Our Los Angeles Tour Guests Feel the Excitement
Sightseeing with our private luxury tour guests around Beverly Hills last Sunday gave them a chance to feel the Golden Globes excitement mounting in the area. The Goodyear blimp came up from its base in Carson, CA (just south of Los Angeles) to provide aerial photography for the television coverage of the first of the many Hollywood award shows to come this season. From Holmby Hills and the many celebrity mansions we enjoy visiting with our clients we could see the blimp hovering over the Beverly Hilton where the prestigious award show has been hosted since 1961. As you might expect, the closer we got to the hotel the more traffic we encountered but it was worth it to show our visitors the red carpet entrance and all the press, promotion and security activity around the hotel. In many ways, just another Hollywood day – perfect weather and film stars walking around in fine clothing.
Today’s Private Los Angeles Tour Topic – The Razzies
No kidding, the highlight and great delight of living in Tinseltown on April Fool’s Day is the announcement of the winners of the Golden Razzies, the worst of Hollywood’s movie efforts in the previous year. There were some fantastically bad efforts this year that took up time and space in movie theaters around the globe. Our private Hollywood tour guests sitting back behind us in their luxury leather seats love to hear the inside scoop on all the different award nominations and final determinations and surprisingly, they are often unaware of the auspicious dishonor granted on Razzie recipients. It is all in good fun. We all know that highly disrespected films often make a lot of money for the studios and filmmakers. That keeps them coming back year after year with yet more awful offal. That’s show business!
This year’s worst picture nominees are:
- That’s My Boy (Adam Sandler does it again!)
- A Thousand Words
- Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2
- Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure
