The Academy Awards are the Super Bowl of awards shows. People gather in front of their televisions, popcorn in one hand, champagne in the other, twittering with excitement over the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. For some of us, this one night a year is basked in traditions with family, friends and loved ones. Bets are made, wallets are squeezed and if you’re lucky, you’ll walk away with the pot.

Many assume the highlight of the evening comes when the winning actress drops an “F-Bomb” or when the host takes the stage for a musical performance. Those people are wrong. Well, not wrong…just misguided. The real treat comes when we get to don our best Joan Rivers hat, and watch as Hollywood’s finest strut their stuff down the crimson way.
