Calvin Klein and McCartney shined as designers just as bright as Leonard DiCaprio and Kate Winslet at this years Oscars. The Oscar fashion gets so much more attention in the aftermath verses the actual winning movies. Sure I'll be paying to see 'Spotlight' this weekend as the Cinema will be highly attended thanks to this award show that got its "lowest ratings ever." Don't they say that after every award show except the Grammy's?
Many of Hollywoods elite are taking a break from the diets and exercise as you read this. The Oscars offered them parties, trophies, photo opportunities and Wolfgang Puck's famous food. Publicists were harried, personal assistants crazed and photographers were in their glory. The build up to the Oscars includes not only the making of the movies that are up for top honors, but the regimen many stars go through to get ready for this night. Stylists, designers, estheticians, nutritionist, make up artists, and hair dressers are all in high demand, working non stop to make sure their clients 'show well.'
This wasn't a good year for going out to the movies for me. Thank you Netflix. I saw two of the movies nominated for best picture; usually I don't seen any. It's hard for a working mom to get out to the movies, especially with her husband. The cost of the movie alone is a deterrent, add in a babysitter (if she can secure one) and you've easily got a fifty dollar plus night out; dinner is usually optional. Seeing a movie with a girlfriend happens once in a while,and it's usually to see a great chick flick. Taking kids to the movies is the easiest, yet least adult option. Even if cost is not part of the equation the time involved really adds up, in a good way.
If given the choice, going out to eat, a savory adult meal could easily come before a movie. Unless your choosing to dine while watching at movie theaters that are serving food past popcorn and Sno-caps. This option meets mixed reviews. I've found the food to be really good at these CineDine's, there's a service charge just for entering the theater, add on the price of the meal and it's a one stop shop for a night out.. Maybe theater's should go the route of IKEA and offer babysitting.
