Now in it's 80th Year, the infamous Academy Awards is in prepartion mode. Presenters are rehearsing and camera crews are setting up.
There are some faces I recognise from last year. This lady, above, from ABC, is back in action and was doing some pre-show footage. What a professional, she even managed to look up to my camera while in the middle of an interview.
Jon Gripton, works at Sky News, and I bumped into him unexpectedly on the red carpet. Jon was the reporter who approached me at the Facebook developers conference last year, as he thought I was brave to ask their U.S. chiefs what they doing about security of personal information. He then introduced me to the live TV team and I ended up on air talking about it. I've since been on Sky News five times, thanks to that initial meeting with Jon, so it was a delight to see him. He'll be covering the Oscars online for SkyNews.com
