From The Signal Premiere to the Oscars
Whew...I'm dog tired yo.
I left The Signal premiere party at around 2am to run home, do laundry, pack and hop in a cab at 5:40 to catch my plane to LA.
And of course, this is the first year that we end up staying late due to technical difficulties....so after not sleeping last night...it's 10:36pm Atlanta time and I'm about to fall out.
For those of you who don't know, I work on the Academy Awards every year. That sounds more glamorous than it is really. I sit in a trailer in a parking lot behind the Kodak Theater.
I work for TNT Latin America on a one hour live from the Red Carpet Pre-Show. Kinda like ABC's pre-show basically, but mine is international only. I've done this for around 9 years I think and it's a blast to see behind the scenes of the Awards.
Back in the day, you know, the day before Sept. 11th, we could sit in the theater and watch rehearsals. That was awesome, to see hung over celebs trying to read the prompter and not pass out was always worth checking out.
But of course terrorists hate Hollywood's freedoms, so no more access for me. Damn them.
