front (on Netflix), Top Gun Maverick and Elvis (on Paramount+ and Sky/NOW), while Tár and Triangle Of Sadness are all available to rent or buy on PVOD platforms. The remaining Best Picture nominees - Avatar: The Way of Water, The Fabelmans and Women Talking - are still in cinemas at the time of writing.
