“Before the awards, the producers revealed, DeGeneres had told a couple of stars like Streep that she’d be coming into the audience to play with them. “But nobody really knew anything,” Zadan said. “A couple of people knew Ellen was going to come out and talk to them. Meryl said, ‘Great, let’s have fun.’ But it was all improvised to a degree. When Ellen was planning the selfie, she thought it would be Meryl, and maybe Julia [Roberts]. I don’t think she anticipated that all those stars would get out of their seats and surround them.” In fact, in rehearsal, with DeGeneres’ writers sitting in for the stars, the bit was blocked out on the assumption that Streep would take the shot, although ultimately Bradley Cooper volunteered.
DeGeneres also masterminded the pizza boy gag. “When Ellen said she wanted to do it, we said we’d hire an actor, but she said, ‘No, no, no. You’re not hiring an actor. I want a real pizza delivery person,’ ” Zadan revealed. “We said that the FBI would have to do a background check. She said, ‘I don’t care. I want it to be real. I want this guy to walk in and not know he’s going to the Academy Awards.’ “”
She’s a genius
today there was a snowboard race at the resort i’m staying at and i’m a pretty decent snowboarder so i thought why not try right. so i wear all black just because it’s the only color i own and i ended up winning and when the announcer came over to me he said “dude! that was pretty awesome bro, what’s your name?” and i took my helmet off like in the movies and let my hair fall out and was like “caitlin” and everyone was liKE OOOOOOH
Hi everyone, my name is Alex and this is my story:
On the left is a picture of me, and the girl on the right is my good friend Jubilee. I met her on tumblr in June 2013, and in the shortest amount of time, she became the best person to ever walk into my life. There’s just one problem in our lives at the moment.
I’m living in England, while she’s living in America.
We talk every day without fail, we skype 4/5 days a week. I’ve never not smiled when talking to her, and she is my best friend and I’m basically in love with her.
Recently people have jokingly saying we’d be a cute couple and stuff but I feel it’s a real matter that I need to be with her, I’ve even gone as far as to applying for my “gap year placement in industry” in America just so hopefully one day I can see her.
Going to America is tough for me because I am still in my studies, and my part time job working 12 hours a week leaves me with hardly any money after paying bills etc. I am sharing this with everyone because I hope to reach out to the hearts of all my followers to help me to achieve my dream of being able to hold her in my arms just for a day.
On my blog I have set up a paypal account, with the option to donate. For me to go and visit Jubilee for just a weekend would make my life complete. It sounds like I’m asking for a lot, my target for me to make this happen is around £1300-1500.
I’m not asking anyone to do anything, it is merely just an optional thing if people would like to share their interest. But if just 1/10th of my followers donated a single £1, I’d be 2/3s of the way to my target, and hopefully my little savings could fill in the rest.
Again I’m not ASKING people to do it, I am just seeking any miniscule amounts of goodwill
Thank you for your time if you read all this. For this just to be acknowledged, I am the most grateful person.
