UKFilm.TV At The Oscars - Step 1 Book The Hotel

As Oscars fever starts, I hope to bring you a regular update on this blog and let you know about my travels and experiences in covering the Oscars for the first time. My press access was approved this week and I should be able to use my Sony phone to take pictures and blog them direct to your inbox from Hollywood, seconds after I've taken it.

First of, I've booked the hotel. The Hollywood Renaissance Hotel is the actual hotel where the Oscars are being held. I had to be quick just to get a deluxe suite, as the standard rooms were all taken as you can imagine. I'm also getting in touch with my BAFTA LA colleagues and the various publicists at Sony, Warners etc to try and get invites to some of the events and infamous parties in and around the city. I'll let you know how it goes in the next update.
