I'm getting ready for my close-up as a red carpet correspondent at the Streamy Awards, so this post will be brief.
It's ironic that I got professional makeup for my gig as a "Bleacher Fan" at last month's OSCARS... but have to do my own today (and get all dressed up, to boot).
That's just one of the differences between attending the Mother of All Awards shows and an upstart honoring web-based entertainment. I figure the coverage will have a guerrilla-style approach... beginning with the fact that the celebrities arriving on the red carpet will be interviewed by bloggers armed with pocket HD camcorders.
I am told there will be Internet access in the press room, and this time, I've been invited to bring my laptop... so I plan to have some clips posted once the red carpet arrivals have been seated and the festivities begin. And starting at 6:00 Pacific time, you can watch the show live online (naturally!) on the Streamys website, here.
In the meantime, PLEASE enter my drawing at SoCal Stuff for the popcorn popper. I'm announcing a winner tomorrow... as I start another drawing for some more cool prizes, courtesy of Kodak.
DISCLOSURE: I am receiving my press credential at the invitation of Kodak, who also provided me with a Zi8 camcorder and an M530 EasyShare digital camera, which I will be using to document this event. They also sent me a Pulse electronic picture frame to display the photos I am taking there. I am receiving no monetary compensation for my participation at the Streamys.
