The famous red carpet and gold Oscar statue found its way into the telecast as well — with a rich maroon red and gold being used for the graphics’ main color scheme.

The insert graphics used a combination of boxy sliding lines and blocks along with angular elements.

Typography was both and clean with a geometric typeface similar to Century Gothic — which was also used in the Oscars’ logo design for this year

Insert graphics were accented with subtle bursts of light, with rectangular elements primarily used for film names and labels, while a more traditional lower third design with angled sides was used for nominees that required more space for names.

The angled design was also used to showcase live images of nominees awaiting the announcement of the winner, with the presenters visible on screen from an angled “window” on the left side.
