Smart: Oscars Will Air One Hour Earlier Than Usual at 7pm Eastern


Heres some good smart news from the motion picture academy: the Oscars will air one hour earlier than usual next year.

The show, set for March 10th, will begin on ABC at 7pm eastern and end at 10:30. A special episode of Abbott Elementary will follow.

This means the show will begin at 4pm in Hollywood, a little early in the afternoon! The red carpet will start after brunch!

But this is much better for the east coast snd for people getting up early the next day. Bravo!

Jimmy Kimmel is the host again. The show is shaping up nicely!
