I meet such exciting people during my interviews along the red carpet.
Members of the cast of the “Jersey Boys” show (Paris) discussed the Academy Awards. The men can feel the emotions of waiting to see the winners as the “Jersey Boys” won their own awards.
John Lloyd Young explained, “Jersey Boys” has won awards since our opening in 2008 and we are still going strong as the longest running Broadway musical in Las Vegas history.”
Why has the show been such a success? He answered, “It is a musical for people that are not familiar with Broadway musicals. “Jersey Boys” spans so many different audiences. You can be a person who loves musicals and appreciates it for the Broadway part of it. there is something for everybody.
My favorite film is “Birdman” it will have people talking for years. I’m a fan of Julianne Moore and think her work is beautiful.”
My next celebrity interview, Comedian Lenny Windsor, known in Las Vegas and London, Lenny offers humor with a British touch. He writes for the Benny Hill show. Lenny has not seen any movies, because of his trips from Las Vegas to London for engagements on stage and TV. He hopes the airlines will play some of the Academy Award winning films on his flights.
For the sixth year, Variety the Children’s Charity hosted “Variety Salutes Hollywood”, the best Oscar viewing party in Las Vegas and I think in the United States.
The public is invited to the festivities for this great cause. It is a chance to meet celebrities, walk the red carpet and join the Academy Award’s viewing party in the Penthouse Suite with their buffet catered by the Palm Hotel’s famous Alize restaurant at the top of the Palm Hotel.
Las Vegas is affiliated with the Academy Awards in Hollywood, we have a red carpet Las Vegas-style.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is building the world’s leading movie museum in the heart of Los Angeles. Located in the historic Wilshire May Company building on the campus of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the six stories Academy Museum was green lighted by the Academy’s Board of Governors in October 2012 (See photo in article).
