From Monday, 29th February at 8am, HBO Asia delivers the complete Oscars experience live and exclusive across multiple screens.

Reporting live from the star-studded 2016 Oscars red carpet, HBO Asia’s social media crew and Taiwanese-American host, Janet Hsieh, will share the best red carpet moments, pictures, video interviews and heartfelt celebrity shout outs as they interview Hollywood’s most talented stars right before the ceremony.


Adding to the Oscars repertoire on HBO is the special Oscars edition of HBO Sentral that will feature running commentaries in Bahasa Malaysia and interviews with Hollywood celebrities from the red carpet.

For the very first time, HBO Asia’s microsite will feature all major moments of the Oscars ceremony, including special footage from cameras fixed on Hollywood’s elite in the audience of the Dolby Theatre throughout the ceremony, capturing candid moments not seen anywhere else.

Taking viewers behind the scenes as the ceremony unfolds, HBO Asia’s microsite will also feature backstage footage of winner interviews and their thank you speeches as they come off stage after accepting their awards.

Check out the list of Oscar noms here. We’ll say upfront right here and now that we’re not-so-secretly rooting for Leonardo DiCaprio 😉
