That '70s Show: Regis Returns to Oscar Red Carpet

It's back to the future for Regis Philbin, who's been tapped to host the red-carpet show immediately preceding the Oscars telecast in February – the same job he had some 30 years ago.

"Regis is the perfect guy to serve as host. He knows everyone, and everyone loves Regis!" producer Dennis Doty says in a statement. "I'm thrilled that he has agreed to be the ringmaster for this year's extravaganza."

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is producing the show, which airs Feb. 24 on ABC. Philbin, 76, who co-hosts Live With Regis & Kelly, will guide the half-hour lead-in red-carpet interview show. Philbin was "a pioneer interviewer of arriving stars" at the Oscars in the 1970s, according to the Academy.

The 80th Academy Awards nominations will be announced Jan. 22 at 5:30 a.m. PT.

Jeff Probst Aiming to Replace Regis?

Originally posted 02/16/2005 09:15AM

TEASED: Regis Philbin, 73, introduced Jeff Probst, 43, on Tuesday's Live with Regis & Kelly with more than a suggestion that the Survivor host (who has subbed for Reege in the past) was being groomed to take over for Philbin when he retires. "This is a guy who would kill to sit here every day," Philbin said on camera, before telling cohost Kelly Ripa that Probst "sits here and he looks at you – the whole thing is developing before your eyes." Replied Ripa: "I think a little jealousy is what we're watching unfold." A spokesperson for the Live told the New York Post after the show aired: "Regis was kidding around with a friend of the show, and it's nothing more than that."
