When Are The 2025 Oscars?

With the 2024 Oscars now concluded in all of its naked John Cena glory, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is already barreling full steam ahead into next year’s award ceremony.

The 2025 Oscars are set for Sunday, March 2, 2025. The ceremony will air live at 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. PST on ABC. As of right now, a host has not been locked down. Should Jimmy Kimmel do the honors again, it will be his fifth time hosting the Oscars, putting him in the rare company of Johnny Carson. However, Billy Crystal and Bob Hope still hold the record for the most hosting gigs, so Kimmel still has a way to go to join their ranks.

According to IndieWire, the Academy has also unveiled the key dates for events like the Governors Awards and the Oscar Nominee luncheon as well as deadlines for votings.
