And The Oscar Goes To !!!!!





This is what it looks like driving down Hollywood Blvd. toward the Kodak Theater where the Oscars are held every year.  Can you see Oscars head just above the top of the car ? They block the street off to prepare and stage the entrance.
This is the big billboard you have probably seen hundreds of times on T.V. It's huge and overpowering, like many stars. LOL
And this the Kodak Theater were they are going to give someone an Oscar, whoever that well be.

The setting up of the walkway, were the stars will walk down into the theater with the screams from all the fans. I can't imagine what that sounds like. 

Joanne from My Little Cottage In The Making was gracious enough to take me to Hollywood to see what it's all about. It was exciting and crazy. Every walk of life wants to be there. From other countries and states. It was crowded and overwhelming. 

This was my first visit down to Southern CA. in a long time. I came as a child with my parents but don't remember all that much. We may have been by these places but don't have any recall of them. 

Joanne and I had a blast, it was like we had know each other longer than just a few days.  I love meeting new people and it was a wonderful experience. 

I have other pictures and stories to tell of this trip, but I'll share later. I wanted to do this post because today is the day for the Oscars and share my experience.

How exciting to go to Hollywood. I love the Oscars-I call it my "SuperBowl". I'm counting down the hours now until Red Carpet time! Have fun!

Joanne Kennedy said...

Hey lady, didn't I see you out there with the crazy people? LOL

It was fun. I am so happy you came down. Only wish we had more time together. I still think you should move out here.

We must plan another get together. I can come up there or you can come back down here.

Hope your drive home is a save one.

Glad to see your safely back home from your road trip. Now that you've got road miles logged in you can take a stretch of highway out here.
