Red carpet, nostalgia and a new name...

Hope it fits!


The red carpet is down and the scene is almost set for the Oscars 2012. Must try to get used to not calling the venue the Kodak Theater, now that it is officially to be known as the Hollywood and Highland Center.  Think it needs a snappier name! 

It's the 84th Academy Awards. My 17th. The theme this year will be nostalgia, with the theater redesigned to resemble a 'timeless movie theater.' Harking back to the late 1920s, it reflects the key nominees, Hugo and The Artist, both of which pay homage to cinema's early days.
