The Oscars: Tonight Starting at 7:00 – Only on ABC40


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — It’s Hollywood’s night to shine as the 85th Academy Awards – The Oscars – are held Sunday night at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

Part of this year’s ceremony will feature a salute to music. Adele is set to perform her nominated theme from “Skyfall” and Barbra Streisand sings for the first time at the Oscars in 36 years.

There will also be a tribute to the James Bond movie series, which is marking its 50th anniversary.

It’s also going to be an incredible opportunity for six young film students who have the chance not only to attend the Oscars, but to share the stage with some of the industry’s biggest names.

Along with all the glitz, glamour and celebrities at the Oscars tonight you might also catch a glimpse of these lucky students.

Oscar producers and this year’s host, Seth McFarlane decided to inspire young filmmakers, asking them to submit a video on how they would contribute to the future of movies.

So instead of models, this year it will be one of the six winners of “The Oscar Experience College Search” handing Oscars to the celebrity presenters.

You can catch the 85th Academy Awards right here on ABC40. Our coverage starts at 7:00 p.m.
