Mingle Media TV Network and Kristyn Burtt were invited to cover the 2011 Oscar’s Gift Lounge from GBK Productions, one of the leading gifting suite production companies. GBK honored the presenters and nominees of the 2011 Academy Awards this year at their lounge at W Hotel in Hollywood and offered its exclusive list of invited celebrities, VIPs, and media an opportunity to enjoy a luxurious environment with gifts, refreshments, charity fundraising and a unique experience provided by Zamani Retreat Kempinski Eight-night vacation plus African Safari Trip with an additional three-nights in Serengeti National Park, Simmons Beautyrest Mattress, Kefty Home Workout Machine, Mp3 Players, In-home FarNorth Infrared Sauna with installation, 020608 Tears of Bleu Jeans and William Rast Sunglasses and others. We love covering the GBK events because they give back to the community and this year the President of GBK Productions, Gavin B. Keilly, will donate proceeds to A New Way of Life, the American Red Cross, City of Hope and other charities.

This year MMTVN was granted credentials for the Oscars and it started with the Nominee announcement in the wee early hours on January 25th. We’re excited to have Kristyn Burtt, well-known for her show ‘The Web Files’ and producer/videographer JD Piche as team MMTVN for the Oscars. Both JD and Kristyn have covered lots of red carpets together and make a great team.
Here’s Kristyn and JD behind the scene’s – you can tell the next stop was going to be their beds after having a 3 AM call time:
What’s even more exciting is that our team’s coverage has been picked up by the Oscar’s! Kristyn’s blog – the Red Carpet Closet was featured on the Oscar’s Facebook Page – she captured the event from start to finish of the Nominee Luncheon! http://redcarpetcloset.blogspot.com/2011/02/i-would-like-to-thank-a…
What’s even more exciting is that Kristyn and JD are being treated like celebrities and getting outfitted by designers for Oscar’s week. Kristyn is being outfitted by Chagoury Couture where A-listers go for red carpet dresses (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HQP7K2mVXs) and JD is getting fitted for a Tuxedo by a locally owned formal wear outfitter: Elite Tuxedo in Westwood.
Starting next week, Kristyn and JD will be covering Oscar events such as the preview of the Governor’s Ball, The Food and Beverage Preview, Gifting Suites, Director’s Award Show, Makeup Symposium and the MTVu Oscar Correspondent competition all leading up to the big day on Sunday the 27th of February.
