DATELINE: HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA

The 87th Academy Awards took place at the Dolby theater on February 22. Representing the McCarty Metro and Rick's Martini Bar were our own Jerry McCarty and Rick Farmiloe. Rick's movie "The Boxtrolls" was up for an award for "Best Animated Movie". The two cruised the red carpet, enjoyed the awards show, and even attended the Vanity Fair Party after the event. Said Jerry about the party, "Lot's of fun. A-List Celebrities, Disco Music, Open Bar, and In & Out Burgers. If this isn't heaven, I don't know what is." Although The Boxtrolls did not win their category, it is true what they say, there are no losers.
