A pre-planned trip to Los Angeles coincided with the Academy Awards weekend.
The Oscars rate much higher for me than the SuperBowl.
So I had to check out the action.
|This is the last time the event will be held at the Kodak Theatre as Kodak has declared bankruptcy.|
|Highland was blocked off. Traffic was heavy. And the STD billboard loomed larger than the Oscar poster.|
|The lucky spectators are already sitting in the viewing stands as I type this.|
|Beautiful weekend for this event.|
|He said YES and then he said NO.|
|So Billy got the gig.|
|ABC is broadcasting live in just a few hours.|
|Robin Roberts was busy prepping yesterday afternoon.|
|Her sweats will be transformed into a gown.|
|Stand-in Sandra Bullock was used for testing sound/lighting.|
|Inside the Kodak building but behind the security-guarded barriers.|
|Everybody wants a photo with the gold statuette.|
|Promos being taped ahead of time.|
|It took a very large press pass to get inside.|
|Which film will get Best Picture in 2012?|
