Who will win Best Picture? Will Cate Blanchett somehow not win Best Actress? Will “Gravity” director Alfonso Cuaron take home the Best Director Oscar? Or will it be his closest rival, Steve McQueen, of “12 Years a Slave?”

These questions will be answered Sunday on Hollywood’s biggest night -- the 86th Annual Academy Awards, which get underway at 5:30 p.m. local time -- 8:30 p.m. EST -- from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Not going to be near a television to watch the golden statuettes be handed out? No problem, as broadcaster ABC will be live streaming the show online and on smartphones.
