As Oscars is the most coveted event in the history of film making everywhere and for somebody in India to have the Red Carpet Live coverage, it's a kind of privilege. STAR Movies is the only station ever in Asia to get this kind of a right. We have got the ability to do this and not even the biggest of the networks in the US have managed to get rights for the Asian coverage."

The channel has 'Oscar fever' running all month, where an Oscar nominated movie plays everyday after the 9.00 pm movie. STAR Movies is also selling its Oscar-related programming at a premium. "All this comes as a part of industry recognition and just goes to show the kind of clout the Hollywood industry bestows on us," Vidyasagar added.

STAR spokesperson explains that the complete channel has been given the Oscar feel. The spokesperson of the channel says, "Everything has been given the Oscar look and feel.
