"Off the Record, On the QT, and Very Hush-Hush."*
Every year the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences holds the ceremony known as the Academy Awards. Every year the Academy designs a poster to commemorate this event. If you are a movie quote freak, this year's poster is something you might want to purchase. I didn't know until this year that it was possible to buy these online, but it is.
Next Sunday I'll be throwing a party to celebrate the 79th Academy Awards, despite the fact that I've only seen one of the movies nominated. (BTW, Little Miss Sunshine is fantastic - go see it if you haven't.) Despite the hype, the gossip, the migraine inducing traffic jams and the boring acceptance speeches, the Oscars remind us of what is unique about this city; how we got started, what put us on the map. In many ways this is still a company town. I think it always will be. And I like that about Los Angeles.
Oh, and if you're wondering about the source of the quote above, here it is.
