And the Oscar Goes to

Holy Canoli

One of many freak-out-while-holding-a-golden-man poses

So my Art Director partner and I ventured to the Art Institute today to get our hands on Oscar. It paid off. I must say, the statue was a bit awkward to hold, not what I was expecting. And the weight! Those winners aren’t lying when they say they didn’t think it was going to heavy. I can’t wait to win one for screenwriting in the near future.

The Oscar Roadtrip is still making stops (in fact, I think it’s due in St. Louis relatively soon). You can follow them on Twitter for stop updates or on their website. It wasn’t the event site I thought it was going to be, so it doesn’t take all that much time. Note: Can’t you tell someone in marketing took this photo of me, call to action perfectly displayed…


Red Carpet or Bust


It’s award shows season, which is my next favorite season to college basketball season. Right alongside that actual season called Fall.

The Oscars don’t have too do much to get me jazzed for the awards night. Which is why I’m so over the moon about their latest campaign “Oscar RoadTrip.”

That’s right, Oscar is going on a nationwide tour with two reporters capturing videos and photos along the way. They’ve listed cities the statue will make an appearance, then turn to the public to determine where in town Oscar must stop.

It’s genius. And I for one, cannot wait for February 11. Time to start prepping that acceptance speech for screenwriting. And here’s to hoping they have a mixed CD with some stellar soundtracks (looking at you Beasts of the Southern Wild).
