Will Moonlight upset Oscar favourite La La Land? How many times will Jimmy Kimmel’s (faux) arch-enemy Matt Damon be ridiculed during the show? All will be revealed on Sunday (unless the always-overlong show runs late until early Monday morning).

The 89th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), will honor the best films of 2016 and will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on February 26, 2017. During the ceremony, AMPAS will present Academy Awards (commonly referred to as Oscars) in 24 categories. The ceremony, televised in the United States by ABC, will be produced by Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd. Television host Jimmy Kimmel will host the ceremony for the first time.
