We’re excited to have covered the Oscar’s Luncheon with our correspondent, Kristyn Burtt, in attendance. This is one of those events where you get credentialed as press but can’t do video and can’t do photos but can take lots of notes and plug into their feed.
Being an online TV network sometimes has it’s challenges at these events because we don’t operate like a traditional TV station nor do we have the ability to take their video format and try to use it… so we go with what works…. that is until it’s digital all the way and we can take advantage of the interface.
Who do the nominees like to hang out with?
Brad Pitt and George Clooney – they’re the cool kids.
What are the ladies wearing? It’s still to early to know.
Only a few nominees had an answer, the rest were still being courted by the couture houses so we’ll be surprised when they walk the red carpet.
Eighteen of the 20 nominees in the acting categories were among 150+ Oscar nominees who were in attendance Monday, February 6, at the Beverly Hilton for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to honor for this year’s Oscar contenders at the annual Nominees Luncheon.
Don’t worry, we will be back with more Behind the Scenes coverage on the road to the Oscars with our Behind the Red Carpet coverage featuring Kristyn Burtt.
