I don’t have a DraftKings Online Sportsbook account
If you are like sports fans in many states, you may have access to DraftKings daily fantasy sports but are not yet able to engage in online sports betting. For you, DraftKings is allowing you a chance to play along during the Oscars through a free $25,000 Sunday Movie Awards Pool.
It all gets underway at 8 PM ET and will pay $25,000 in prizes. Participants are asked to answer a series of questions pertaining to the Oscars. If you are among the top finishers in the Oscars pool you will get your piece of $25,000.
DraftKings will even host a $10,000 Pool for a Major League Eating event in the hours leading up to the Oscars.
How to watch the 2021 Oscars
The traditional way of viewing the Oscars this year will be through ABC. A red carpet preshow will also be held at 6:30 PM on ABC and hosted by Ariana Debose and Lil Rel Howery.
If you have cut the cord or don’t have access to over-the-air television, you can stream ABC through a variety of different platforms including Hulu + Live TV, YouTubeTV, AT&T TV or Fubo TV.
