The 86th Annual Academy Awards is all set to debut on March 2, but how do you track it? It will be broadcast Sunday night in the United States, which means it will be broadcast in the wee hours of Monday morning for a large part of the world.
Mornings are usually crunch time no matter where you are in the world, rushing to work, getting ready for classes, going for your morning run; all of which makes it difficult to concentrate on other things. Although many TV channels, like Sky Movies in the US and Star Movies in India, will be broadcasting the Oscars live, it isn't easy to sit or be near the TV set at that time (especially for a four hour show).
But here are some other alternatives to see who takes home the golden statue.
