The star will also be involved with an “Oscars 96 Behind the Scenes Tour’ in addition to interviewing nominees and other talent at the Oscars red carpet.
the hit series ‘Chicken Shop Date’ from Dimoldenberg has over two million subscribers online and has racked up 416 million views to date. The star has had a wide range of guests from Paul Mecsal, Cher and even Jennifer Lawrence.
In conjunction with the news, the Academy’s digital magazine, A.frame, dropped an exclusive interview with Dimoldenberg today in which she said she’s over the moon about her new gig. “What better place to interview Hollywood stars than the Oscars? For me, this is really a dream come true and a dream scenario, really. I’m also really excited to do something original and put my own stamp on the Oscars, to create some really amazing moments and deliver some amazing interviews — some groundbreaking pop culture journalism is incoming,” she offered with a laugh. “I hope so anyway. But I’m trying to not to put too much pressure on myself, but I also just want to do a really, really good job.”
She also singled out a few nominees she’d love to meet. “I’d probably be starstruck to interview Martin Scorsese. He seems so funny from watching his daughter’s TikToks of them together,” she explained. “There’s just so many people on the list that I’d love to meet. Cillian Murphy would be amazing to interview, and Emma Stone! Oh, my gosh, I would love to interview Emma Stone. I just watched Poor Things, and she’s magnificent in that. And again, she seems like she’s a really good time.”
The Oscars will take place on March 10 at the Dolby Theatre and will be available to watch live on ABC.
