Pick of the Day: Red Hot Riot

The 84th annual Academy Awards go tonight at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Approximately 2100 kilometres north-east of that site, where most of the biggest names in Hollywood will gather to salute themselves, a motley group of local entertainers will assemble at Artesian on 13th for the February installment of this comedy/variety show hosted by Jayden “He’s no Billy Crystal, that’s for sure” Pfeifer.

Coincidence? Hardly, because the theme of the latter “shew” as Ed Sullivan used to say is none other than the Academy Awards themselves. They’ll be broadcast on a big-screen TV, and the cast will do comedy bits as the statues are doled out.

Doors are at 7:30 p.m., tickets are $10.

  1. It’s not called the Kodak Theatre anymore…it’s like the Advanced Credit Recovery, Inc. Theatre or something like that, but it’s no longer Kodak.

  2. Oscar spot now called Hollywood & Highland Center, no longer Kodak Theatre

    HOLLYWOOD — Sunday night’s 84th Academy Awards ceremony will not be held at the Kodak Theatre — thanks to the photography company’s bankruptcy troubles and request to have its name stripped from the building — so the venue will instead be referred to during the ceremony as the Hollywood & Highland Center.

    “It will be live from the Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California,” Tom Sherak, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, told ABC7. “That’s what the landlord has asked us to do and we’re going to do it.”
