The biggest night in Hollywood is just a few weeks away with the 89th Academy Awards set to air on ABC on Feb. 26. Many of film’s brightest stars will gather at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles to honor the best works of 2016 but before then, the nominations must first be revealed.

Things will be a little different this year as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science will forego an early morning event that featured reporters gathering in the Goldwyn Theater. Instead, the reveal will go straight to digital platforms and a satellite broadcast feed.

The live stream will begin on Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 5:18 a.m. PST on the and websites. The nomination feeds will continue to be available in real time and ABC has the rights to broadcast the reveal.

“In a departure from our tradition of a live audience at the Academy, this year’s nominations will be announced via a global live stream on,, the Academy’s digital platforms, a satellite feed, and local broadcasters, including ‘Good Morning America,’” read a statement from Academy Communications.

Jennifer Hudson, Brie Larson, Emmanuel Lubezki, Jason Reitman and Ken Watanabe will join Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs to reveal the nominees and pre-recorded videos will also be included as well.

As for the show itself, the Oscars will air on Sunday, Feb. 26, on ABC. Taking place live from Los Angeles, the show will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, who confirmed the gig with a tweet. “Yes, I am hosting the Oscars. This is not a prank. And if it is, my revenge on @TheAcademy will be terrible and sweet.”
