With Oscar nominations around the corner on Thursday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has unveiled the official theme for the 2016 broadcast. Chris Rock is hosting the show on February 28, with the tagline “We all dream in gold.” As Morgan Freeman tells us in the TV spot above, which features clips from awards season films, Oscar night is one on which everyone has that in common.
The dream theme was perhaps hinted on December 30 as nominations balloting began and Academy CEO Dawn Hudson sent an email blast to members with the headline: “MAKE DREAMS COME TRUE” followed by the word “VOTE” painted in big gold letters.
The main promo for the ABC telecast debuted on Good Morning America this morning from Times Square. Check that one out above and another below, along with some key art.
