My youngest daughter, Emilie (pictured below), is at the Academy Awards program in Los Angeles as I write this. She is the personal assistant to a Hollywood Celebrity who is a member of the Academy and as such she attended.
The celebrity lives down the street from us, so as a careful father, that criteria makes me a little more comfortable with the situation.
Emilie wore this dress (she'd be offended if I called it an 'outfit'). At the moment she's at Elton John's private after party. I spoke to her on the telephone a few minutes ago and Emilie said she's having a great time hob-nobbing with the great and near great (and those who think they're great).
My choice for best picture: HURT LOCKER, won. Beyond that, I didn't care much and I didn't see the Academy Award show since I was out working.
