Oscars 2018: Ryan Seacrest Facing A Tape Delay On Pre-Show Red Carpet To Avoid Confrontations

This probably isn’t how

Deadline spoke to an industry source earlier this afternoon while the decision was still being made, and the quote — about Seacrest’s alleged sexual misconduct history and the network’s plans to have him on the red carpet even so — is a juicy one.

Here’s what a production insider had to say about it (below):

“The plan being considered is to mainly ensure plenty of time to either cut to Giuliana [Rancic] or to pull the plug altogether unnoticed if an on-camera encounter with Ryan goes into tricky territory.”

Hmmm….

But an E! spokesperson in the same story really danced around the question of a tape-delay, saying (below):

“It’s business as usual. As always, we tape multiple sources of content simultaneously to deliver the best possible show, and there are often brief delays between interviews.”

That’s really a nothing-burger of an answer.

Again, we’ll see if anything major comes down in the next couple hours, but regardless, the fact that we’re even here means Seacrest is in a much different spot than he’s ever ben through his previously-professional career.

Yikes…

Obviously, tape delays aren’t rare in situations like major live televised events, both for shows and red carpets, but this is certainly uncomfortable territory for E! and Seacrest, considering they don’t really have any idea how stars may react to them.
