Big Red Carpet Night

February 27, 2012

Oscar Night--one of our favorite nights of the year! Our annual tradition continued, with several friends dressing up and participating in the Oscar pool. With almost comic predictibility, David Krepp ultimately won, guessing the most number of correct Oscar wins. He has yet to be able to make the journey to actually be with us on Oscar night, and yet he has managed to win at least four times by sending his ballot in absentee. It might even be five--I'm sure he'll correct me if I'm wrong. This year, he even shipped our Oscar back to us the day before the event, on the off chance that someone else would be bringing home the gold this year. It turns out, he could have just kept the guy for another year. In addition to pool, we held our highly anticipated Appetizer Contest. The winner this year was Chocolate Pie by Michelle, as a tongue-in-cheek homage to Best Picture nominee The Help. Poor Doug was the only one not in on the joke, as he didn't see the film and The Terrible Awful that Minnie did to that pie in the movie....

The fabulous MCs for the night, with the requisite comic banter:
