Why isn't the Oscar 2023 carpet red?

For the first time in sixty years, the Oscar ceremony in Los Angeles decided to forego the iconic red carpet for the star-studded parade.

A 'champagne' coloured carpet was chosen for the Oscars 2023. In reality, the motivation behind this choice is purely technical: the red carpet was abandoned (at least for this year...) in favour of the champagne carpet to allow television footage to create the day-to-night look.

Thanks to the more muted tone of the champagne colour, in fact, it will be possible to achieve the night effect even when there is still daylight.
