The early bird catches the Oscar nominations.

The nominees for the 89th annual Academy Awards will be announced live at 8:18 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Jan. 24 — and you can watch it here!

Unlike previous years, during which the nominations were announced at an early morning press conference, this year’s contenders will be unveiled during a global livestream.

The categories will be announced through videos featuring various members of the Academy, as opposed to a few selected actors. Brie Larson, Jennifer Hudson, Ken Watanabe, Jason Reitman and more will appear in the nomination videos that air on the livestream.

Early favorites like La La Land, Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea are expected to make strong showings at the nominations following multiple nods at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards. Moonlight nabbed the top drama prize at the Globes, while La La Land won for best comedy or musical.

On the acting side, La La Land‘s Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, Manchester‘s Casey Affleck, Jackie‘s Natalie Portman, FencesViola Davis and Moonlight‘s Mahershala Ali are widely considered strong contenders for nominations.

The 89th Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air live on ABC at 8:30 p.m. ET on Feb. 26.
