    "If you can't be in front of the TV, or if you have cut the cord, then the ABC App is a great way, actually probably the only way, to watch the Oscars online. The ABC App is also great because it gives you access to the other shows on ABC."

    "Actually, you cannot watch the 2019 Academy Awards, but PlayStation Vue shared its own run with streaming the previous Oscars 2018."

    "I browsed all sections of the website, but I can't seem to find where to watch the upcoming oscars. I can only see the nominees and the Oscars 2018. Can somebody help me out? :("


Did you know that the Oscar statuettes, the trophies handed out to people who won their categories in the Academy Awards, are supposedly sculpted based on the naked figure of a 20-something Mexican actor Emilio Fernandez? According to an article in BBC, a Mexican actress named Dolores del Rio, the wife of Oscar statuette designer Cedric Gibbons, claims that her friend Emilio posed naked in front of Oscar statuette sculptor George Stanley. This has not been proven and has added to the already mysterious history of the Oscars, which is officially named Academy Awards but has been named Oscars because of unknown reason or reasons. One theory is that former Academy president Bette Davis called the trophy Oscar after her first husband, Harmon Oscar Nelson, while another theory is that former Academy executive secretary Margaret Herrick called the trophy Oscar because it reminds her of her cousin Oscar Pierce. The latter theory was witnessed by columnist Sidney Skolsky and reported that the Academy employees call the trophy Oscar. Even with all that fame and the mystique, these trophies are virtually priceless as the law requires winners and their heirs to give the Academy the right to the first refusal for the price of $1. So if ever Guillermo del Toro wants to sell his two Oscars for his film The Shape of Water, he must first offer it to the Academy for $1.
