Oscars Updates

By February 21, 2009Nat-news

Natalie will be attending the Oscars this Sunday, but according to this article, she might not be walking the red carpet.

The Academy has done a splendid, if pointless, job of hiding who is going to present the Oscars. For years, the list was announced in advance. This year — no! — and presenters have even been asked to skip the red carpet. They are supposed to sneak into the Kodak by a private entrance.

Bummer.

    I don’t get it. Aren’t many of the presenters usually up for Oscars themselves? NP presented when she was nominated.

    Denying the fans another chance to see their favorite stars seems like a strange thing to do since they are expecting a lower than normal viewership this year.

    On the last part, I was thinking exactly the same thing. :\

    Hmmm… maybe the crisis is so bad that they have to diminish expenses, like in security, and thus they choosed to have less people to protect?;)

    Or, more seriously, since there is a crisis, they wanted to show a less expensive ceremony, in order to avoid critics about wasting money in bad times.

    That is not necessarily the case actually.Apparently,Robert Pattinson is probably going to present an award as well and someone on his IMDb board posted a link to an online article related to the Oscars of course,featuring an interview with two of the producers of the live telecast (Laurence Mark & Bill Condon)and according to them,some of the presenters will definitely be striding along the red carpet.What I’m trying to say is,Natalie could be one of them for all we know.Proof?

    Q:Is it true presenters won’t walk the red carpet?

    Mark: Of course, there will be some presenters on the red carpet, for heaven’s sake. But there will be some surprises, some presenters who won’t be on the red carpet. But it’s not like there’s some edict going on here.

    I’m glad she’s not doing it. that’s very classy move, not too overexposed.
    She has no movie in Oscar,
    she’s just attending like other actors.

    I’m gonna watch Red Carpet arrivals and Oscar Ceremony, but I’m just hoping that Natalie will be on red too. Just can’t wait!
