Death of the Mani-Cam? E! Won't Feature the Camera on Oscars Red Carpet
Several stars snubbed the manicure camera at the SAG Awards, but a network rep says there's simply not enough space on the Academy Awards red carpet.
A version of this story first appeared in the Feb. 27 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.
After snubs at the SAG Awards — Julianne Moore, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon declined to parade their digits for E!’s cameras — the net’s manicure camera was noticeably absent from the Grammys preshow carpet, replaced by the clutch cam. But the manicam will return one day — just not to the Oscars “because of space constraints,” says E! senior vp media relations Sarah Goldstein. “We won’t have the clutch cam either, per usual.”
