EW and PEOPLE celebrate Oscars with live red carpet pre-show
EW and PEOPLE will be reporting live from three different spots on the red carpet at this year’s Oscars.
In celebration of the 90th Academy Awards, airing March 4, PEOPLE editor-in-chief Jess Cagle will host the PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Red Carpet Live pre-show from the red carpet bleachers at PEOPLE’s sixth annual Oscar Fan Experience. He’ll be joined by more than 300 VIP guests, as well as EW senior writer Sara Vilkomerson and PEOPLE style and beauty director Andrea Lavinthal, to discuss all things fashion, predictions, and celebrities. The 90-minute live-streamed show will also feature commentary and interviews with celebs straight from the red carpet.
Further, PEOPLE deputy editor JD Heyman, PeopleTV’s Lola Ogunnaike, and EW digital staff editor Gerrad Hall will be interviewing celebrities and offering commentary from two additional locations on the red carpet.
“The Academy Awards is the ultimate red carpet event for people who love movies, glamorous stars, and fashion,” Cagle said in a statement. “This year PEOPLE and EW are offering even more live red carpet pre-show coverage featuring celebrity interviews and style commentary, plus the opportunity to interact with fans on-site in the red carpet bleachers along with movie enthusiasts on social media leading up to the broadcast.”
Beginning at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT, the PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Red Carpet Live pre-show will be broadcast on PEOPLE and EW’s streaming network, PeopleTV, in partnership with Twitter. The show also can be streamed from PEOPLE.com, EW.com, InStyle.com, Time.com, Facebook Live, and YouTube Live.
The 90th Academy Awards will air Sunday, March 4 on ABC. Jimmy Kimmel is hosting, and confirmed presenters include 2017 winners Emma Stone, Mahershala Ali, and Viola Davis.
