7.30pm, NBN

THE `red carpet arrivals' at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles will be screened live from 9.30am.

Richard Wilkins will present a red carpet highlights package from 7.30pm, before Steve Martin steps into Billy Crystal's shoes.

This is Martin's first outing as host of the biggest show in Tinseltown.

Julia Roberts is a dead cert to win Best Actress for Erin Brockovich.

But has she run out of acceptance speeches after her recent golden run at gong shows?


6.30pm, Ten

THE new pin-up in Ramsay St is Matt Hancock, who lands a job at Lou's pub.

Matt, by the way, is the character's name.

The 20-year-old actor who plays him is Stephen Hunt and this is his first role on TV.

Matt, according to Network Ten, is `intelligent, but has trouble applying himself to study'.

Apparently, `his parents despair about his future but are secretly proud of his handsome looks and wit'.

They are indeed blessed.

By the way, Ten advises that Hunt has a pet cat called Elmo, which he adopted from the RSPCA.


6pm, ABC

THIS new series is aimed at teenagers and pre-teens.

It's set in a waterlogged Britain in 2025 and follows a group of youngsters who battle evil government agents.

Global warming has led to `the drowning' and a totalitarian regime with strict rules that ban `Climeys', or climate refugees, from entering Britain.

But our heroes take on the baddies, with the help of two genetically engineered children with telepathic powers.

Life Force has a promising premise.

It's just a shame the first episode drops the viewer in the deep end with minimal plot explanation.

And the crappy synthesiser muzak is relentless.
