The Academy Awards are Sunday, but did last year’s Oscars ever really end? When Hollywood reconvenes at the Dolby Theatre for the 95th Academy Awards, the ceremony will signal many things. The probable triumph of “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” A potentially historic night for Asian and Asian Americans in the film industry. A possibly record number of jokes about “Cocaine Bear.” But for many, nothing will register more than returning to the site of The Slap. In a way, we’re all still living in that moment. A new low for the Oscars but a high point of public fascination, The Slap was immediately etched into collective memory, and its shock has kept reverberating.

Hollywood is gearing up for the 95th Academy Awards, where “Everything Everywhere All at Once” comes in as the lead nominee and the film industry will hope to move past “the slap” of last year’s ceremony. Here's a few key details to know about the upcoming ceremony. The Oscars will be held Sunday, March 12, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony is set to begin at 8 p.m. EST and be broadcast live on ABC. Jimmy Kimmel will host for the third time and his first time since 2018. Don't expect to see Will Smith, who was banned from the show for 10 years.
