Hollywood Blvd. was closed for a week before the ceremony, because there was quite a bit to set up. It was raining off and on for the Oscars, and here are some pictures of the red carpet being constructed. Gotta keep those statues dry...
Luckily, for most of the ceremony on Sunday it was bright and sunny. So was this British reporter's horrifying dress. You could hang it from the ceiling, shine a light on it, and have a 70s dance party.
And now for the famous people. Our strategy: yell their names and get them to wave at us. It pretty much worked.
Yes, that was Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Morgan Freeman. Awesome! We decided to stop taking pictures after a while because we figured there'd be better quality pictures online, plus we were having fun just watching everyone.
After the red carpet, we were taken across the street to the El Capitan Theatre for a catered watch party. It was pretty dang cool.
Finally we headed home after a really tiring but amazing day. Here's a view of the Kodak after it was all said and done.
I hope we get to do it again next year.
