One of my favorite moments from 2018’s 90th Academy Awards show was when host Jimmy Kimmel announced the need to thank the people who truly make all the awards and accolades possible — the movie goers! He said “I don’t just want us to clap, applause is nice, but I really want to thank them.” He then proceeded to take a motley band of stars (Including Gal Gadot, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Hamill, Lupita Nyong’o, Emily Blunt, Ansel Elgort, Armie Hammer, Margot Robbie and Guillermo del Toro) all decked out in their Oscar best to the TCL Chinese Theatre across the street where an unsuspecting audience was watching a preview screening of the movie “A Wrinkle in Time.”
The audience didn’t know that the theater was equipped with cameras, nor that these hollywood stars were waiting to greet them complete with candy and hotdog cannons. I loved the moments it created when the room burst into excitement. I’m sure those moviegoers will never forget that WOW experience. And it was all apart of the Oscars!
