Oscars 2024: Star-studded rehearsals are in full swing

Final preparations for the 96th Academy Awards are in full swing. One day before the prestigious awards ceremony in Los Angeles, the famous laudators came together at the Dolby Theater to rehearse their speeches - including an almost makeup-free Jennifer Lawrence (33) and actor Chris Hemsworth (40). Photos of the rehearsals are available to “People” magazine, among others.

There was also a small “Beetlejuice” reunion between Catherine O’Hara (70) and Michael Keaton (72) at the dress rehearsal. The two stars were on stage together, apparently handing over one of the golden boys together in the evening. The “Barbie” actress Kate McKinnon (40) and America Ferrera (39), who was nominated for an Oscar, were also on stage together. Her “Barbie” co-star Issa Rae (39) also took part in the rehearsal.

Also there were actress Anya Taylor-Joy (27), Hollywood star Al Pacino (83), "Oppenheimer" actress Emily Blunt (41), actress Lupita Nyong'o (40), Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (51), “Wicked” star Cynthia Erivo (37) and director Steven Spielberg (77).

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had announced the laudators one by one over the past few weeks. These include Ryan Gosling (43), Ariana Grande (30), Charlize Theron (48), Christoph Waltz (67) and many others. The four winners of the acting categories from last year - Brendan Fraser (55), Michelle Yeoh (61), Ke Huy Quan (52) and Jamie Lee Curtis (65) - are also included.

The 96th Academy Awards ceremony will take place on the night of March 10th to 11th. In Germany, the red carpet broadcast can be seen on ProSieben from 11:25 p.m., the actual awards ceremony starts at midnight. The Oscar show will be moderated by entertainer Jimmy Kimmel (56).
