This is a huge year for Julianne Moore. Not only is she the frontrunner for the Best Actress award, she’s also helping design the green room for the upcoming star-studded event. The Still Alice star has been tapped by the Academy to serve as a design consultant for the backstage area. According to the announcement made by Architectural Digest, Moore will help choose the furniture and décor for the green room.
The five-time nominated actress has a lot of experience with these types of events and says she “knows what it’s like to be backstage on Oscar night.” Moore will work alongside Commune, a design collective from Los Angeles.
After winning the Golden Globe trophy, the buzz for Moore’s performance remains strong. Come Oscar night, Moore will face a fierce line-up of actresses: Reese Witherspoon (Wild), Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night), and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl).

For Still Alice, Moore drew rave reviews from critics. The film was based from Lisa Genova’s 2007 bestselling novel of the same name. In the film, the 54-year-old actress plays a doctor who is suffering from an early onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Moore’s portrayal of a woman struggling to deal with her new-found illness was highly lauded.
Her Golden Globe win suggests that Moore is still considered as the top contender for the highly coveted golden statue. The awards ceremony will be held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on February 22, giving Moore and her team enough time to prepare the green room for the stars who will chill out backstage.
Back in 2012, Moore’s beautiful New York rooftop garden was featured by Architectural Digest. Her garden was highlighted by mid-century furniture, fiberglass planters, and a fence that matches the hip interior of her home. The piece pointed out how furniture, design, and even construction are just some of the things that the talented actress is obsessed with. “Purple, black, gray, white, and green are the only colors I can handle,” she said in the interview, giving us a glimpse at the color palate that she might use for the green room.
This isn’t the first time that the Academy teamed up with a talented actress to curate the green room. Last year, Susan Sarandon worked with design company Rockwell to mount the green room. Sarandon went with a digital art installation that featured images from the Academy’s long list of socially conscious films.
