Sky Cinema the exclusive home of the 90th Oscars® in the UK and Ireland

Sky Cinema will offer viewers exclusive coverage of the 90th Oscars® on a dedicated channel featuring over 120 past winners.


Sky Cinema Oscars®, which will run from 26 February to 11 March, will screen a number of classics, including the first ever Best Picture winner, Wings (1927), in celebration of 90 years of the Oscars.

Also in the collection – available On Demand and via NOW TV - will be a number of Best Picture winners including The Godfather (1972), No Country For Old Men (2007), and many more.

The Oscars ceremony itself arrives on Sunday 4 March, with coverage beginning on Sky Cinema Oscars with Oscars 2018: Red Carpet Live from midnight, before the Oscars 2018 Live begins at 1.30am on Monday morning.

Alex Zane will return to anchor, alongside a range of guests adding analysis of the night’s big winners.

The full ceremony will also be repeated at 8am later that morning, with highlights of all the key moments at 8pm, on Sky Cinema Oscars.

In the run-up to the ceremony, Sky Cinema viewers can also relive some of most famous moments in Oscars history in a special 60-minute programme, The Oscars: Greatest Shocks, Frocks and Fairytales. The special will run directly in the build-up to Sky’s Oscars coverage at 11pm on Sunday 4 March on Sky One and Sky Cinema Oscars.

Group Director of Sky Cinema Ian Lewis said: “Sky Cinema Oscars is another great offering for our customers. We’ve got exclusive coverage as the home of the 90th Oscars in the UK, as well as a superb array of films from over the years on our dedicated channel, including some of cinema’s greatest ever films.”

Sky Cinema presenter Alex Zane said: “The Oscars ceremony is a memorable occasion every year, from the excitement and glamour of the red carpet to seeing who the big winners are on the night.

This year will be no different, and as the Oscars turn 90, we’ll be there every step of the way to cover everything from the most important night in the film calendar.”

Sky Cinema Oscars is the latest dedicated channel from Sky Cinema and forms part of a stellar 2018 on the service. With a brand new premiere every day, an array of dedicated channels and collections, and, beginning with the release of Monster Family this March, Sky Original films, this year will see Sky Cinema offer customers more choice and variety than ever before.
