Rolling out the Red Carpet

We are now three days out from the 82nd Academy Awards. Rethink. has been waiting for this day all year and counting down.

In Hollywood, preparations are being made outside the Kodak Theatre along the stretch of Hollywood Boulevard, between N. Orange Drive and N. Highland Avenue. In the photo above, you can see a team of workers rolling out the Red Carpet Wednesday.

You'll notice the tents are back this year after a one-year hiatus. If it's going to rain, awards show organizers know tents are a MUST, especially organizers for this year's Golden Globes. After deciding not to pitch the tents earlier that day, celebrities found themselves hovering under umbrellas and "Precious" star Gabourey Sidibe was among the many sporting dresses with splotches of rain. Suffice it to say it was not pretty.

When I was a bleacher fan in 2008, my friends and I were bummed by the tents and inclement weather; however, we enjoyed not getting wet.

Right now, Weather.com is forecasting party cloudy skies with highs in the low 60s; the chance of rain at 20 percent. Expect a decision to be made by early Sunday morning about keeping the tents up .
