Meeting Oscar

Billy Vasquez shot this video of regular folks visiting the Academy's "Meet the Oscar" display on Level 3 of the Hollywood & Highland central courtyard last week. It was open to the public, who lined up to get a chance to pose with a real Oscar. It's charming—and revealing of how powerful this icon really is.

It didn't take long for the Academy to crack down on the YouTube clips of the Oscarcast. That's because they want their own trafffic on Oscar.com. UPDATE: Nora's watching Ellen on Oscar night at YouTube right now.
