The biggest night in Hollywood is almost upon us with the 96th Academy Awards taking place on Sunday. The brightest stars of the film industry will touch down in Tinseltown for the prestigious event, which will celebrate the very best in film over the past year – and the competition is tougher than ever.

The Oscars never fails to entertain, often producing jaw-dropping viral moments that sweep the internet overnight - let's not forget the Chris Rock–Will Smith slapping incident in 2022.

But what can film fans expect this year? Here's the ultimate guide to the 2024 Oscars. Keep reading to find out everything there is to know about who's hosting, and how to watch and more.

Who is hosting the 2024 Oscars? 

Jimmy Kimmel is returning to host for the fourth time, having previously fronted the show in 2017, 2018, and 2023. 

Jimmy was back at the helm in 2023 following Will Smith's slapgate during Chris Rock's stint the previous year.

It's no surprise show bosses have gone with Jimmy once again given the late night host's extensive presenting experience and popularity amongst audiences. 

"I always dreamed of hosting the Oscars exactly four times," the comedian joked in a statement. 

Executive producers Raj Kapoor and Katy Mullan said: "Jimmy has cemented himself as one of the all-time great Oscars hosts with his perfect blend of humanity and humor, and Molly is one of the best live TV producers around."

How to watch the Oscars

The Oscars will be broadcast live on ABC at 7pm ET/4pm PT, with the ceremony set to last around three hours.
