2019 sees the 91st Oscars take place towards the end of February. 

Hollywood is currently right in the thick of what is referred to as Awards Season, and fresh off the back of this year's Golden Globes, the people are hungry for more dresses, more winners and more subtle roasting done by extraordinarily handsome hosts. 

Next up on the humble movie star's agenda is the Academy Awards, where Hollywood's best and brightest come out in their dozens to hopefully come home with a nod from the Academy, and an armful of trophies. 

Here is Irish Tatler's edit on everything you need to know. 


This year's Oscars will be taking place on 24 February 2019.


The 91st Academy Awards will be taking place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

How can we watch?

The whole event will be broadcast live on Sky. Unfortunately for us, time differences means that the ceremony will not air in Ireland until 1am, 25 Feburary. 

Who's set to host?

After a successful two year stint, American talk show host Jimmy Kimmel was due to be succeeded by comedian and actor Kevin Hart as the official host of this year’s awards ceremony.

“To be able to join the legendary list of hosts that have graced that stage is unbelievable," he wrote on his Instagram when news broke of his new gig. 

However, since then, it's been announced that Hart will no longer be playing host amid backlash over the discovery of old homophobic tweets he'd posted that were recently unearthed.

Speaking on the matter, he said: "I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscar's....this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists.

"I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past."

It's not yet been decided who will take his place. 

When will we hear nominations?

Voting is currently open and nominations will be revealed on 22 January 2019. 

Early frontrunners include Bradley Cooper's A Star is Born, Adam McKay’s Vice, Barry Jenkins' If Bale Street Could Talk and Alfonso Cuarón's Roma
