And so it begins #Oscars #ERedCarpet

The red carpet didn’t used to be a thing; not for broadcast, anyway.  Back in the “Good Old Days”, the ‘60s, there was a red carpet, the limosines dropping off stars for the ceremony is as old as the Oscars themselves; it barely got coverage before the show itself started (at least that’s my recollection).  Besides, watching black and white footage of colorful gowns was kind of beside the point, anyway.  I think the Red Carpet coverage started with cable; the networks had a world to cover, when E! first started, gaining extra screen time before the ceremony has proven a gold mine.

The E! Entertainment Channel is live-streaming from the #ERedCarpet already.  Right now, they’re going over the nominees in the “major categories” (acting, probably director and best picture and the big six awards of the night).

It was brought to my attention this morning, in today’s paper, that there is movement to insist on more attention to the actress on the Red Carpet, who she is and what she does and is interested in, rather than her designer.

A woman is more than her designer.   Ask intelligent women intelligent questions.
