It's that time of the year again to gather your friends and watch a really long award show! We got a taste of who might win at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards (cough, cough La La Land) and I think we all know who is going to be the butt of the jokes. Donald Trump, though, is reportedly not watching this year's Academy Awards because *shocker* everyone keeps speaking out against him.

Here is what you need to know about the 2017 Oscars so you are all set!

When and where?

The 89Th Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, February 26th at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California. ABC will be broadcasting the ceremony live.

If you are living on the West Coast, your party is starting a lot earlier as the show itself begins at 5:30 PST. For everyone else, the time will be between 6:30 and 8:30 pm depending on where you live. Tune in earlier (red carpet starts 90 minutes before) to see what everyone is wearing and watch the press make people uncomfortable!

And the face of the 2017 Oscars is...

The late-night show host, Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the 89th Academy Awards! This will actually be the first time the comedian hosts The Oscars but if he is as good as past television hosts (remember Ellen Degeneres' awesome Oscars?), then he will do just fine!

Who was nominated?

If you are playing an Oscars drinking game, you're going to want to take a shot every time La La Land wins.

The musical starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone (both of whom were nominated for best lead actor/actress) was given a record-tieing 14 nominations!

Other film nominations include Moonlight, Fences, Manchester by the Sea, and Hidden Figures. Hopefully, no announcer will make the "Hidden Fences" mistake again!

The Oscars are going to be political

With everything that has been going on this year (looking at you, Mr.

President), celebrities have been using their wins to shed light on important issues. Meryl Streep received her 20th Oscar nomination for Florence Foster Jenkins and if she wins, we can certainly assume she will give another great speech!

Last year's Academy Awards were controversial for #OscarsSoWhite and it looks like the Academy was able to make the 2017 ceremony more diverse with a record number of non-white nominees.

Diversity, however, doesn't seem to be what is on everyone's minds thanks to the White House for taking the spotlight.

Who do you think will win in each category?
