Oscar Producers Talk Early Start Time, 20 Previous Winners Presenting Acting Prizes & That Massive ‘I’m Just Ken’ Number With 65 Male Dancers Backing Ryan Gosling: “We’re Going Big!”

Producers of the 96th Academy Awards talk about their plans for the show

ABC this week has really ramped up their promos fronted by the host that remind viewers of the earlier start time as Kimmel is seen holding an Oscar and pointing out this 96 year old guy “wants to get to bed” at a decent hour. Well yes it is all out there now, but if you want to know just who the past winners participating are just take a look at the combined press releases the Academy has been putting out listing this year’s presenters (something Condon and Mark never did in order to keep it top secret). One thing to look for when I did just that is the Best Supporting Actress group the producers have appeared to line up which, with an organization dedicated in recent years to showing their increased efforts on diversity, will be a remarkable moment on stage for people of color who also have an Oscar at home.
