It was a typical beautiful, sunny Sunday afternoon in March when I was driving down Sunset Boulevard to partake in some traditionally American unhealthy behavior—In-N-Out Burger. I was craving “animal style” French fries with the obligatory cheese and onions. Traffic is always awful in Los Angeles, but it was extraordinarily bad that afternoon, and all the bars and restaurants were packed with people. Football season was over. The Lakers weren’t playing. What had this city in a complete frenzy? If you’re a film fanatic, then of course you know that it was awards season, and the Academy Awards, aka “The Oscars,” were taking place later that afternoon at the Dolby Theatre.
