What you didn’t see on TV during the Oscars
Question of the Day
7:26 p.m. _ It’s not exactly “At The Movies,” but Oscar show producer Brian Grazer has just gotten two thumbs up from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on how the program is going so far. “It’s really, really good,” Jolie tells him backstage.
8 p.m. _ Composer Ludovic Bource, winner of the Oscar for “The Artist,’ leans over the orchestra pit to give a rousing cheer to his fellow musicians during a commercial break.
8:01 p.m. _ James Earl Jones, posing for photos backstage with his Governor’s Award for lifetime achievement, pauses to ask a worker, “Whose name is on this?” “Yours,” he is told. “My name is on it,” a beaming Jones tells Oprah Winfrey when she shows up to collect her own Governor’s Award.
8:29 p.m. _ She has already won two, but Meryl Streep doesn’t seem to be expecting this Oscar for “The Iron Lady.” “I can’t believe it,” she says as she stops in the wings just offstage after accepting the award. “Want to take a minute? Let’s take a minute,” says presenter Colin Firth, leading her to a little nook just off camera. “This is just insane,” she says.
8:37 p.m. _ No stage fright for Uggie. When “The Artist” won the Oscar for best picture the little Jack Russell terrier that had nearly upstaged Oscar winner Jean Dujardin in the movie was right there to share in the glory. “I just said, `Uggie’s coming out stage right,” stage manager Dency Nelson says with a smile. And Uggie did.
8:40 p.m. _ It’s a celebrity traffic jam as Steven Spielberg tries to maneuver around Zach Galifianakis, only to find “The Hangover” star has gotten stuck behind Octavia Spencer, who has stopped to let “The Help” co-star Emma Stone pat her new Oscar on its shiny gold head. Wait, Demian Bichir has found a way around the crowd. He cuts down another aisle and out the door. Can he duplicate that move on the freeway?
8:43 p.m. _ The Hollywood & Highland Center is all but empty now save for stragglers Kenneth Branaugh and Wendi McLendon-Covey. The sounds of workers breaking down the stage are about all that’s left behind.
