Oscar day for Amy and "Enchanted"
With just a few hours to go before the 80th Academy Awards ceremony, here's a list of things you should expect from the evening (Amy-related, of course!).
- Amy should spend the day at the Kodak Theatre for a last rehearsal session - especially for the singing part.
- Most of the "big" stars usually walk the red carpet around 5pm/PT. It should be Amy's case - with a stunning gown! However, arrivals actually start way sooner than that.
- The ceremony kicks off at 5:30pm/PT.
- The Oscar Amy is going to present is still unknown but, as a "newcomer" in the presenting session, it would appear logical if she hands out a technical Academy Award.
- Patrick Dempsey is expected to open the Enchanted music slot, introducing one song.
- After going backstage and getting dressed with her "sensational gown", Amy will perform live the "Happy Working Song".
- She will then get changed and enjoy the rest of the show like everyone else.
- The song "Falling Flowly" from Irish movie Once is said to be favourite to win the "Best song" Academy Award.
- If Enchanted wins, Amy will not go and pick up the award - Alan Menkell and Stephen Schwartz will. However, she will most probably get a mention in their acceptance speech.
- Either way, Amy and the rest of the Enchanted cast & crew are going to attend the Oscar after-party and make the most of it.
We'll post comments - and hopefully pictures - throughout the evening so keep an eye on this blog!
