2023 Oscars live: Where to stream 95th Academy Awards in India, when to watch on Hotstar, time, what to expect & more

With the 2023 Oscars voting concluded, Anticipation to witness the 95th Academy Awards has amplified among moviegoers. Since the ceremony is all set to be telecasted live worldwide, here’s a breakdown of where Indians could stream the 2023 Oscars in India and what to expect from the prestigious event.

While it’s been a tough week for Hotstar due to its announcement on the removal of HBO content, the Disney Plus service in India has still managed to bag a crowd-puller event as the Oscars live telecast. The 3-hour-plus ceremony taking place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and who is prepared to handle another Oscars slap incident if it were to occur.

Folks tuning in from the US will experience it on Sunday, March 12, 2023, at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC and can stream through Hulu Live TV. AT&T TV, FuboTV and Youtube TV. Readers need not worry since these services also offer free trial options too.

Where to stream the 2023 Oscars live in India?

The Oscars ceremony will be available to stream via Disney Plus Hotstar throughout India. But unlike the US, the ceremony will be telecasted on 13 March, Monday at 5:30 AM IST.

Most Indians would be more inclined towards watching the Oscars mainly for the Music (original song) category due to RRR‘s nomination for Naatu Naatu song. Composer MM Keeravaani will not only be a nominee at the event but is also set to conduct the Naatu Naatu song with a dance performance by LA artists.

Those interested in watching the Oscars red carpet and the pre-ceremony interviews can catch the live broadcast by E! at 5 pm ET. In addition, a live feed of the 95th Oscars will be shown in American Sign Language via Youtube.

The Academy Award will be breaking a long-held tradition for the 95th edition due to the infamous Will Smith slap incident. The Best Actress award category is usually presented by the preceding year’s Best Actor winner. Since Smith won the 2022 Oscar for his performance in King Richard – the 54-year-old star would have had that privilege but following the violent incident – Will Smith was slapped with a 10-year ban from attending the Oscars.

It remains to be seen who would present the Best Actress award for 2023 Oscars. Some industry experts suggest 2022’s Oscar nominees for Best Actor could be considered. Nonetheless, the truth will be revealed when the 95th Academy Awards is shown live on Disney Plus Hotstar in India and on ABC in the US.
