SHOW BITS: Waltz faces a bizarre moment

It was a new vantage point for him after working two Oscar shows filming shout-outs to troops overseas.

His boss, Maj. John Reynolds, relocated from a posting in Fort Leavenworth, Kan., a few months before last year’s show and was hoping for a glimpse of Denzel Washington, Ben Affleck and Lawrence.

“I never thought I would be this close to the red carpet,” said Reynolds, who had a front row seat where the stars entered the Dolby Theatre.

Talens, who noted the Oscars’ longtime support of the troops, said, “I’m very happy the academy supports the military and allows us to see the glitz and glamour.”

TAKE TWO FOR OSCAR RESULTS

Sometimes in Hollywood it takes more than one try to get the perfect shot.

On Sunday afternoon, that was the case for the accountants bringing in the Oscar ballot results.

The men walked calmly down the red carpet clutching briefcases as a film crew recorded their every move. But before they could enter the Dolby Theatre, they had to repeat the last leg of their walk.

This time fans in the bleachers cheered. The cameras rolled and everyone was satisfied.

Cut. The men walked into the theater.

It’s Hollywood.
