The Time's Up initiative is not planning a coordinated protest on Sunday - like the striking red carpet "blackout" at the Golden Globes. E! is scheduled to air its annual Countdown to the Red Carpet: The 2018 Academy Awards special ahead of the main event Sunday at 1 p.m. EST. Here's what you need to know about the ceremony.
Everybody check that they've got the right envelopes because Hollywood's biggest night is here: The 90th Academy Awards (ABC, 8 p.m. ET/5 PT) will hand out a treasure trove of Oscars Sunday night, though it's anyone's guess who's snagging the most prestigious prize of all.
Who's hosting the Academy Awards?
This year, Jimmy Kimmel will return as the host for a second time after last year.
Given his more politically-charged monologues recently on "Jimmy Kimmel Live", there are sure to be some Trump jokes - and disses.
1,804 - There are a lot of journalists and photographers in town this weekend, previous year the Academy accredited 1804 people working in the media to cover the Oscars. Each Oscars telecast since 2013 has graced our screens for over that 3-and-a-half-hour mark, with an average time of roughly 3 hours, 40 minutes, which would bring this year's telecast to finish around 11:40 p.m. ET, surpassing it's budgeted slot.
Viewers will just have to wait and see if that extra time will translate into longer speeches by the winners. Here, Emma Stone is pictured arriving on the red carpet for the 89th Oscars on February 26, 2017 in Hollywood, California. News, is facing his own backlash following allegations of repeated sexual harassment from a former stylist.
The list is pretty impressive and includes Sandra Bullock, Emily Blunt, Dave Chappelle, Jodie Foster, Eiza González, Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey and Christopher Walken, among others.
Who will win: This category is made a little easier to predict as "Get Out" picked up the Best Original Screenplay award from the Writers Guild of America.
That is the question of the evening. While experts have their top picks, the most talked about category, Best Picture, is still a toss-up.
BEST ACTOR, ACTRESS & PICTURE NOMINEES: The nominees for Best Picture this year are Call Me by Your Name, Darkest Hour, Dunkirk, Get Out, Lady Bird, Phantom Thread, The Post, The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
