Winning an Oscar is one of the highest honors an actor or actress can receive, and many big stars have been nominated to receive Oscars this year.

However, not only do actors and actresses get a chance to shine, but the movies themselves also win some big awards like Best Picture and Best Animated Feature Film.

If you’re going to be home to watch the Oscars, you can catch the ceremony starting at 7pm ET tonight on ABC, and you won’t need cable to watch the show as it airs on ABC. Instead, you’ll only need one aerial antenna.

But if you won’t be home to watch the festivities, you can still watch the ceremony on your computer or mobile device.
