article imagePlastic covers the Oscars carpet as crews continue their work Special

By Tim O'Brien     Feb 24, 2012 in Entertainment
As the themed "red" carpet continues to be put in to place for Sunday's Oscar telecast, crews are hard at work preparing for the event.
Perhaps they are the unsung part of the event. These tireless workers toil day and night to make sure all is well when showtime arrives.
From the painters, welders, craftsmen to the electricians and countless others, it is their job to get it done. Not to mention, avoiding the countless gawkers, including the press, who tend to congregate, sometimes for no reason at all.
The bleachers, carpet and all that is the award show, gets started on Monday before the show and extends through Monday morning, after the show. In fact, when the show is on, the carpet, for the most part, is taken away.
In Hollywood, if you blink you just may miss the opening of a movie, the speech from a celebrity who just got star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, or a glance walking in or out of a club.
As fast as it goes up, the faster it comes down and goes away. Many who venture into Hollywood are disappointed because they do not see any stars. One has to know where to look and show up when an event is going on.
Most of the time, a star sighting does not happen -- even in Hollywood.
