Day Two: #31DaysOfOscar Blogathon

I’m happy to say that we approach the halfway mark of this year’s 31 Days of Oscar Blogathon without incident or controversy. As is the case with my co-hosts, I will not be hosting any posts during commercials today, my day to host this year’s event. To put you at ease here is a 1957 Oldsmobile commercial, which aired during the Academy Awards ceremony that year. I will watch it with you thereby pausing my hosting duties.

Welcome back. Before we get to today’s list of entries, you might want to visit the Announcement post, which includes the entire participant roster. Also, be sure to visit Kellee at Outspoken & Freckled and the Day One submissions. Terrific stuff there. Otherwise, I’m getting to the main course of this entry, the tributes to the movies and the people who have had relationships with Oscar…or should have had. Enjoy!

Those are today’s enjoyable entries. Paula will host the third and final day tomorrow at her Cinema Club leaving you free to enjoy the 91st installment of the Oscars on ABC. I also highly recommend you carve out as much time as you can to enjoy the final days of TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar marathon.

I tip my hat to my fabulous co-hosts, Kellee and Paula, thank YOU for stopping in for a visit and all of the fantastic bloggers who are participating in this year’s event! As always I learn and love classic film through your eyes as much as through mine.

1963 Oscars – Gregory Peck, Sophia Loren, Joan Crawford, and Maximilian Schell stand backstage at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, Los Angeles. Joanie looks very comfortable holding someone else’s Oscar, doesn’t she?
