The glitz and glamor of Hollywood will be brought into American homes once again when the 90th Academy Awards gets underway tonight.

Among the movies up for Best Picture are "Get Out," "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" and "The Shape of Water."

Jimmy Kimmel resumes his hosting duties from last year, with award presented including Mark Hamill, Gal Gadot, Jane Fonda and Oscar Isaac.

Here's how you can catch the show tonight.

When does it start and what channel?

The 2018 Oscars start at 7 p.m. Central from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

ABC is the broadcaster, so in the Twin Cities you should flick to KSTP Channel 5.

How to see what everyone's wearing

If you want to check out all the stars arriving on the red carpet, then you'll want to start watching a little earlier.

"The Oscars: All Access" gets underway at 5:30 p.m. Central and will be streamed on the academy’s page on Facebook Watch, ABC’s Facebook page, Oscar.com and ABCNews.com.

The ABC channel meanwhile will also start its Oscars coverage at 5:30 p.m. live from the red carpet.

If you're on social media, the L.A. Times notes that "Spiderman" star Tom Holland is taking over Instagram's official Instagram Stories, providing behind the scenes glimpses of the Oscars.

How to stream it

If you don't have an analog antenna or a cable subscription, you can stream the Oscars live via the ABC Go website.

You can also catch it through streaming services like Sling TV, YouTube TV, Playstation Vue and DirecTV Now.

And if you have a Roku, Apple TV or an Amazon Fire Stick, you can download the ABC app to watch.
