The best films of 2023 will be honored at the 2024 Oscars. Also known as the 96th Academy Awards, the 2024 Oscars will feature some of the biggest and brightest stars Hollywood has to offer, including Margot Robbie, Robert Downey Jr., Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, Lily Gladstone, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, and more. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will award Oscars in 23 categories, with the top prize being Best Picture. Jimmy Kimmel returns to host for the fourth time.

Oppenheimer leads the field with 13 nominations, followed by Poor Things with 11, Killers of the Flower Moon with 10, and Barbie with eight. Can Oppenheimer complete its dominant awards season run with a Best Picture prize, or can The Zone of Interest or Poor Things pull off the improbable upset?

What channel is the Oscars on?

The 2024 Oscars will air on ABC starting at a new time of 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Sunday, March 10. This is a significant change from the regular 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT start time. However, ABC has decided to start the Oscars at 7 p.m. ET so it can air a new episode of Abbott Elementary upon the ceremony’s completion at 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. PT. This strategy is similar to how the network airing the Super Bowl airs an episode of television following the Big Game.

Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks live stream: how to watch the NBA online

Jalen Brunson dribbles the ball for the New York Knicks.

The second half of the NBA season is underway. The rivalry between Boston and New York heats up on Saturday night when the Celtics take on the Knicks inside Madison Square Garden. The Celtics and Knicks are two of the four best teams in the Eastern Conference, meaning this game could be a potential playoff preview.

The Celtics are the best team in the East by a wide margin, seven games to be exact. With a record of 44-12, the Celtics can run the table, reach 60 wins, and secure the No. 1 seed in the postseason. The Knicks, who are fourth with a 34-22 record, are trying to string together a few wins while waiting for three of their best players – Mitchell Robinson, OG Anunoby, and Julius Randle – to return from injury sometime next month.

How to watch WWE Elimination Chamber: Perth 2024 live stream

The logo for WWE Elimination Chamber: Perth 2024.

Before heading to Philadelphia for WrestleMania 40, the WWE is heading to the Land Down Under for Elimination Chamber: Perth. Raw and SmackDown superstars will be in Perth for the 14th Elimination Chamber event. It’s also the third consecutive Elimination Chamber outside of the U.S. — the previous two were held in Saudi Arabia and Canada.

The main events will be the men’s and women’s Elimination Chamber matches. Think of an Elimination Chamber like a steel cage match combined with Hell in a Cell. Six superstars are locked inside the chain-linked steel structure. Two superstars start inside the ring, while four participants are locked in pods against the chamber’s fence. One competitor is released from their pod every few minutes until all six are in the ring. There is no disqualification or count-outs. The only way to eliminate a competitor is by pinfall or elimination. The last person standing wins and receives a championship opportunity at WrestleMania.
