Real People Meeting Oscar

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Last week all you had to do was stroll down to Hollywood & Highland or take the subway there, then stand in line for a short while and you'd get to hold a real Oscar trophy. Every day we kept forgetting to mention it and then kicked ourselves when it was over.

And now The Hollywood Reporter's Risky Biz blog has posted video of regular people holding the award and mugging for the cameras.

Consider this the cleansing of your palette after the long stretch that was awards season.
