Have You Ever Held An "OSCAR"

Have you every wondered if an OSCAR was really heavy.......
"YES, IT IS"........

I saw Andrew Stanton receive his Oscar last night at the Academy Awards...but little did I know I would be holding that same Oscar today......He received his Oscar for "Wall-E"....he was just as nice as his beautiful SMILE....when he handed me his Oscar all I could think was "I'm holding an Oscar"...and..."Yes, it is heavy".....he sure made my day !!!!!!
Hugs,
Mo :-)

"HOW I MET ANDREW STANTON"
I work for a wonderful airline and spend most of my working time at the airport.....we knew Andrew Stanton was coming in on a flight...... met him at the gate...when I saw him I congratulated him, introduced myself and asked if I could see his Oscar......it really was as simple as that.......of course he was very approachable and that SMILE was contagious.....a very nice man.....so bottom line..."I just asked".....

Oh Wow!!!! You are one lucky girl! I LOVE the movie WALL-E and was VERY disappointed that it didn't win more awards. I watched Andrew Stanton receive his very deserving award - it was the only movie up for awards that I saw (or had any desire to see). We don't go to the movies but maybe once a year if even that. We hate the small multiplex theaters and miss the large singular ones we grew up with, hate all the talking during the shows - rude, rude people, and those people with crying babies etc etc. Who would bring a baby to the movies????? Thank goodness for DVDs and cable. It's the only way we see movies. But I asked my hubby to take me to WALL-E when it came out and he did. He bought the DVD too and we enjoyed the extras on it with Andrew Stanton. So we know who Andrew Stanton is and were so pleased he won the award!
Thank you for sharing that GREAT picture! You make a great couple. Both of you are cuties! I forgot who said it but one of the winners made a comment that the oscar is heavy.

I love your blog!

Lucky you! My dd loves this movie. It is so cute.

Glenda said...

How lucky you were. I was there the day before looking at all the set up. It was fun to see how everything looks in person and the behind the scene look. I actually saw Wolfgang Puck driving his way of the garage next to the Kodak. But it's not exactly like holding a true Oscar.

Ciao

How wonderful, for you! I know while we worked at many airports, many famous people would fly in in their own jet. I got to meet many! Sometimes work is just wonderful! lol
