Today is T-not that many hours! There is more press. More gold. More everything! A lot of the Hollywood & Highland shopping center has been shut down, the remainder will be closed as of 8 PM with no access. The credentials that I have been using all week expired then too.
I will be picking up my new one along with 200 others when I attend the red carpet bleachers “Oscars experience” tomorrow. The sun will be out, but there has been wind and I hope I don’t get too sunburned!
This morning I took a pass on the carpet where I found more media doing fancy-dressed B-roll:
Other press weren’t dressed yet as they rehearsed for Sunday.
The team and I are still getting a kick out of taking photos for posterity! I am not sure this is ever going to get old!
There is a fashion-theme to the red carpet walk and there are beautiful drawings of famous women in famous gowns all along the red carpet path. Like Marilyn Monroe.
And Marlene Dietrich.
Being a big Gone With the Wind fan, I love this one.
The broadcasters and cameramen out rehearsing.
This one was fun, as the woman was “standing in” for Robert DeNiro. I also “spotted” Adele, Ben Affleck, Cathering Zeta-Jones and Daniel Radcliffe!
Every time I go into the foyer it is looking more and more beautiful and the Oscars are out in force!
Later in the evening the “fake” celebrity sightings continued, my guess is practice for the show flow and media interviews. George Clooney and his girlfriend Stacey posed for me.
Someone who I will have my eye out for, Jean Dujardin, was weirdly matched up with Tatum Channing…
More media doing B-roll for tomorrow:
I caught Kristin Chenoweth doing more rehearsals on the red carpet as well, man is she short, but she wears some tall boots! Sorry for the odd bit of white on her, there are no photos allowed of credentials and she had hers turned face up.
I love seeing people visiting the mall taking photos, it makes me feel better about all the photos I am taking!
And the last photo of the evening before tomorrow is Oscar in all his glory.
I don’t think I will be able to post to the blog tomorrow, once I leave the hotel in the morning, I will only have my iPhone and my camera. I won’t return until sometime after the show is over. So you’ll have to catch my actual adventures in the red carpet bleachers on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram until I can document them here.
Wish me luck!
