In honor of the Oscars on March 2nd I thought it would be fun to make my own awards ceremony.
I thought instead of best picture or best director I would apply them to 2013.
I am calling it the I.I.A.O.T.L.A.A. – Imagination Insurance Awards of the Life and Art Association.
The categories I came up with.

- Best Dinner
- Best Moment with my Leading Lady

- Best Social Media Post
- Best Social Media Comment
- Best Time with my family and friends
- Best new Gizmo

IT IS AN ORANGE TIE AFFAIR
Dress up appropriate for your event. It could be your bests dud’s or your wackiest.
Take some selfies if you are sans paparazzi.

Have one of your Youtube Videos playing in the background or put together a Facebook video (make one here)
Then give a speech about what is important in your life and why you love everything you do and what you are planning to do in the future.

MAKE UP YOUR OWN “OSCAR”
Look at all of the objects in your house that are just sitting there or that you have a lot of. And then think about what family member that object reminds you of. or just add -ie after the objects name. Like Cup becomes the Cuppie Award. It’s silly and fun. or just spray paint a doll or object gold and you have your award.
THE STORY OF A KNIGHT CALLED OSCAR
Since the initial awards banquet on May 16, 1929, in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel’s Blossom Room, 2,809 statuettes have been presented. Each January, additional new golden statuettes are cast, molded, polished and buffed by R.S. Owens & Company, the Chicago-based awards manufacturer retained by the Academy since 1982. Oscar stands 13½ inches tall and weighs in at a robust 8½ pounds. The film reel features five spokes, signifying the five original branches of the Academy: actors, directors, producers, technicians and writers. Although the statuette remains true to its original design, the size of the base varied until 1945, when the current standard was adopted. Officially named the Academy Award of Merit, the statuette is better known by its nickname, Oscar. While the origins of the moniker aren’t clear, a popular story has it that upon seeing the trophy for the first time, Academy librarian (and eventual executive director) Margaret Herrick remarked that it resembled her Uncle Oscar. The Academy didn’t adopt the nickname officially until 1939, but it was widely known enough by 1934 that Hollywood columnist Sidney Skolsky used it in a piece referring to Katharine Hepburn’s first Best Actress win. content content content
