HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES —
Oscar Sunday is here! The red carpet is ready for the stars on Hollywood’s biggest night.
Dolby Theatre and Hollywood has gone through quite the transformation leading up to the big day – and even with mere hours to go before the ceremony begins, there are still last-minute preparations underway.
Much of the protective plastic was recently removed from the red carpet, which was actually raised off street level, thanks to the rain. Thankfully, the skies cleared up just in time for the big day, but the show’s producers did not want to take any chances.
“Listen, we’re prepared for whatever. We make the investment early, the Academy does, and you know what, rain or shine, we’re ready for this thing,” said Joel Lewis, a red carpet producer.
The awards show, which is being hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, comes as the Time’s Up and Me Too movements are taking center stage. Gender equality is expected to be a hot topic at the event.
Don’t miss the Oscars Sunday at 8 p.m. ET | 5 p.m. PT on ABC.
