The event hosted by Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin will air from 12pm on Monday March 8th, direct as the occur in LA.

Nine will also repeat the event later that night, at a time yet to be announced.

Last year it repeated the Oscars at 9:30pm.

Pay TV viewers will also get to see the event live on Movie Extra.

    Given that nine edited the live broadcast when they replayed it in the evening last year, I’ll be taping it and watching it back when it suits me! And seeing everything this time!

    Woohoo! It was so nice last year not to have to avoid media and have the surprise spoiled! I’m glad to see it wasn’t just a one-of inspired by Hugh Jackman’s hosting :-).

    As March 8 is a public holiday in ACT (Canberra Day), South Australia (at least in Adelaide due to Adelaide Cup) and Victoria (Labour Day), a lot more people may be watching the daytime telecast at home.

    Thanks for that news David.

    I reckon Nine’s line up at the red carpet may be boosted by some people wanting to extend their North American visit a few days.

    In plain English: Nine’s going to have people there that have just left Vancouver.
