The acting awards season has been exciting us all since the beginning of the year and will culminate with the 95th Oscars Awards ceremony this sunday. All the biggest names in films will be there strutting their stuff in designer wear but it won’t be the red carpet they are walking. It will be the CHAMPAGNE carpet!
The Oscars red carpet was unveiled while event preparations were in full swing, only to reveal that this year’s version of the legendary red carpet is actually ‘Champagne’ in colour.
According to American Broadcast network ABC, it is the first occasion since 1961 that The Academy has deviated from convention and given the carpet a subdued makeover.
Jimmy Kimmel, the host of this year’s show, was present for the major announcement on Wednesday at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood where the 95th ceremony in the shows history will be hosted.
The well-known comedian, who has three times since 2018 presented The Oscars, joked with the audience, saying, “I’m excited, especially for the carpet.
“This carpet is so beautiful, it’s a remnant, we got it for a very good price down town. I think this is great, people have been asking is there going to be any trouble this year, is there going to be any violence, and we certainly hope not.
“But if there is, I think the decision to go with a champagne carpet, rather than a red carpet shows how confident we are that no blood will be shed.”
What’s the real reason the carpet is changing colour thought? Very simple… the organisers wanted a change!
According to Academy CEO Bill Kramer, the arrivals line will have crimson drapes on all sides and a Champagne-colored carpet in place of the customary red which will give the celebration a more ‘lux’ look.
The Oscars is sure to give a drama packed evening with the biggest names up for film awards including, Tom Cruise, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michelle Yeoh, Brendan Fraser, Ana De Armas, Austin Butler and Angela Bassett. You bet we’ll be watching live what is sure to be a dramatic evening as always!
