Oscars Watch 2011: Rolling Out the Red Carpet

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Preparations for the 83rd annual Academy Awards continue in Los Angeles this morning. How often do you hear "They're rolling out the red carpet" and that's what's really happening? Well, today, that's exactly what is happening. A crew from American Turf and Carpet is setting up the red carpet for the celebs (and their people, and the photographers) to walk all over on Sunday.
