AHHHHH! I just got home from the Oscars Red Carpet Experience. My brain is reeling from all the excitement and fun. I just want to share the highlights because I know you have to get back to work/school/your own life…
I started early in the morning – the red carpet opens around 2pm. But because of security and logistics people with tickets to the red carpet bleachers had to be there around 10:30am! I started my day with a short run and then rushed out the door to get to LA in time.
I got the golden ticket! The Academy had a strict rule against showing the ID badges so all I can show you this is crumpled up envelope. #Classy
Since we were there so early Maybelline and People magazine had some fun stuff to do while we waited. There was a long line for the make-up and nails so I ended up getting out of line to hang out with people.
I did get in on the fun selfie station. Check out RunEatRepeat on Instagram here for the action version!
I was invited to the Red Carpet bleachers by United. There were four other bloggers that joined the party – travel bloggers and one fashion blogger.
(I tagged them in this Instagram photo to follow.)
When we arrived we got a great gift bag full of snacks and other fun goodies.
Everyone’s starving themselves to get red carpet ready and I’m over here crunching on chips…
Lunch! My third favorite meal of the day.
Finally there was some action on the red carpet so we headed to our seats! First things first – the TV hosts arriving.
That Michael guy from Kelly & Michael.
Wolfgang Puck’s amazing food spread. He was interviewed as much as the actors and actresses!
Felicity Jones – Best Actress Nominee
It was raining! It never rains here, what the heck?! Luckily there were tents up. But, I had a great seat in the front, on the end – that also meant I got wet. (Luckily I’m not made of sugar, I just eat it non-stop.)
Julianne Moore. She won Best Actress!
Anna Farris and Chris Pratt
Keira Knightley. Pregnant and gorgeous.
Bradley Cooper. Dream boat.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigan. Legend’s Oscar acceptance speech was great too! Check out his performance with Common here.
The red carpet story you’re not going to hear anywhere else…
Oprah stepped on Lady Gaga’s dress and she turned around to be like ‘WTF’ but then saw it was Queen Oprah and was more like ‘sorry my dress got in your way’…
Lady Gaga looked awesome! Some critics are saying her performance was the best of her career. Check out Lady Gaga’s Oscar performance here.
And finally, my spirit animal… Jennifer Lopez.
The entire day was amazing!
So much fun!! I don’t even care that it was a little drizzly – I was walking on sunshine.
And just like that I’m headed back to the real world… this was my view walking away. Finally I’d like to just thank myself for not falling on the slippery sidewalk – there were two close calls!
