Live Coverage
Airs Sunday at 7 pm ET
Hosts Jessica Shaw and Julia Cunningham will update the audience on who wins and loses as the Academy Awards happen. They’ll stay on after the airing to recap the Oscars and play sounds both from the show and from portions of the winners Q-and-A from the Press Room at the Oscars.

The Morning After
Airs all day Monday starting at 8 am ET
The day after the Oscars, EW Radio will be talking all about the event from the awards, to the speeches, to the fashion and everything else.

Already geared up for the Oscars, some of our hosts share their choices for the Oscars:

Mario Correa (host of News and Notes)

Boyhood should win Best Picture because it’s genuinely innovative, totally memorable and utterly unshowy. In its own quiet way, it takes real risks, like not casting Meryl Streep or Benedict Cumberbatch!

Dalton Ross (host of EW Morning Live)

In a year filled with safe award-bait biopics, there were two artistically audacious options that rose above the pack in Birdman and Boyhood. Both were remarkable in their own way, but for me, Birdman combined all the best elements—story, cinematography, acting, overall direction—into a bold and brave narrative that deserves to take home the trophy for Best Picture. Plus, it was just plain weird. And in a world of remakes, reboots and sequels, weird deserves to be rewarded.
