Tonight the 84th annual Academy Awards. An Academy Award is an award bestowed by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) to recognize excellence of professionals in the film industry, including directors, actors, and writers. The Oscar statuette is officially named the Academy Award of Merit and is one of nine types of Academy Awards. It is a pretty big deal the world over because , well. just about everyone enjoys a great movie and then there are the favorite stars.
The Oscars as the awards are also known by happen at the now former Kodak Theatre. It is to be referred to as the Hollywood and Highland Center Theatre now- or until such time as some company ponies up big $$ to get their name on this high profile complex.
Some of my favorites whether they are currently nominated or not
Tonight it will be just my daughters and I watching, since my husband who works in Television, is working the Academy Awards tonight to ensure that there are no technical faux pas, so we can all enjoy the show. Thanks honey!
