Find out how you can spend a public holiday watching this year’s Oscars.
Kiwis will be able to watch the 93rd Academy Awards live and for free on Monday 26 April. TVNZ is screening the Oscars again this year on TVNZ2. Red carpet coverage begins at 10:30am, followed by the 93rd Annual Academy Awards ceremony from midday.
The awards fall on Anzac Day observed, with the public holiday meaning you can relax in front of the screen instead of camouflaging your viewing from your boss by hiding it in your browser tabs (we swear we’re not speaking from experience).
