The Woman With the Most Academy Awards? It Isn't Who You think it is.

It's not Hepburn, Streep, or Blanchett.  Do you recognize her? Designer Edith Head won a total of 8 Oscars for costume design. I visited an exhibition of some of her designs at the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio in Lancaster last year. It was fascinating to see costumes worn by stars like Katherine Hepburn and Barbara Stanwyck.  Who is nominated for best costume design in 2015? 

Neil Patrick Harris will host the awards ceremony this year.
Who hosted the mostest? Ohio boy Bob Hope hosted the awards 19 times.

Oscar Prep: A Red Carpet LLL Event is a special program offered by Upper Arlington LifeLong Learning.  Enjoy popcorn, movie trailers, backstory, and lively debate with a celebrity panel.  You can get in the picture with your questions.

I watched the Oscar's last Sunday, and as usual, it reminded me that there are a lot of great movies I haven't seen yet. Whether it's a Best Picture nominee I've been meaning to see, or a foreign title that I didn't know about, it's a nice way to highlight some of the interesting films that come out each year. You can find photos and videos of the high points on the Oscars' website.

You can find my blog post with all of the nominees here.
