Robin Roberts To Host Oscar Red Carpet Show

By: Lindsay McCane - February 18, 2014

The Academy Awards are quickly approaching, and ABC has revealed their lineup of the Oscar red carpet pre-show, Red Carpet Live, hosts.

This list includes Good Morning America hosts Robin Roberts and Lara Spencer, actor and model Tyson Beckford, and the editorial director of PEOPLE magazine and Entertainment Weekly.

The announcement was made during Monday morning’s episode of Good Morning America. The event will kick off on Sunday, March 2 at 7 p.m. ET.

Roberts, who fought a hard battle against cancer last year, has hosted the pre-show four previous times. This year will make her fourth.

Roberts, Lara, and the rest of the crew will be stationed outside of Dolby Theatre at Hollywood and Highland, and will have the opportunity to speak with all of the celebrities, as they make their way into the building.

After the announcement was made, on Good Morning America, Roberts took to her personal Twitter account to share her enthusiasm with her fellow hosts. “Hey @JessCagleEW , Hey @TysonCBeckford! @LaraSpencer and I look forward to sharing the red carpet with you at the Oscars. #RedCarpetLive,” she tweeted.

Ellen DeGeneres will be hosting this year’s Academy Awards, which marks her second time.

      Seems like more and more a declaration of being gay creates opportunities. Ellen is hosting, Robin on the carpet. Hollywood is loving it.

    I think these celebrities will do a great job. Being Gay has nothing to do with it. Sounds like you people are a little too homophobic for your own good.
