Red carpet, ceremony and 2012 Oscar Winners
The pre-Oscar ceremony began nearly an hour before seeing a move from side to side and very little applause for the "second sons artists" and other artists little known cast, for the red carpet at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles. So much so little known that a passenger had to wear a placard showing it to the print media and television to which they are aware of who were doing a slightly perched and a brief appearance on stage.
Occasionally the odd euphoric applause for watching, alone or with a partner, one of the nominated artists, or just some of the better known of the big screen. One of the best moments came when the red walkway known, stars and the nominees for the statuette in a category given its appearance in the eyes of half the world, television cameras and hundreds of camera flashes firing right and left against the silhouettes posing some more style and grace that seemed to writhe around others themselves.
They made their appearance, the always elegant George Clooney, an Oscar nominee for "The Descendants" which was accompanied by actress Stacy Keibler. Octavia Spencer, winner for Best Supporting Actress, which became quite excited as if she had been given the award. Emma Stone, who with her dress more like a Christmas present which could hardly have movement but with a smile on his face. A with great cleavage Jennifer Lopez that was the delight of many men and, above all, a presenter on ABC and did not know exactly where you placed the eyes of the actress and singer.
The inseparable couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, for some, to the delight of the respectable though she seemed more concerned with teaching his white right leg, look to the horizon, looking lost and embrace the more far better to be your partner for want to work out well on a photo. Meryl Streep, was presented at the gala with an elegant gold dress realizing that she could be the new winner of the Oscar for Best Actress, her third statuette in his career, and yes it would be for her. Posing with elegance and unforgettable smile that did not lose any time or when she received the award on stage at the Kodak Theatre.
But when the evening star Hollywood evening was when, despite being different interviewing stars of film, cameras and the eyes went to the British actor Sacha Baron Cohen who finished presenting General Aladeen dress to promote his new movie "The Dictator" either accompanied by two female soldiers and the supposed ashes of the late North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-il, who spread the red carpet while the security was somewhat slow to let non-stop.
With regard to the ceremony, very little of improvisation, a hyphen followed perfectly, just enough to cause occasional laughter and little more to tell in a retransmission quite sober and increasingly sleepy. Billy Crystal attempt to make a success of a show in which eight years ago that it was master of ceremonies.
An endearing moment of the night featured a Uggie, the dog from "The Artist", it does finally hit the stage with the rest of his companions and took the special thanks from the director, Michel Hazanavicius. "I do not know if I mean when I say it, but thanks", the Oscar winner for Best Director.
There was also a time of remembrance for those who left us all this year with the traditional In Memoriam video, the audio version of "What a Wonderful World" played masterfully by the American singer and bassist of Grammy Award winning jazz Artist of the Year 2011, Esperanza Spalding.
The apparitions most excel in this video were those of Steve Jobs, co-founder of Pixar, and the recently deceased Whitney Houston and Liz Taylor, as expected, ended the video and took one of the biggest ovations of the night.
