Big plans for the weekend? Cancel them. The 2023 Oscars are here, bringing together the biggest and best cinema stars of the past 12 months. Brendan Fraser. Angela Bassett. Steven Spielberg. Austin Butler. Jessica Chastain. Paul Meskal. Ana de Armas. Colin Farrell. Tom cruise. Ah, the level of talent in one place – including the unpredictable drama – is what makes the Oscars such a special event.

On the other hand, the 95th Academy Awards will hope for less drama after the now infamous one Will Smith hits in 2022. That year, Jimmy Kimmel will take the stage to host the prestigious ceremony in Los Angeles, California. There will also be a pre-show red carpet, as well as a countdown to the Oscars show starring Vanessa Hudgens, Lilly Singh and Ashley Graham. Not to mention the numerous performances that Rihanna will perform in right after her performance Super Bowl 2023.
