Speaking with Variety about their post-show, Ryan expressed his excitement about interacting with the stars backstage at the Oscars for the first time, having usually been a constant presence on the red carpet itself.

"Live! has incredible real estate backstage for us to get emotion and reaction from the winners before they even realize what’s going on, so we get some very candid conversations and moments," he said.

Kelly enthusiastically added: "The stars come off with their Academy Award, and they are in what I like to call the fifth dimension – they've just won an Academy Award, and it is the biggest achievement in their career, so they are floating on cloud nine.
