Champagne carpet and crisis team ready for the Oscars | Movie theater

Hollywood stars will walk across a champagne-colored carpet at the Oscars this Sunday, as organizers work hard to keep the spotlight on what matters most: the nominated films that drew crowds back to theaters.

In the event of an unexpected turn of events, a crisis response team will be on hand at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. The group was formed after Will Smith slapped Chris Rock onstage last year, tarnishing the film industry’s most prestigious ceremony.

In this edition, the 95th, the Academy of Cinematographic Arts and Sciences hopes to overcome the plateau and stage a brilliant show with new elements to attract younger viewers and increase audiences.

The show starts at 8pm local time (midnight on Monday in Lisbon) and will be broadcast live on the Walt Disney Co. ABC network. In Portugal, the ceremony can be followed through the RTP1, with the arrival of the artists being accompanied by the public station from 23:30. Comedian Jimmy Kimmel returns as host for the third time.

Producers said they plan to celebrate the industry’s recovery over the past year, a recovery some feared would never happen during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Several of 2022’s biggest hits landed in the best picture race, from Top Gun: Blood Meridian It is Everything Everywhere at the Same Time until elvis It is Avatar: The Way of Water.

“Among our nominees are films that not only hit the heart but also generated box office revenue,” said producer Glenn Weiss. “We really wanted to underscore that point.”

The big films in the scrutiny, rather than some of the underseen films nominated in recent years, could help bring in more viewers. Last year, the television audience was the second lowest ever, with 16.6 million viewers.

New: QR codes will appear on television screens before commercial breaks with links to two- to three-minute videos about the nominees. The organizers hope that sharing information about the candidates will give viewers reasons to immerse themselves in the show and not change channels.

To change up the look, organizers ditched the traditional red carpet for the first time since 1961, opting for a champagne color instead. The entrance to the “stars” is covered by a dark tent that will give the appearance of glam nocturnal.

Everything Everywhere at the Same Time, a story about a Chinese immigrant in the United States who has the tough mission to save the world by crossing several parallel universes and exploring all the lives she didn’t get to live, is a favorite to win the Oscar for best picture. the adventure of kung fu large scale swept the main Hollywood awards in the weeks leading up to the Oscars.

Star Michelle Yeoh clashes in the best actress category with Cate Blanchett, who played a rogue orchestra conductor in tar. The best actor could turn out to be a duel between the star of elvisAustin Butler, and Brendan Fraser, who played an obese man in The whale.

Ke Huy Quan leads the supporting actor race for his role as Yeoh’s disaffected husband in All in Every Side. Quan, a child star in the film Indiana Jones and the Temple Lost​, from 1984, is also in the nominations. Quan stopped acting for two decades because he saw few opportunities for Asian actors.

Angela Bassett is considered a supporting actress favorite for her portrayal of Queen Ramonda in the superhero movie Black Panther: wakanda forever.

The winners are voted by around ten thousand actors, producers, directors and cinematographic technicians that make up the cinematographic academy.

Among the evening’s musical performances, pop superstar Rihanna will sing her song named lift me up in wakanda forever.

All technical awards will be given live. Last year, some were announced before broadcast to try to keep the show within three hours. This caused a negative reaction from backstage workers and did not result in a shorter show. The broadcast lasted three hours and 40 minutes.
