Instant insider at the Oscars

Kelly FitzGerald, a sophomore from Geneva, New York, scored one of the hottest seats in the world at the 87th Academy Awards Sunday night. She was part of Team Oscar, one of six young people selected by Oscar producers and the Academy after submitting 60-second videos about the best advice they had ever received. FitzGerald's video was about sharing a smile.

Members of Team Oscar had the job of handing the Oscar statuettes to celebrity presenters onstage. The Associated Press reported there were 1,100 aspiring filmmakers who submitted films; the winners' perks included a private tour of Disney's Animation Research Library, a visit to the Disney lot and a preview screening of "Cinderella." Team Oscar "offers an exclusive learning experience," FitzGerald told People magazine. Read more about FitzGerald's honor and watch her video. She showed us that black, gold and the red carpet make a glitteringly good combination.

Cheers,
