HW

The gleaming surface betrays the fact that like the rest of the world, Hollywood is experiencing an economic slug. In the built-up to the Oscars, LA is putting on her *** show of shimmering decadence .But beneath the surface, times are harder than they ‘d been in decades and it’s only just beginning

 

Caterers and party organizers say plans for Oscars celebrations have slowed and budget for festivities have been cut, some by as much as 75%.

 

This is what’s known as a gifting of sweet, where anyone who’s remotely famous gets free bees bestowed upon them. These vendors know that a photograph of Kate Winslet with their product can have as much impact as an expensive at campaign.

 

Looking around here, there is plenty being given away. There’s gadget like these blue *** enabled sunglasses over here, pieces of pop art ready to be given out. But there’s also the opportunity here to give something to charity and knocked to the fact that out-and-out decadence can be seen as a bit insensitive in these tough times.

Over time the effects of the downturn on the movie industry could be dramatic.

 

“If it’s a five-act recession, I think we are just beginning to start acting. How is gonna affect the real financing of those studios in Hollywood and how is really gonna affect them, the numbers of films they are gonna make, I imagine, significantly. I imagine that we will be seeing major problems of certain studios. They’ll be major pulling back on a whole series of different production levels. I think you’ll see a big effect in the next couple years.”

 

But there are a few better places in the world putting on a show. Hollywood has always been adept at creating illusions. It’s likely we’ll see more up-lifting films like Slumdog Millionaire aimed at distracting us from financial woes. Aside from that, audiences may not see the impact of recession, but the studios will be struggling and there’s no Hollywood ending inside.
