The Oscars will not have a red carpet for the first time since 1961

ABC News reports that the Academy Awards have had a red carpet for over six decades. But this year, the Oscars will put out a champagne-colored carpet for stars to walk down. 'Vogue' contributor Lisa Love and Met Gala creative director Raúl Àvila are the ones who implemented the change. Jimmy Kimmel, host of the 95th Oscars, commented on the new carpet color. "I think the decision to go with a champagne carpet over a red carpet shows how confident we are that no blood will be shed.", Jimmy Kimmel, via statement.
