The Oscar®’s official pre-show has a mixed bag of hosts this year including reporters from two broadcast rivals.

Entertainment Tonight’s Jann Carl, Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson, Chris Connelly and Jim Moret will co-host the Academy’s arrivals show Oscar Countdown 2003 preceding the 75th Academy Awards® on Sunday, March 23. This is the first Oscar Night® association for Carl and Robinson, the third for Moret and the fourth for Connelly.

“For the first time this year, there will be a red carpet review of fashion on the show,” said Oscar Countdown Producer Dennis Doty. Style expert Steven Cojocaru will be making his second Oscar Countdown appearance. Cojocaru is the West Coast Style Editor for People Magazine and is a regular style contributor on the Today Show.
