>> live from hollywood, this is "on the red carpet at the oscars" with our own stunning stars, george pennacchio, kristen aldridge, roshumba williams and yu tsai. to you, george. george: thank you very much. we're counting down to the 88th annual academy awards. joining me now is my counterpart from wabc tv in new york, sandy kenyon, before we talk, our helicopter has captured some
a small protest in hollywood led by the reverend al sharpton, over the lack of diversity at the oscars for the second year in a row. a peaceful protest is going on involving the entire #oscars go white campaign. but chris rock is hosting the oscars. he's been in complete silence what are you hearing about him? >> he had the #black out #see you sunday. that's the last we heard from him. i heard it's going to be blistering. there are going to be some folks who are very uncomfortable in that all of a sudden. for me, that's going to be something to watch. tune in because who knows what he's going to say, buzz but but it's going to be funny. george: what do you think are the chances of "the revenant"
>> it's got a chance. two big competitors. i think leonardo dicaprio, best actor, "the revenant," best picture and then screen play, so-called consolation prizes, though they aren't, to the vine and writers of "the big short." adam mckay is the writer, co-writer of "the big short," so he takes home an oscar for that. then that's adapted then the original screen play is "spotlight." three oscars, i think that's the way it's going to go. george: you have it all figured out. >> an alternate scenario is best
beautiful. kristen: which of our nominees will steal the fashion spotlight? as a spokes model for louie vuitton, it's no surprise alisha vikander has been wearing that label almost exclusively this awards season. she sparkled in a patch work swelled gown. jennifer jason leigh has found a connection with roland mouret's dresses. awards season kate winslet tries something new.
