Oscars In Pictures: Salmon Crackers, Dragons And Anti-Gay Hosts

by | 7th, March 2010

IT’S the Oscars, also known as the 82nd Academy Awards. Anorak’s Man in LA has been nibbling on Oscar salmon crackers – little wafers of toast cut to look like Oscar soldiers and smeared in salmon. If you like man in your fish, this is good news.

In an aside, opposite the Kodak Theatre, you can see a huge advert for the film How to Train Your Dragon. A Kayvan Setareh has been arrested after installing the advertisement.

City attorney’s officials say Setareh posted the unpermitted ‘supergraphic’ despite warnings. He was arrested Friday and is charged with three misdemeanour city code violations and $1 million dollar bail.

One million dollars for all the publicity?

As for the show, well that’s to hosted Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin, the first time the show has been hosted by two people.

Andy Borowitz notes:

“We believe that the hosting of the Academy Awards by a same-sex couple would destroy the sanctity of Oscar hosting,” said Carol Foyler, a key activist who worked to repeal the Maine law. “If Baldwin and Martin are allowed to do this, who will host the Oscars next year — a man and a horse?”

Was Steve Martin in Mr Ed?
