Behind the Red Carpet Campaign

The crowd inside Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater on January 9 is awaiting what is being billed as “An Evening With Jeff Bridges.” And officially, that’s how things are going to unfold: A brief set of highlights from the actor’s 40-year career will unspool, after which Bridges will take the stage for a Q&A, to be followed by a screening of his 1971 breakthrough, The Last Picture Show.

It’s all been skillfully designed to permit film buffs to pretend that they are not participating in an Oscar campaign. The only problem is, nobody’s buying it, least of all the audience, which fills the air with gossip about the Academy Awards chances of Bridges’s new film, Crazy Heart.

With now 10 films competing for Best Picture, everyone needs to step up their game. Personally, I do not which movie I will be cheering on to win the golden little man. I haven’t seen all the movies, but the ones that I have, that do stand out are Precious, The Hurt Locker and Inglorious Basterds.

Haven’t put much thought into any actors yet. I will once the Academy Awards airs.

Shocking news of British fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s death rocked the fashion world today. He was found in his home and it is rumored he committed suicide, but this is just speculation. He would have turned 41 next month. Very very sad and tragic.  May he rest in peace.

From Alexander McQueen’s website:

“On behalf of Lee McQueen’s family, Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen brand has been found dead at his home. At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with Lee’s family.

Lee’s family has asked for privacy in order to come to terms with this terrible news and we hope the media will respect this.”
