Final Oscar Photos

 This is probably the last set of photos from the Oscars. Phew.  These were taken by Tyrone Roberts who followed me to several Oscar Week events and photographed all of the action.  You can see more of his work here.

I also did a fun wrap-up with Nic Baisley of Film Snobbery about what happened behind the scenes and we talked about the Anne Hathaway backlash at great length.

Interview with Japanese TV

With my pal, Jordan Carson. You might remember her from last year's Oscar photos.

With one of my favorite film experts, Leonard Maltin.

And the photographer himself in front of the camera, Tyrone Roberts!

Oscars 2013: The Red Carpet Interviews!

The top photo might be my favorite from all three years of covering the Academy Awards. It was so much fun yelling with the fans in the bleacher seats.  How could you not get excited? I am suffering from my usual Oscar hangover from fatigue (not alcohol!). It's such an exhausting, but exhilarating week.

Also, I have been talking a bit about #MySmarterCommerce which is IBM's campaign to see how technology affects our daily lives. It was so interesting for me to see a jump in interactions via Twitter since I was live Tweeting the red carpet. I couldn't even keep up with responding to everyone this year.  Holy cow, it was great!  I love to see technology impacting us all in a fun way.

Here is some of the inside scoop from this year's Oscars:

The perfect interview for Disney dorks, John Lasseter

With Luz Peña from FOXMundo.  You might remember her from Oscars 2011.

Sherri Shepherd from The View is always a fun interview.

Cracking up Django Unchained producer, Stacey Sher. She saw her Oscar nominee info card and we didn't have any "fun facts" about her. Don't worry, she's fun!

The Oscars: 5 Things You Didn't Know

As you know, I've been around Oscar activity all week long. I've been sleuthing around trying to find a few details about the show. Here's what I dug up so far.  Remember, things could change at the last minute because there is a rehearsal tomorrow morning, but as of Saturday afternoon, this is what I heard:

1.  Barbra Streisand is performing the Marvin Hamlisch-written "The Way We Were" as a tribute to the deceased composer and all of the other artists we lost in 2012.

2. Barbra is being dressed by her longtime friend and designer, Donna Karan, who has been buzzing around the star's house getting her outfit red carpet ready.

3.  They are restaging "Cell Block Tango" from Chicago with Catherine Zeta-Jones leading the way. (One of my favorite numbers ever in a musical theatre piece.)

4.  Seth MacFarlane will be crooning at some point during the show. Rumor has it, he sounds just like Frank Sinatra.

5.  The orchestra will not be housed at the Dolby Theatre. There just wasn't enough space for them. They will be playing at the Capitol Records building down the street. (This has been confirmed by WSJ  Online.)

I also released the names of the SYTYCD kids who are performing at this year's show.

For more inside scoop on this year's show and the behind the scenes shenanigans, watch my appearance on Film Snobbery.
