Movie goers will be delighted to know that Sky Cinema will bring viewers in the UK and Ireland exclusive coverage of the 90th Oscars® on a dedicated channel that will also feature over 100 past winners.
Available in the collection of films on Sky Cinema Oscars® are some of the best movies to have taken home statues over the years, including Best Picture winners Forrest Gump (1994), The Sound of Music (1965) and more.
The channel will also feature Oscar-winning family favourites such as Zootropolis (2016), The Incredibles (2004), Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), and the live-action remake of The Jungle Book (2016).
Sky Cinema also offers viewers the chance to see some of this year’s nominees On Demand – including Best Picture nominee Get Out (2017) and Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast (2017).
Coverage of this year’s awards ceremony – the landmark 90th Academy Awards – will arrive on Sunday 4 March on the dedicated Oscars channel. Alex Zane will host Sky’s coverage on the night alongside Rachel Riley, Sanjeev Bhaskar and Boyd Hilton, who will add their expertise.
Contenders include the Frances McDormand-led Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird, Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water, Jordan Peele’s Get Out, wartime drama The Darkest Hour and Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread, starring Daniel Day-Lewis.
