We Attended "Live With Kelly's" After The Oscars Show In Hollywood California

Updated on February 2, 2018

Our First Hand Experience at the Academy Awards

The 84th Academy Awards, is "hollywood's biggest night." My sister Paulette and I, were in the midst of this historical event. Live With Kelly's televsion program, allowed us to partake of this special evening. It was exciting to see entertainers arrive on the red carpet as they graciously waved and blew kisses to the crowds. Their incredulous appearances, caused audience members from the stands and behind the fence, to scream with intense joy as well. Various fashions were paraded on the red carpet that brought complete reactions of awe, from their fans. My sister and I, look forward to once again attending this fascinating event. The show is now under the auspices of #Live With Kelly and Ryan - After Oscar Show. It will be held on Monday, March 5th, 2018. I look forward to bringing the experience to my readers.

Numerous intervews were conducted such as #Viola Davis, nominated for Best Actress in her role played in the movie, The Help. She boldly wore her own hair, with a blissfully looking green gown. During an interview, Viola acknowledged how playing this role may have been considered degrading by some but "when you humanize the character, then it is gold." Melissa McCartney of KTLA5, interviewed other nominees such as #George Clooney, who was nominated for Best Actor in his film, The Descendants. The talented #P. Diddy, explained how his award winning documentary entitled, Undeated, was, "Not just about football. It was about life. We should believe in each other and put our egos to the side." Jean DeJardin, for some reason used a translator during the interview with McCartney. Although he did not use one with Kelly and Neil Patrick Harris. The translator expressed how DeJardin felt about The Artist. "It was a little movie and I am surprised to hold this Oscar." He was surprised and never imagined that he would win.

James Earl Jones, received the Honorary Life Achievement Award. He was awarded this for his powerful, seductive voice in The Lion King and #Star Wars, along with numerous other outstanding roles he has played. It was nice to personally meet him at a restaurant near Kodak Theatre the following day called, The Grille Steak, Chops and Seafood. James Earl Jones was a complete gentleman who said, "It was nice to meet you," upon our departure.

Watching the Stars Arrive at Kodak Theatre

It was so exciting to get a glimpse of major actors and actresses arrive on the red carpet. Once all of the stars went into the Kodak Theatre, we walked a couple blocks to our hotel, so that we would not miss the rest of the #Oscars. The Spice Café, at The Best Western Hollywood Plaza Inn, had a nice crowd as we all enjoyed dinner and this awards show. Even though we did not get to be inside the Oscars with the entertainers, it was still an impeccable evening filled with elegant fashions, outlandish responses and numerous surprises. My sister and I unanimously agreed that this event was worth flying from Pennsylvania to California for.

Live With Kelly's After the Oscar's Show was Inspirational

It was with great anticipation on Monday, February 27th, after the Academy Awards, that we would now be able to amicably, participate as audience members for Live With Kelly. At 2:40 a.m., we arrived at the Odin parking lot to load buses that would take hundreds of us to the Kodak Theatre. A few hours later we arrived, as Kelly's staff prepared vigorously for this first time event. It was elegant and exquisitely decorated with heavy draperies, along with gold and wood trimmings. With a demure stature, I looked around the room with the full understanding that just hours ago, the 84th Annual Academy Awards had been held there. An array of actors and actresses had won and loss this coveted award.

The seats were almost filled at 5:28 am as Kelly's picture appeared on the large screens on each side of the room. The crowd burst into an applaud. She graciously bowed and then the picture disappeared. These were obviously the same screens that Oscar winners and losers watched reactions on last night. Finally, around 6:00 a.m., pacific time, Cirque Du Soleil's Eris opened the show with spectacular aerobic twists and bends. Two of the talented group flew into the air as they dangled on ropes. After their performance, Kelly and her co-host, Neil Patrick Harris, came down from the ceiling in two separate swings. She expressed how frightening that was for the both of them. Kelly looked flawless with her jovial personality and down to earth attitude. She then expressed how this was their first show ever at the Kodak Theatre. All of her staff were pretty emotional about this wonderful opportunity.

Academy Award Winners were Interviewed by Kelly

Uggie, the cute and cuddly dog of award winning movie The Artist, was Kelly's first guest. He pretended to be dead when Neil Patrick Harris said, "bang!" After Kelly took Uggie into her arms, she explained that they were in search of a co-host. Is it possible that he was auditioning for the job? Uggie, would make a fine contestant. During the station break while Kelly's makeup artist came out to freshen her up, Kelly screamed to the audience, "Oh my God y'all, we are in the Kodak Theatre." Her excitement of being in this location was quite obvious.

Once the show returned, Kelly and Neil Patrick introduced the talented and beautiful, Academy Award winner, Octavia Spencer, from The Help. She arrived with Oscar in hand as Kelly told her to, "show everybody your fancy prize." Neil and Kelly both agreed that her win, "Was one of the highlights of the night." Octavia blushed as a replay was shown when she accepted the award and gave her speech. She sheepishly laughed when Octavia explained that her head became empty and she forgot to thank so many people. Afterall, the award was unexpected and Octavia was just thankful she had won. The reality is that she did win and now Octavia was on her way to New Orleans to perform in another movie. During the break, Neil Patrick Harris explained how he thought Octavia was, "One of the nicest people." Kelly joked about how she wanted to take all of these sets back home to her show in New York.

The Best Actor #Academy Award winner, Jean DeJardin of The Artist, was interviewed next by Kelly and Neil Patrick. When asked about his background as an actor, DeJardin expressed that he, "played with imaginary friends when I was growing up because I wanted to be an actor." He then elaborated on how he, "loved cinnamin rolls" along with the ability to turn right on red lights. These were the things he enjoyed most about his stay in Los Angeles. After the interview was completed, DeJardin's coach was invited up on stage to instruct Kelly and Neil, on how to tap dance. They continued this throughout the break.

Kelly and Neil, also interviewed two other members of #Academy Award's Best Picture entitled, The Artist, winner of five awards. James Cromwell and Penelope Ann Miller, were interviewed as being part of this intriguing film. Kelly asked, why the audience connected with this film so much? Cromwell, splendidly stated, "Young filmmakers know that they can create out of their vision and out of their artistry and it will be accepted by people because we connect the story. That is how we recognize each other." Kelly agreed that the movie, "was beautiful to watch." Penelope completed the interview by expressing how, the audience, "could tell their own love story. Everytime another image comes, it is like turning the page in a book." Neil Patrick Harris suggested that we go see this unique movie now.

Top Fashions Revealed at the Academy Awards

Fashion icons, Issac Mizrahi, Lawrence Zarian and Maria MeNude Das, shared their personal opinions about the fashions at the Academy Awards. They approved of such dazzling outfits worn by Cameron Diaz, Michelle Williams, #Jennifer Lopez, Octavia Spencer, Emma Stone and Angelina Jolie. People were poled on facebook and Jennifer Lopez was chosen as best dressed for the Academy Awards. Kelly and Neil thanked their audience as well as their guests. Live With Kelly's, 120,227th show which was held at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, California had come to a conclusion. It was now time to pack up the crew and head back to New York. What a plethora of interest and excitement this after the Oscars show had been. An event we will look forward to for the next time.
