Question of the Day
Then there were those who pulled out all the stops.
Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter paused on the red carpet to pose for pictures for star-struck fans.
Melissa McCarthy stopped to beam and wave at every section of the bleachers, all but ignoring the professional photographers surrounding her.
Jessica Chastain blew the crowd a kiss.
And Joseph Gordon-Levitt topped it all off with an appreciative bow to his audience.
A FOODIE FEAST FIT FOR A RED CARPET
Even the food gets the red-carpet treatment at the Academy Awards.
Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck rolled a tray out onto the carpet to show off just a few of the goodies that will be served at the annual Governor’s Ball following the show.
Making the scene were baked potatoes with caviar, smoked salmon, chicken pot pie with truffle, Kobe steak, sushi, sashimi and of course Puck’s famous gold-dusted chocolate Oscar statuettes.
“It’s going to be the greatest party ever,” he said.
