Oscar almost ready for his closeup

Preparations still being made for kudocast

Despite the mudslinging, IATSE protests, after-party talk, and inevitably misguided handicapping of the Oscar race, preparations are still being made to the Kodak Theater in anticipation of one of the biggest nights in showbiz.

Traffic has been halted anywhere near the complex, and the security at the event could probably topple the government of a small country. But at last, the kudocast returns to its Hollywood roots in a new venue only a block from the Roosevelt Hotel where the golden statue was introduced to the world. The towering structure seems to have created a buzz around town, which was exactly what Tinseltown strived for in its efforts to bring back the glory days.
