Tweet Actor Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers) and Academy President Cheryl Boone-Issacs have just announced the nominees in the 24 awards categories for the 86th Academy Awards. This marks a new Academy regime, and to mark it The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences replaced the grand bombastic music with something more…tame. I liked the old music, but love the new regime. That aside, the Oscar Nominations List contained a few surprises, like the shutout of the popular candidate for Best Documentary “Blackfish,”...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gk5OANFjmWo For the second year in a row, this blogger interviewed two legends in American Culture, Martin Landau and Richard Anderson. Mr. Landau was excellent in movies like North By Northwest, and Ed Wood where he won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, but I did not know he played most recently as the voice of Mr. Rzykruski in Frankenweenie. (The trouble is that, at The Night Of 100 Stars Oscar Party, there’s no real warning who will come until they get there, and then no publicist...

Tweet During The 85th Academy Awards, someone from The Onion, the newspaper and online satirical publication, issued a Twitter Tweet about Oscars Best Actress Nominee Quvenzhané Wallis that went way beyond the bounds of acceptable taste. The tweet referred to the nine-year-old actress using the “C” word. And while it was immediately taken down, and the Twitterverse rightfully attacked The Onion, the anger that it even happened is sill fresh, and it’s likely to stay that way for another few days after NBC’s...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cHinAcXigE Gloria Allred has come to every Night Of 100 Stars Oscar Party I’ve covered since 2010, and overall I’ve interviewed the famed civil rights lawyer five times. But this fifth time, Allred’s guest, Natalie Khawam, was the quietest client Gloria’s had. Natalie Khawam’s best known as the sister of Jill Kelley, who is, in turn, best known as the pal of General David Petraeus, who in turn was involved in a sex scandal with Superwoman / author / military...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcF26EZdbF4 Sean McNabb was at the Night Of 100 Stars Party and stopped to talk with the media on hand. Sean McNabb was best known as a member of the rock group Quiet Riot before he got on television in the hit show Sons Of Anarchy. Did the TV / music non-split bother him? At first it did, but then “I got used to it,” and now he like it. Mr. McNabb says that what makes Sons Of Anarchy so popular is the number of great actors on the show, and much more than the clothes...

Tweet Zennie62 on Twitter was one of the top four influencers in the hashtag category #Oscars on Oscar Sunday, February 24th. That’s according to Irina Skaya, a social media analyst who used the social media measurement service Topsy to figure it out. Then she issued this Twitter tweet: Say, @irinaskaya what system ranked us for the #Oscars ? @theacademy @heidiklum @msleamichele — Zennie Abraham (@zennie62) February 26, 2013 So this blogger was in pretty good company with The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4FV3b2JqE4 Oscar Sunday started with my friend Eva picking me up at my hotel, the Resident’s Inn By Marriott (which has a great combination of price, room size, and service) and driving us to The Red Carpet for the 85th Academy Awards. What a fun, frenetic time, and because we had to get as much content made as we could (photos, videos, tweets), within an hour window of time. Overall, I’d say we did pretty well. We had to leave at 11 AM, which was perfect for grabbing a...

Tweet Beverly Hills, CA – The 85th Academy Awards is history, and this blogger had another successful visit to Hollywood and Beverly Hills. We’ll focus on The Night Of 100 Stars Party later, but the focus now is on the Oscar winners from last night. The surprise, to me, is that Argo won Best Picture, even after Ang Lee (another surprise) won Best Director for Life Of Pi over Steven Speilberg for Lincoln. In Oscar’s statistical history, Ang Lee’s movie should have been the Best Picture winner, too....

Tweet The 85th Academy Awards and The Night Of 100 Stars Oscars Party is today, what’s called Oscar Sunday, the Super Bowl Sunday of entertainment! And what would Oscar Sunday be without a surprise, this day’s ripe for this one: Argo gets Best Picture over Lincoln. While this blogger explained why in the video below…. The point has to be expanded upon a bit. Last fall, there was an “e-voting” controversy, where many members of The Academy didn’t know how to access the new online voting...

Tweet Hollywood, CA – As this blog’s originating from the Loews Hollywood Hotel, the story of how this blogger got to this place, less than a day from the start of the 85th Academy Awards, is summed up in this embed produced by my Zennie62 On Vidoco page (I’m on the Vidoco Advisory Board): As you can see, the day started with a BART ride to SFO from Oakland, and the discovery that BART tickets are being devalued by my cell phone. To digress for a moment, in other words, I’ll use a BART ticket that has...
