Entertainment Director Cori Murray recaps the red carpet scene, direct from LA
(February 24, 2008; Los Angeles) All seems to be forgiven between writers, actors and producers in Hollywood. The industry players all came out in style—and lots of red—to celebrate the 80th Academy Awards at the Kodak Theatre. The only thing missing during the Oscars was a little racial diversity. Of the 24 categories presented last night, African Americans were only nominated in two: Ruby Dee for best supporting actress and Jamal Joseph, Charles Mack, and Tevin Thomas for best original song “Raise It Up” (August Rush).
