Check Out the Ultra-Cool Oscar Green Room
By DAVID WEINER
February 27, 2014
As the final touches are being made for Oscar Sunday, ET's Brooke Anderson has a special look behind the scenes at the Architectural Digest Green Room inside the Dolby Theatre, the inner sanctum where all the stars will hang out backstage!
Designed by David Rockwell, who designed the Oscar sets in 2009 and 2010 as well as the interior of the Dolby Theatre, the Architectural Digest Green Room is a collaboration with Oscar winner Susan Sarandon, going for a more contemporary NYC loft look, with a lush outdoor garden adjacent to the room for fresh air.
Décor includes specially selected images of socially conscious Oscar-winning and nominated films from the Academy Archives. Framed stills will also be displayed featuring scenes from Susan's favorite movie genre, madcap comedies of the '30s and '40s. And a high-tech wall comprised of 86 TV screens (in celebration of 86 years of Oscar) will play carefully choreographed and synced film footage.
The Green Room is closed to all press on Oscar night, but this year fans can get a sneak peek at the back stage action, as there will be a Twitter cam in the room for presenters to take selfies! The images will be tweeted out from @TheAcademy Twitter handle with the official #ArchDigestGreenroom hashtag.
