I love awards shows. I don't know why exactly. But I love seeing all the glitz and glamour, I like catching up on music or movies or whatever the award show is covering. You can find out a lot about who's in and who's looking good, and who's not--which I'm sure is of no concern to most people. But I find it interesting in a frivolous way. The Academy Awards is this next Sunday. BTW I watched the Golden Globes in Panama and it was crazy. The show was in English but sometimes the Panamanian hosts would start talking in Spanish so there was a lot of confusion for me as to what was going on.http://www.vanityfair.com/online/oscars/2013/02/oscar-winner...The Maker of All Those Oscar Envelopes Starlets Can Never Open: “We Re-Engineered Them to Make Them Dummy-Proof”<snip>On Oscar Sunday, you will see 24 handcrafted iterations of Marc’s masterpiece—the Mona Lisa of letterhead—every time a teleprompter-dazzled presenter says, “And the winner is,” and then fumbles to open his envelope. (Actually, when we asked Marc about starlets’ persistent inability to crack the envelope in one smooth, dramatic gesture, he became even more serious. “Hopefully that’s [just] been the perception,” he corrected. “Ours have not been. We re-engineered [them] to make it dummy-proof. Like any great suit, we took it out a little in the seam, so that way it wasn’t that snug.”
