Celeste, H.E.R., Leslie Odom Jr., Laura Pausini, Daniel Pemberton, Molly Sandén, and Diane Warren will perform the five nominated original songs in their entirety for Oscars: Into the Spotlight, the lead-in to the 93rd Oscars. One performance will be recorded in Húsavík, Iceland, and four at the Dolby Family Terrace of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles. Oscars: Into the Spotlight will air Oscar Sunday, April 25, at 6:30 p.m. EDT/3:30 p.m. PDT.
“We’ve come up with some serious pre-game and post-game action to enhance our main event,” said Jesse Collins, Stacey Sher and Steven Soderbergh. “Our suggestion is just tune in for the whole shebang, otherwise you’ll miss something really unexpected and fun.”
Hosted by Ariana DeBose (Hamilton) and Lil Rel Howery (Bad Trip), Oscars: Into the Spotlight will highlight the nominees’ journey to Hollywood’s biggest night, give fans around the world the ultimate insiders’ sneak peek to the party, and, for the first time, bring Oscar music to the festivities. The show will feature a special appearance by DJ Tara.
At the conclusion of the 93rd Oscars, Oscars: After Dark, hosted by actors Colman Domingo (Zola) and Andrew Rannells (The Prom), will feature interviews by film critic Elvis Mitchell. The special recaps the evening’s must-see moments and showcases Oscar winners as they have their statuettes personalized.
Both specials are executive produced by Michael Antinoro and David Chamberlin, alongside producers Collins, Sher, and Soderbergh.
The 93rd Oscars will be held Sunday, April 25, 2021, at Union Station Los Angeles and the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and international locations via satellite.
