Did you know that comedians stay behind the scenes to act fast if any blunder happens?
When we watch an award like the Oscar on TV, you can not imagine everything going on behind the scenes, right? The truth is that the most important night for the movie universe is full of surprises and needs many schemes to be successful. Here, we reveal some secrets about the organization of the ceremony!
1. VIP Corridors
If you ever get an invitation to attend the Oscars live, do not get too worked up thinking you’re going to take selfies with every celebrity. There are two red carpets in the event, one for the celebrities, and the other for the hovel ~. The two areas are separated by velvet strings, and while the celebs are full of cameras and reporters, the non-celebrities are full of security guards, who are keeping an eye on people trying to grab their idols.
2. No food
Remember when, in 2014, the night’s host, Ellen DeGeneres , had pizza distributed to the crowd and actors like Meryl Streep and Brad Pitt ran to get a piece? Well, it turns out that was an exception, because in general, the Oscar ceremony has no food! The rule was probably designed to avoid accidents with dresses or that infamous blue whale in the tooth. If they want to eat, the guests must arrive well before the event, when they are served only a few ~ small dishes ~. After that, food is only found at a post-ceremony dinner that takes place at Governors Ball. The problem is the list of guests for this dinner is megavip and not all famous are called, so we often see clicks of our idols indulging in fast foods even after the event.
3. Can or not drink?
There is a rumor that during the Oscar, celebrities can not drink alcohol, but that’s a lie! What happens is that, unlike what happens at the Golden Globes , for example, where the actors sit at tables being served by waiters all the time, at the Oscars the bar is outside the theater. So anyone who wants a champagne to celebrate needs to get up and walk to the Dolby Theater lobby, running the chance to miss the announcement of some major category.
4. There are people to fill seats
You may notice: you will never see empty seats at awards such as the Oscars. This is because the event has several extras dressed in gala clothes that occupy empty seats when some guest decides to go to the bathroom or to the bar, for example. “How do I apply for a job?” You ask. Well, these extras are usually family members or friends of the Academy staff. Ah …
5. Pretentious to err
Remember last year, when the prize for Best Picture was delivered to La La Land , and in fact, the winner was Moonlight ? As soon as the confusion happened, host Jimmy Kimmel took the stage and made a joke to relax and solve the problem soon. But contrary to what many people think, his response was not so spontaneous. There is a team of writers and comedians behind the scenes, ready to think of the perfect response that presenters should give if something goes out of control. WHAT ?! Yeah. In general, the presenters also receive advice from the organizing team on how to behave in case any blunder happens.
6. Crazy in the wings
It happened: you won the Oscar for Best Actress. You get up in your baptismal dress, take the figurine in your hand, make an exciting speech, and then the chaos begins. If you think the celebs have a chance to cry and celebrate being prized when they leave the stage, you’re very much mistaken! As they disappear from the video cameras, the winners are taken to a room to take pictures of the prize and then have to answer questions from journalists at a small press conference. To try to get organized in the business, reporters are given numbers to ask their questions. Many celebrities play as they feel they are being auctioned at this time – and turn around, ask the guys to wait a little bit so they can see on TV who was the winner of the other category being advertised.
So, who do you think drives Oscar this year?
