Oscar Watch: This year's set design
Oscar spoiler! Get yer Oscar spoiler here! No, I’m not talking about Philip Seymour Hoffman’s virtual lock on Best Actor (sorry, Heath!), and alas, I’m not privy to any of Jon Stewart’s planned punch lines either. But we do have a sneak peak at what the stage will look like at the Kodak Theatre come March 5. Designer Roy Christopher calls it ”a no-holds-barred return to classic Hollywood glamour, paying homage to old movie theaters,” complete with a 65-foot-long ‘Oscar’ marquee, and two 20-foot frosted-glass Oscar statuettes. To our eyes, it also appears to pay homage to cruise ships, Caesar’s Palace, and the card room at our great-aunt’s retirement community, but what do we know?
