Gunn, Roberts to host Oscars red-carpet arrivals

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Take "Good Morning America" and "Project Runway," add some Entertainment Weekly, and you've got the hosts of the red-carpet arrivals show at the Oscars.

Producers say ABC morning news co-anchor Robin Roberts, fashion guru Tim Gunn and EW managing editor Jess Cagle will host the official Academy Awards pre-show, "Oscars Red Carpet 2009." They will interview celebrities and talk fashion and film during the 30-minute live program.

Gunn, who also serves as chief creative officer at Liz Claiborne Inc., says the Oscars are "the ultimate fashion show."

The Oscars will air live from the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles on Feb. 22.
