“Once again I am honored to be part of the entertainment industry’s biggest event,” Margolis said. “I look forward to the challenges that (Oscar broadcast producer) Gil Cates has in store for me this year and I can’t wait to get started.”

“Jeff is a great director,” said Cates. “I look forward to working with him on No. 5.”
