The 2017 Oscar nominees were announced Tuesday morning, and it was the most diverse collection of nominations in years. 


With just a few weeks left before the big night, there's still time to get caught up on all the nominated movies you may have missed. But the big question is — when exactly are the 89th Academy Awards, and what time do they start? 

Date and start time of the Oscars 

The Oscars will air live on ABC at 8:30 p.m. Eastern on Sunday, Feb. 26. This year's ceremony will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. The red carpet typically starts at 7 p.m. Eastern on ABC, so make sure to tune in then if you want to see all the fashion.

This year's nominees have a lot to celebrate: Dev Patel just became the third ever Indian actor to receive a nomination, Viola Davis broke a record for the most nominations for a black actress and La La Land earned 14 nominations — the most nominations for a single film this year, tying Titanic and All About Eve for the most nominations ever. 

How likely are you to make Mic your go-to news source?
