94th Oscars® Awards Ceremony

The 94th Oscars® Awards evening presenters honored the films from the past that change our culture, perspective, and brought forward struggles in life. The most inspiring moment of the 94th Oscars® Awards evening is Minnelli and Gaga’s interactions. The grace and beauty of two women supporting and sustaining generations disappeared and it is the true nature of humanity. Gaga reassures Minnelli as she appears unsure. Gaga states, “I got you.”

Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes brings the hostess role back to the 94th Oscars® Awards with laughter and style. It is great having the normalcy return. The night filled with glamour, beauty, and remembrance.

94th Oscars® Governors Ball Recipes

Recipe courtesy Wolfgang Puck

  • 1. Bring 2-3 quarts of water to a boil in a pot. Add 2 Tbsp of salt to the water and then the pasta. Cook for about 8 minutes or to al dente. Strain.
  • 2. In a heavy bottom pot, melt butter and then whisk flour into the melted butter. Continue to whisk for two minutes on low heat avoiding any color.
  • 3. Add milk to the butter and flour mixture continuing to stir until the milk thickens to a creamy consistency and coats the back of a spoon.

  • 6. Serve!
Chocoloate Bark Oscar Governors Ball 2022 4Chion Lifestyle
CHOCOLATE BARK

CHOCOLATE BARK

Yield: Serves 16 Recipe courtesy Wolfgang Puck Catering

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 pound dark chocolate (64 to 70 percent cocoa content), coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup roasted pecan halves
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped roasted macadamia nuts
  • 1/4 cup roasted shelled pistachio nuts
  • 1/4 cup roasted shelled sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
INSTRUCTIONS

If you start with raw shelled nuts, put them in a single layer in a baking pan and roast them in a preheated 350°F oven until golden, about 6 minutes; then remove them from the oven and cool to room temperature before making the bark.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Put the chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Put the bowl in the microwave, set the power level to medium, and microwave for 20 seconds. Stir the chocolate with a rubber spatula and, if not smoothly melted, microwave again for 20 seconds longer. Continue only until the chocolate is smooth. Spread the melted chocolate on the parchment-lined baking sheet to a thickness of 1/4 inch. (It’s okay if the edges of the spread-out chocolate aren’t neat, since you’ll be breaking it up.) Immediately sprinkle the pecans, macadamias, pistachios, sunflower seeds, cherries, and apricots over the still-melted chocolate. Leave the chocolate to set until solid, about 20 minutes at cool room temperature or 5 to 10 minutes in the refrigerator. Break the chocolate into rough serving pieces and store in a covered container at cool room temperature until serving time

▪ 1¼ oz Tequila Don Julio Reposado

▪ ½ oz Coconut Milk
▪ ½ – ¾ oz Honey Syrup (2:1 ratio)

Preparation:
  1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice

Academy Awards ~ Winners, Fun, & Fashion

Academy Awards ~ Winners, Fun, & Fashion

Academy Awards brings back the red carpet and the award show in person. The night is filled with winners, fun, and fashion. This is different and strange from the traditional Oscars®. The locations is at Union Station not the Dolby Theatre and only 200 guests in appearance.

Academy Award Red Carpet

The men rocked this red carpet this year. Many took the traditional black tux but some took a non-tradtional look with colorful suits including one set of nominees wearing similar gold and black suits.

There is a lot of large puffy sleeves on the red carpet fashion. This is such a joyous time after a year of very little fashion shows and red carpet. The looks are personal and styled for a dramatic look. This was a great time to get dressed up in glam after a year of leisure wear and masks. Yeah for the lipstick, missed seeing lipstick this last year.

The Oscars® this year was a bit off and different from tradition. The times have changes and shifted since COVID-19. Film was an industry struck down but The Academy Awards took on the challenge and created an event that was elegant and entertaining in a time where it is much needed. My favorite films this year was The Octopus Teacher and The United States vs. Billie Holiday. What was your favorite film from the last year? Post your answer here.

CHICKEN POT PIE Wolfgang Oscars 4Chion Lifestyle

Chicken Pot Pie

(recipe courtesy Wolfgang Puck, adapted from “Wolfgang Puck Makes it Easy,” Rutledge Hill Press, 2004)

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch chunks

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

1/2 pound organic red-skinned potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1/2 pound organic carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

1 sprig thyme

1 bay leaf

1 cup white wine

2 cups organic chicken stock

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream

1/4 cup dry sherry

1/2 cup shelled or frozen peas

Approximately 1/2 pound frozen puff pastry, defrosted following package instructions

1 cage-free egg

Ingredients

Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper, and toss in a mixing bowl with 2 tablespoons of the flour until evenly coated. In a large skillet over high heat, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the chicken pieces, reduce the heat slightly, and sauté, turning them occasionally, until light golden and thoroughly cooked, about 5 to 10 minutes. sing a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside. Add the remaining oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter to the pan, then add the potatoes, carrots, and onions and sauté until they begin to look glossy and bright, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, stir in the garlic, red pepper flakes, thyme, and bay leaf, and sauté, just until the vegetables begin to color slightly, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Add the wine, turn up the heat, stir and scrape with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan deposits, and simmer until the liquid reduces by about half, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and the 1 cup of cream. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce the heat slightly, and simmer briskly until the liquid reduces by about half again and is thick and creamy about 15 minutes. Remove the sprig of thyme and the bay leaf. Stir in the reserved chicken pieces and the sherry. Stir together the butter and remaining flour and stir this paste into the mixture. Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper.

