only in hollywood: oscar night

photo by: David Jones

Turn on the spotlights, roll out the red carpet…the Academy Awards only take place in Hollywood.

Sunday night the most coveted trophies in town will be awarded for the 83rd time. What started as a small affair in 1929—a banquet at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel—has become one of the most watched events in the world. That year about 275 guests paid $5.00 to attend—but this year approximately 40 million in over 200 countries are expected to tune in to the broadcast.

Congratulations and good luck to all of the nominees!

Thanks to whitney, west hollywood sales, for this window display.
