If you want to watch the Oscars 2023 live, you have to stay up late. Although the Academy Awards are taking place on March 12th, due to the time difference, the gala in Germany can only be seen on the night of tomorrow, Monday. Where can film fans tune in to the 95th Academy Awards?
As usual from previous years, ProSieben is broadcasting the event, which is taking place in the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. From 11:30 p.m., the station will first show impressions of the red carpet, which countless stars will once again strut across. Moderator Steven Gätjen (50) reports live on site.
The award ceremony can then be seen immediately afterwards from around 1:00 a.m. German time. US moderator Jimmy Kimmel (55) will present the gala, supported by numerous famous presenters. According to the Academy, stars such as Antonio Banderas (62), Glenn Close (75), Janelle Monáe (37), Hugh Grant (62), Michael B. Jordan (36), Nicole Kidman (55), Dwayne Johnson (50) and Florence Pugh (27) perform.
Film fans who prefer to stream the event can use several alternatives. For example, the broadcaster will offer a free live stream on its homepage. However, users can also stream the TV broadcast via the in-house service Joyn - or via providers such as Zattoo and Waipu.tv, where users can only receive the channel for a fee.
It could be a historic award ceremony for Germany. "Nothing New in the West" by Edward Berger (53) has been nominated for an Oscar nine times - a mark that no German (co-)production has been able to achieve so far. In addition, the Netflix war drama has been proposed in the king category alongside "Avatar: The Way of Water", "Elvis", "Top Gun: Maverick" and "Everything Everywhere All at Once" and could be voted "Best Film". . Never before has a German production even gotten the chance to win this Academy Award. In addition, "Nothing New in the West" has also been nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, among other things.
"I have a good feeling that 'Nothing new in the West' is making history not only through the nominations, but also through the Oscars that the film will win," explains Gätjen at least in an interview with ProSieben. The moderator already sees the Academy Award for the best foreign language film in Berger's hands. In the "Best Film" category, however, it was a "close race".
