As we mentioned yesterday, Hollywood Boulevard is an obstacle course of barricades and detours. But if you’re intrepid and wearing good shoes, there’s gold to be had. Academy gold, that is. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is offering for the first time ever an opportunity for people who will never receive an Oscar via the traditional route – being awarded one – to actually hold the heavy naked guy in their hands and mentally thank God and their imaginary agent (or their agent and imaginary God) for the honor. And yes, we expect the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Jimmy Fallon to take advantage of this opportunity shoulder-to-shoulder with tickled tourists from around the world. The golden op ends tomorrow, March 3, so run don’t walk (but don’t trip over your gown as you try to manage the stairs in your faux bewilderment) to the 3rd level at Hollywood and Highland Center, 6801 Hollywood Boulevard, between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive. From 10AM to 10PM. It’s free. Take your camera like these lucky stiffs did.
