I get invited to a lot of social events as a journalist / publicist, but there is nothing quite like the Oscars. Excitement is in the air, everyone is full of wonder, looking forward to this fairytale-like evening with its never ending magic. The unexpected always happens just to keep things fresh year after year ( just likeU2 performing live on stage.) The 86th Oscars was really by far one of the best ever produced in Hollywood.
Commentary by Alex Farba Deleon For <filmfestivals.com>
Watching the Oscar results on television at the Grand Budapest Hotel Marriott the best coverage was offered not by CNN or BBC but by alternate channel SkyNews.
The hot film news from Hollywood was up against other heavy stories, the crisis in Ukraine and another Oscar -- Pretorius the legless olympic athlete on trial for spousecide in South Africa. All of which made it seem somewhat less important in the overall scheme o...

This Awards Season was by all accounts one of the nastiest in Oscar history, not just the Woody Allen takedown but also in general campaigning with one song nominated, then disqualified, and the vitriol against a few leading ladies. Julia Roberts took the worst hits, not just in her personal life tragedy but in a voter backlash as revealed to The Hollywood Reporter with one anonymous AMPAS member's ballot being made public, The voter d...
