“Live With Kelly and Ryan” hosts Kelly Ripa as Ryan Seacrest prepares for the “After Oscars Show,” which has become an annual tradition

NEW YORK – After Hollywood’s biggest night comes television’s most glamorous morning, and on the post-Oscar show Live with Kelly and Ryan, the hosts will once again speak to the winners shortly after they’ve collected their trophies.

It has become an Oscar tradition to place Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest at the center of films nominated for the industry’s top award.

“Hopefully this play will make people laugh, it’ll make people smile,” Seacrest said. “Obviously we’re going to be celebrating the Oscars and it’s going to be an opportunity for people to make fun of us, which we love. It’s kind of our sweet spot.”

The co-hosts can dress up like movie stars the morning after the big Oscars airs on ABC.

“Ryan is one of the great unsung actors in show business,” Ripa said. “And if he had wanted to take a 90-98% pay cut, he would have been a great actor.”

Their chemistry matches their commitment, and winners’ faces may change, but the result is the same: a chance to be a part of a moment in showbiz history.

“You’re the best version of yourself right now,” Ripa said. “The moment after they win the Oscar and come off the stage and reality kicks in, they forgot to thank their mother or their agent or their spouses.”

Even when a win is predictable, like Will Smith would be if he took home Oscar gold, the actual win still comes as a shock — and that’s what makes great television.

Executive Producer Michael Gelman and his crew only have a few hours to get ready.

“We don’t know what we’re going to do until the show airs,” he said.