Transfer to 4 large individual ovenproof 2-cup soup bowls, 4 ramekins of the same size, or a 2-quart baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the filling is cold, at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Make sure the puff pastry is no thicker than 1/4 inch. With the tip of a sharp knife cut the pastry into 4 circles that will overhang the rim of the serving bowls or ramekins by about half an inch; for a single large baking dish, cut 4 circles that will cover its top, or use one large sheet.

In a small bowl, beat together the egg and the remaining 1 tablespoon cream to make an egg wash. Brush the tops and outsides of the rims of the bowls. Place the bowls, ramekins, or baking dish on a baking tray and place the puff pastry circles on top, pressing them gently over the sides of the dishes. Pierce the tops with the tip of a paring knife. Brush the top of the pastry with egg wash. Carefully transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake until the filling is bubbling hot and the pastry is a deep golden brown, 25 to 35 minutes. Serve hot.

Best Picture Green Book Oscars®

Best Picture Green Book Oscars®

Best Picture

The Best Picture at the 91st Oscars® is Green Book. This story brings forward the fact that we need to sit down and discuss racism in a safe environment.

Green Book Producers

Jim Burke is a producer and actor, known for Green Book (2018), The Descendants(2011) and Election (1999). This film took many puns and knocks during production. Burke responds to this time, “I’ll just say, yes, it was discouraging; but we always went back to the film.  And when we had a bad day, we’d pop in the movie, and we were reminded that we’re all really proud of this film, all of us and all of the over 500 people who helped make it.”

Peter Farrell is a producer and writer, known for Green Book (2018), There’s Something About Mary (1998) and Dumb and Dumber (1994). Farrell talks about his approach to winning, “It’s like if I watch a football game and I need my team to score, I just leave the room, and they will.  If I’m watching them, they won’t.  So I just kind of thought about everything but winning this thing, and it worked.”

Charles B. Wessler is known for his work on There’s Something About Mary (1998), Dumb and Dumber (1994) and It’s Pat: The Movie (1994). Wessler talks about the moment Julia Roberts (he did forget her name) announced Green Book for Best Picture, “I just want to say one thing.  These guys may or may not agree with me, but when I’m forgetting the name of the actress who gave us the award.  I don’t know why.”
Burke states, “Julia Roberts.”
Wessler continues, “Julia Roberts. She opened up thank you.  She opened up the thing, and I’m not kidding, I started to talk to my friend sitting next to me; and she said GREEN BOOK, and I so just to let you know, were we thinking we could win?  I kind of forgot that we could, and, you know.” 

Film Synopsis

The title and subject matter are a reference to “The Negro Motorist Green Book,” also known as “The Negro Travelers’ Green Book.” Published from 1936-1966, the guide helped African-American travelers find lodging, restaurants, and other businesses that would serve them. It eventually covered most of North America, plus Bermuda and the Caribbean. (IMDB)

Film Fun Facts

The real Tony Lip is best known for playing Carmine Lupertazzi on The Sopranos.

The film is dedicated to “Larry the Crow,” a bird that hung around the shooting location. Viggo Mortensen cared for the animal after it was hit by a car.

The film is about “Tony Lip” Viggo Mortensen and Dr. Don Shirley’s relationship and how they changed each other in a time when it was crazy, obviously.

Regina King Supporting Actress

Regina King Supporting Actress

This film is a celebration of love and a reminder of the struggles facing many African American women in this country. Regina King envelopes this struggle and love to win the Oscar® for Best Supporting Actress.

Actress in a Supporting Role

Regina King brings her mother to the Oscars®. She says about her mother being there, “I feel like kind of like one of those full circle moments because so much of the character Sharon Rivers was mapped or inspired by my mother and my grandmother.” She gets teary-eyed as she reflects and says thanks to these women.

She goes on to say, ” James Baldwin birthed this baby and Barry, you nurtured her, you surrounded her with so much love and support, so it’s appropriate for me to be standing here because I’m an example of what it looks like when support and love is poured into someone.” That is truly was. She is wearing an Oscar® winning Oscar De La Renta white gown.

This film is important in the narrative that there remains a divide in this country. We have moved forward and backward throughout the 400 years since the first slave being brought to this country. King states about winning, “But it’s just a reminder of when Hattie McDaniel won.  She didn’t win just because black people voted for her.  She won because she gave an amazing performance.”

King did present a strong woman fighting for her family and her dreams. Kings said about working on the film, “When you have men and women working together, pretty amazing things happen.”

She continues with, “I feel like I’ve had so many women that have paved the way, are paving the way, and I feel like I walk in their light, and I also am creating my own light.”
