#041 - It's Oscar time!



[Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly]

Right now, the 84th Academy Awards are in Hollywood! And because I'm so in love with "the good old times" here's some amazing old memories from the Oscars, enjoy! : --- )

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Parhaimmillaan Hollywoodissa ollaan juhlatunnelmissa sillä on aika palkita 84. kerran Oscar-palkinnot! Kellokin on jo hävettävän palion mutta onneksi huomenna starttaavan itsenäisen oppimisen viikon tienoilta (meillä korkeakouluopiskelijoilla kun ei kuulemma lomia ole ;)) ei tarvitse heti aamusta olla skarppina luennoilla!  
Itseni tienoilta matkustelenkin jo Höyhensaarille sillä tyydyn katsomaan Oscar-gaalaa uusintanakin mutta arvelisin, että jotkut ovat sen verran juhlahumussa tällä hetkellä kyseisen gaalan tietämiltä, ettei sellaanen tulisi kuuloonkaan, joten tyydynkin hyvien öiden toivottamisen sijaan toivottamahan pelekät ädjööt sinne ruudun toisellekin puolelle! : --- )

Ja koska mä olen äärimmäisen rakastunut "vanhoihin hyviin aikoihin"
niin päätin avartaa teille hieman Oscareiden historiaa upeiden kuvien muodossa -älkääkä missatko tuota vanhaa filmipätkääkään lopussa! : --- )
