Just because we’re still wearing winter coats and have to wake up at 6:30am for work the next day doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate a night of Academy Awards on the red carpet. Dig out those old prom gowns, or vintage dresses our moms wore in the ’70s, lay out a carpet of red bulletin board paper from the teacher’s store and you’re set to go. I would argue that although watching the Oscars on TV won’t ever come close to actually being there, in some ways it’s better – you can comment as loudly as you please just what you think of so-and-so’s ridiculous gown from the comfort of your couch, surrounded by a spread of delicious hors d’oeuvres. And the view is likely better than where I’d be sitting if I ever were in the audience (which would be the very last row). I may choose the sofa any day.
