It’s that time of year when Hollywood hopefuls don their Sunday best and pervade the Kodak Theatre… whether to win a statuette or just to “be seen.” Read on for some behind-the-scenes Tidbits all about the Academy Awards. • When winners wish to “thank the Academy,” they’re referring to the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, or AMPAS. It was founded as a non-profit organization in 1927, with the goals of promoting the quality of the film medium and providing a forum for the many branches of the industry. (That is, a platform on which to honor not only actors and directors, but all contributors to film production). • How does one join AMPAS? The membership expands solely by invitation. Each year, about 100 invites are sent out to actors, writers, and other film industry personnel. Those who accept the invitation must pay an annual membership fee of $100 and sign documents promising to follow the organization’s rules. Those invited to join in 2008 included Josh Brolin, Jet Li, and Sacha Baron Cohen. • Much like the American population in general, only about 50 percent of Academy members bother to vote each year. • The list of rules and requirements a film must meet in order to be considered for an Oscar are just slightly little less complicated than those printed in the United Nations Charter. For example, submitted films must be of a certain running time, must be recorded on an approved film stock, and must have been publicly exhibited to paying audiences for a specified length of time in certain cities. • Oscar, as the Academy Award statuette is known, measures 13½ inches tall and is heavier than you might expect, at 8½ pounds. It’s made of tin and copper and then plated with gold. Since the identities of the winners are kept secret until the actual awards ceremony, the plaques on the pedestals of the statuettes handed out onstage are blank. Winners return them to the Academy the next morning to have their name, award category, and the year engraved on the plaque. As a protective measure, a unique serial number is engraved on the back of each Oscar, since they remain the legal property of AMPAS.

Can You find the Bouncing Ball that looks like this?

THE ENVELOPE, PLEASE (continued): • The Oscar statuettes are manufactured by R.S. Owens and Company of Chicago; the same company that produces the trophies for Miss America, the NFL’s Most Valuable Player, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. AMPAS usually orders about 100 Oscars (at $200 each) to ensure that they have extras to hand out in categories with multiple winners. • AMPAS rules prohibit studios from using certain methods to promote their films, including direct mail, telephone campaigns, and elaborate banquets. Instead, studios take out expensive “For Your Consideration” ads in film industry magazines like The Hollywood Reporter or Variety. Does this tactic work? DreamWorks Pictures spent over $750,000 on Variety ads to promote 1999’s American Beauty, which won five Oscars. • Once the preliminary voting commences, all AMPAS members are allowed to nominate candidates for Best Picture and the Best Actor categories. Only those who work in the same specialization are allowed to nominate choices for technical awards. Only directors, for instance, can suggest a film for Best Director. Once the preliminary votes are tabulated, the top choices in each category become the official nominees. • After the nominees have been selected, ballots are sent out to all AMPAS members. All members get to vote in every category, even those in which they have no experience. This procedure has been the subject of much criticism. Few AMPAS members bother to screen the foreign film submissions, for example.As a result, a voter may have to select a film he or she has never even seen! • The final ballots are mailed to the public accounting firm of Price Waterhouse Coopers. Three PWC representatives retire to a locked, guarded room to tabulate the votes and prepare the sealed envelopes that contain the names of the 22 main winners. Those envelopes are given to a senior PWC official, who brings them to the auditorium and hands them to the presenters just before each winner is announced. A back-up representative travels to the ceremony in a separate car with a duplicate set of winners’ envelopes, just in case something happens to the first official (or the original envelopes) en route. • If the first courier makes it to the auditorium safe and sound, the back-up sits in the audience and opens the envelopes along with the presenter. This double-check measure allows a PWC (continued) in the third Column:

When someone Mark your calander Siletz River Clean-up first leaves the audience, a designated “seat filler” Saturday each April quickly rushes over and sits in the abandoned chair so that no empty seats appear on camera. • Of course, those in the golden horseshoe also require seats for their escorts and their entourage (personal assistants, family members, etc.), so another dozen seats or more may be spoken for. The families of executives from companies that sponsor the ceremony get the next batch of free seats. Any remaining tickets are offered for $200 each to AMPAS members on a first-come, first-served basis. • Those bleacher seats outside the theater beside the red carpet are available only to those who win a lottery. Interested attendees must submit an application – along with a photo – and then wait to hear whether or not their name has been “pulled out of the hat.” The 400 or so spectators who “win” are given an official acceptance letter from AMPAS. No one else is allowed in the bleachers, even if they spent all night waiting for one. • Even though the stars won’t begin arriving until 4 in the afternoon, spectators with bleacher tickets must arrive at the theater by 9:30 a.m. They’ll be rewarded for their patience with a view from a ringside seat when the stars arrive and walk the legendary red carpet. At 6 p.m., the bleacher crowd will cross the street to enjoy the TV broadcast of the event at the El Capitan Theatre.

Vacation Home or Kennel? DEAR PAW’S CORNER: When I’m staying in a rental home at the coast, where is the best place for my dog, “Riley,” to stay: the rental home or a kennel close by? -- Todd Y., Neotsu, Ore. DEAR TODD: If you’re bringing your dog on vacation with you (which is fantastic, by the way), he should stay with you if at all possible. A kennel tends to be a stressful place for dogs, even if you come to pick him up every day. If you’re vacationing in an unfamiliar place, you may not know how well the kennel is run, if the dogs that stay there are kept healthy and happy, and if illnesses like kennel cough are kept to a minimum. Riley will benefit from his owner being with him in an unfamiliar place, particularly at night. So, Riley should stay with you. If you’re bringing him on vacation, he should experience the vacation with you. A caveat, however always get clearance from the rental home’s owner before bringing a pet. Vacation-rental agreements often stipulate that no pets are allowed in the house. This happens, sadly, because not all pet owners control their pets, and damage can be done to the rental property. Many rentals that allow pets will charge an extra fee, sometimes per pet, to cover any potential damages. The fee is usually nonrefundable -- but in my experience it’s much cheaper than the cost of keeping your pet in a reputable kennel. If the vacation rental you’re considering does not allow pets, look for another house in the area.
