"Oscars Opening Ceremony: Live From The Red Carpet," is produced by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and ABC News Live Events Group.
"The 'Oscars Opening Ceremony' captures the energy and excitement of the red carpet like no other," said 90th Oscars producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd. "This year promises to be even better with exclusive interviews and access you won't find anywhere else."
Executive Producer John R. Green said, "We challenged ourselves to make this, our fourth consecutive year producing the official Oscars pre-show, the most exciting one yet. From a new, circular stage literally in the middle of the red carpet, additional camera angles never seen before and a few surprises planned, we want viewers to feel like they're right in the middle of the action."
The 90th Oscars will be held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be broadcast live on The ABC Television Network at 8 p.m. "The Oscars" will also be televised in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
