I love the Oscars®. Ever since I was a young child, my family always made it a priority to watch the red carpet, talk about the dresses, create a ballot to see who we think would win and had “picky” foods as my mom calls them — finger foods or substantial hors d’oeuvres as they are known to the rest of the world — and Martinelli sparkling cider!
This year I have seen all of the movies that are up for major awards. My childhood memories of watching with my parents are so vivid, and now I can’t wait to watch it at home with my kids. They really, enjoyed the Grammys this year as they clapped and cheered while the awards were presented. I love that I can enhance my experience of this year’s Oscars® with the Backstage Pass App ready on my phone or my iPad to see what is going on behind the scenes. I can also have my ballot ready to compare my favorites and predictions with the actual awards!
