Who had fun at the 2012 Oscars?
Ellie Kemper, William Joyce, Brandon Oldenburg and Wendi McLendon-Covey did. Joyce and Oldenburg won the prize for best animated short for their film The Fantastic Flying Books of Dr. Morris Lessmore.
Meryl Streep had fun. She said of her win, “I thought I was so old and jaded, but it was just thrilling. It’s like I was a kid again.”
Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck sets up Oscar-shaped food in a tent just outside the Academy Awards. (Why is he wearing 3D glasses?)
Kirk Douglas won an honorary Oscar in 1996 (for “50 years as a creative and moral force in the motion picture community”). Michael Douglas has twice won Oscars: once in 1976 as a producer of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and once as best actor for the 1987 film Wall Street.
