Louis J. Horvitz to direct Oscars telecast

Dec. 7, 2004 at 1:00 PM   |   Comments

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Louis J. Horvitz will direct the the 77th Annual Academy Awards telecast, show producer Gil Cates announced Tuesday.

"Lou's a pro and a real artist," said Cates. "I love working with him and you can always bey he'll give you the absolute best show possible."

Horvitz has won four directing Emmys -- three of them for his work on Academy Awards telecasts. This will be his ninth time calling the shots on the Oscars show.

Horvitz said he was particularly enthused that Cates had ideas for "streamlining" the telecast, which will be hosted by comedian Chris Rock.

Horvitz is currently working on the upcoming "The Kennedy Center Honors" -- his 13th time in the control room for that program. In September, he directed his 11th Emmy Awards telecast.

The Academy Awards will be presented Feb. 27, 2005, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, in ceremonies to be televised live by ABC.
