“Hosting the red carpet for M-Net for one of the biggest awards shows in the world is an absolute highlight for me,” Anele said. “I have watched the Oscars every year and the most memorable moments for me were when Denzel Washington, Sandra Bullock and Charlize won. “
“This year I look forward to celebrating with the Black Panther cast as they head in with seven Oscar nods,” the host of DStv’ s The Voice South Africa enthused.
“We have to speak to Bradley Cooper and salute his directing for A Star Is Born, as well as his performance in it. We must also get Spike Lee – who has an honorary Oscar but has his first ever nomination as director forBlackKklansman, which you can currently watch on Box Office. And then we hope to chat to Mahershala Ali who was nominated for Green Book and of course Glenn Close for The Wife. We also can’t forget about Rami Malek andBohemian Rhapsody! And then, of course, there’s the fashion!”
