Jones ("Sleepy Hollow," "The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea," "MadTV") and Access Hollywood Live's #MyStyleFinds Mizota will host The Director's Cut feeds during both the pre-show and awards telecast. Shively (ABC's "The Real O'Neal's") will report from the fan bleachers on the red carpet with The Players' Tribune Chief Correspondent Ben Lyons reporting from behind the scenes. "Good Morning America" and ESPN contributing editor Chris Connelly is returning as the official greeter of The Oscars red carpet, which includes welcoming nominees, presenters and performers to the show.

The top morning talker's annual post-Oscar telecast has become one of its most popular episodes and is broadcast from the magnificent Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center.
