The hustle and bustle of the red carpet in full swing. What a great view! Thanks to the perspective of this shot, we get to drink in the whole arrivals experience. The press, the nominees, the fans, the publicists steering their clients in the right direction, moving the line along. It sums up the excitement and feel of the show that shuts down Hollywood Blvd.
She was massively criticized for being fake, putting on a show and being all together just too perfect. This photo proves her critics wrong! Anne Hathaway shows her true personality, lets loose for a few moments, in a very controlled atmosphere where all eyes are upon the front runner for best supporting actress.
Always have time for your fans. It's not an angle that we often see captured. Who knew that the A-listers veered off the beaten track and greeted their fans who follow and support them, well we do now!
Through their eyes. We see their dresses, their hair, the couples, all smiling and waving... but to who? Well, a sea of camera lenses. Its essential for each attendee to make they sure to catch every camera, giving them their best smile, best angle of the dress all while they are faced with what can be this intimidating view. With just a simple step to the side, the roaming photographer gives away a few secrets to what goes on behind the scenes.
The photographer's pit - or at least one of them! The lucky outlets that are given the opportunity to cover the red carpet, as part of a camera crew, tv show, publication or photo agency, are placed along the edge of the sprawling carpet with each one of them trying to get THAT shot. With hundreds looking through their lenses and seeing the same as the person next to them, they turn to the speed of their editors to process quickly.
Who falls this gracefully? When Jennifer Lawrence stumbles on the steps up to collect her best actress award, every eye in the house was on her - as were the house photographers. A frame that captured her emotion, her dress, her body language perfectly. A time she may want to forget, but for onlookers, it was a moment that will go down in the records.
Whoops. When taking the stage in the press room a smart mouthed photog jokes to her not to trip this time. Quick witted Lawrence reacts accordingly. But the look of regret on her face was a picture...literally see next shot.
She may have been the lady of the evening, but even young Jennifer Lawrence lets her emotions get ahead of her! Begging them to delete the image after reality sank in, she realized the power of the media and that with a room full of professional photographers it wouldn't take long for this to circulate!
After taking on the red carpet, even if they win....its not over yet! They have the press room to face. Together with their new best friend Oscar, they have more flash bulbs to contend with.
