The Red Carpet Report, Mingle Media TV’s “Oscar Insider” on Best Picture Nominees

In this ongoing series of blog posts, we’ll be sharing the observations of our Entertainment Reporter, Kristyn Burtt, with you between now and the Oscars. We’ll be covering the Oscars from set up to day of at the Kodak Theatre and will be on the red carpet talking to celebrities on the day of the event as well.

Today, we’re looking at Best Picture Nominees that are up for the Oscar – and this is one that we believe will also be the Best Director too. Let us know your thoughts by posting here on our blog.

New rules – each movie had to had 5% of the vote in the #1 slot to be considered for Best Picture. We narrow it down to The Artist or The Help. The Help won big at the SAG Awards but as Kristyn points out the SAG Awards is about acting not that’s not a best picture. We all loved The Artist due to the romance and nostalgia celebrating movies – if you haven’t seen it, there’s still time.

Best Picture Nominees

  • “The Artist” Thomas Langmann, Producer
  • “The Descendants” Jim Burke, Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor, Producers
  • “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” Scott Rudin, Producer
  • “The Help” Brunson Green, Chris Columbus and Michael Barnathan, Producers
  • “Hugo” Graham King and Martin Scorsese, Producers
  • “Midnight in Paris” Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum, Producers
  • “Moneyball” Michael De Luca, Rachael Horovitz and Brad Pitt, Producers
  • “The Tree of Life” Nominees to be determined
  • “War Horse” Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, Producers

Mingle Media TV and Kristyn Burtt were invited to come out and cover the preview of the Governors Ball for the 84th Academy Awards marking the 18th year that Wolfgang Puck has been at the helm for this Oscar event. This year’s menu was created by Wolfgang Puck with Chef Partner Matt Bencivenga and Executive Pastry Chef Sherry Yard and features fifty dishes that are comprised of local produce and sustainable seafood. The dishes range from one-bite hors d’oeuvres to small-plate entrees and will be served buffet style all evening. Seafood lovers won’t be disappointed as there will be smoked salmon Oscars, chicken pot pie with shaved black truffles, lobster tacos and beet salad. Everyone will be going home with an Oscar with Pastry Chef Sherry Yard’s infamous gold-dusted chocolate Oscars.

The theme this year is the future of Oscar in 3D and guests will find themselves lounging on chaises and padded chairs with over 1400 strands of Swarovski crystals hanging overhead. With 1,500 guests and 950 staff there will be a lot of care given to make sure everyone enjoys the evening… especially with 1,000 bottles of Moët & Chandon Champagne to be enjoyed during the evening.

It’s amazing to know that over 90% of the menu will come from local providers except for the “Maine” lobster and the “French” truffles. There will also be over 5000 chocolate Oscar statuettes which are covered in over 25 pounds of 24K gold dust for dessert. Pastry Chef Sherry Yard was inspired by the future of movies with her chocolate mousse and chiffon cake dessert shaped like a staircase which leads up to an Oscar placard made of white chocolate.

The care taken to provide the most sustainable, “green” foods for the menu is incredible. Meat, poultry, and dairy goods are raised without hormones or antibiotics, with the unused foods to be donated to Angel Harvest. They will also be recycling plastics, metals, paper, glass and composting floral arrangements. Some of the arrangements will also be donated to local homes for the elderly.

Wolfgang Puck Catering sets the standard for gracious hospitality and expert service in more than 45 exclusive venues nationwide. The Wolfgang Puck Companies – which comprise 21 fine dining restaurants, premium catering services, and quality kitchen and food merchandise – together express Puck’s passion for cooking and living well.
