After the COVID-19 pandemic forced an odd and downsized ceremony last year, the Oscars should feel a bit more familiar this year, and will be held in front of a full house at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.
After going without a host since 2018, the awards ceremony will feature a trio of hosts this year: comedians Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes joined by actress Regina Hall.
Here’s everything you need to know if you want to tune in to Hollywood’s biggest night:
