Trying to plan your night around Oscars? Remember that the show begins at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC.

Red carpet coverage will begin at 7 p.m., so plop down on your couch an hour and a half before the big show if you're interested in seeing everyone's cool dresses and outfits beforehand.

Chances are, the Oscars ceremony will run late tonight and end around midnight Eastern time, so if you're not interested in being parked in front of the TV for hours on end, just wait until the actual ceremony begins to tune in.
