As all of you probably know the Oscar’s took place in West Hollywood this Sunday night. The Kodak Theatre actually is a 5 minute walk away from our apartment and we didn’t only experience how much buzz this ceremony causes this Sunday. They started preparing the Kodak Theatre at the beginning of this week for the show and traffic on and around the Hollywood Boulevard was pretty crazy.
We watched the show not in West Hollywood but at our friends house in Sherman Oaks. Flo and I actually didn’t watch and even know many of the nominated movies. But we actually watched the show with two people who worked on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and were pretty stocked that “their movie” won the award for best editing (which is what they have worked on).
It actually feels pretty weird to live right next to the famous place where the Oscar’s are being hosted, but on the other hand it is as normal as many other things in LA like for example seeing famous people. I already told you a few of the famous faces we saw in the last year in LA. Last week my boss had Entourage actor Adrian Grenier in the office and surprisingly most of the girls around were pretty bumped by how normal that guy looks. Flo applied for a Freelance Design job on Craigslist the other week, got the job and now designs a Fan shirt for the guy who played the little boy in Poltergeist back in 1982.
Life in LA can feel – especially during the award season – a little weird, but as long as you are not in this industry life continues as usual.
