Celebrity Sightings Tips (3)

Get a picture with a Celebrity/Movie Star! Ha-ha!

When around Beverly Hills, be on the lookout for stars/celebrities who are having photoshoots!

One day, we were strolling around and saw a photographer intent on taking pictures of a lady in a red car – it was Wynonna Judd, an American country singer whose self-titled solo debut album released in 1991 produced three straight Number One singles and was certified 5× Multi-Platinum in the United States for sales of five million copies! Might be unknown outside USA, but she is a celebrity here so when I saw her standing for a break, I asked if we could pose with her!

Don't be shy because sometimes they appreciate a fan going up to them...unless they're having a private moment of course. But this was out in the open air, so I went ahead...

My daughter was sleeping on the stroller, so I brought her twin brother to Wynonna who was a little finicky at the time. As I was handing my son to her, she said with a little concern, “I don’t do crying babies…” And so I said, “Okay, I’ll just carry him, Wynonna.” And that’s why I am in the photo as well, hehehe…

Too bad her beauteous sister Ashley and beautiful Mom "Naomi Judd" weren't there...

Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences

Founded on May 11, 1927 in California, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) is a professional honorary organization dedicated to the advancement of the arts and sciences of motion pictures.

The Academy is composed of over 6,000 motion picture professionals. While the great majority of its members are based in the United States, membership is open to qualified filmmakers around the world. As of 2004, the Academy roster included theatrical filmmakers from 36 countries.

The Academy used to have only one main building, the one on Wilshire. But in 1991, the Academy moved part of their operations (and treasures) into a second building on La Cienega - the Academy Center for Motion Picture Study. The Center is housed in a wonderful old structure resembling a Spanish Mission, which they found in disrepair and restored to its former glory.

The original Wilshire Boulevard office is also the place where the Oscar nominations are announced each February, at a news conference which always draws international media coverage. This is also the place where the stars pick up their actual Oscar awards (after the statuettes have been engraved).

The original Wilshire headquarters no longer has a giant Oscar statue outside (the gold figure now stands inside, near the elevator). Most of the building's six floors are now dedicated strictly to business.

However, on the 4th floor, you will find a small gallery which is open to the public, filled with exhibits related to the movie industry. To reach this modest exhibit hall, you must first walk through the barren lobby, sign-in with a guard at the front desk, then ride the elevator up to the 4th floor. I suggest you phone first to inquire about what exhibits are currently running or what events are planned. Ticket prices to screenings are usually $5 to $7. For screening times, call (310) 247-3600.

Sid Ganis is currently president of the Academy.

Behind the scenes at the Academy Awards

All Access at the Academy Awards
January 13 - April 16, 2006

For the last five years, well-known Los Angeles based photographer Art Streiber has had something that most of us can only dream about: an "All Access" pass at the Academy Awards. Streiber's camera has captured moments that never appear on television, from the epic undertaking that is the building of the bleachers and the delivery of the giant Oscars on Hollywood Boulevard, to those first moments alone together (often in an elevator or a corridor backstage) between an Oscar winner and his or her statuette. 120 stunning color photographs will be on display from each of the last five Oscar ceremonies. The imagery includes solitary backstage moments with the various hosts (Steve Martin, Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Crystal, Chris Rock), rehearsals by musical performers (Bj?rk, Sting, Paul Simon, dancers and stars of Chicago), and presenters (Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz and Robin Williams among them). Oscar winners photographed in the wings include Adrien Brody, Nicole Kidman, Morgan Freeman, Hilary Swank, Peter O?Toole, Denzel Washington, Halle Berry, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Julia Roberts, Robert Redford, Charlize Theron, Jamie Foxx, Tim Robbins, Ren?e Zellweger, Sean Penn and Clint Eastwood. Visit the Academy?s Grand Lobby Gallery to see what you?ve been missing. This exhibit will be on display Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 am to 5 pm and weekends from noon to 6 pm (from January 13 to April 16, 2006). Admission is free. For more information, call the Academy at 310-247-3600
