“Aren’t the Oscars about more than Fashion?

Good morning, friends. Last night, Amazon Sage dream travelled to the Oscars. I don’t know about you, but if I had worked as hard as those people work, putting together films that not only entertain, but have the possibility of changing the world, I would resent being placed on some yahoo’s list of “Best” or “Worst Dressed” Oscar attendee. What if, when Amazon Sage travelled back to the night of the Academy Awards, she saw and heard something that this:
An attractive newswoman, stands on the red carpet, microphone in hand, providing the best and the beautiful with a red carpet greeting.

It is in great part, due to the brave political statements, made in her film, that she was selected. 
With a superficial smile planted on her face, Amy approaches. “Dr. Williams, welcome to the event of the season! I see you are dressed in the attire of your ancestors. Not exactly Valentino or Oscar de la Renta, but certainly, uh, interesting.” With a slight sneer she continues, “Where would you suggest I send our viewers if they want to find something like this?”

As Elizabeth makes her way into the crowd, shaking hands and smiling, Amy raises her hand and stops her camera man. So impacted is she by Elizabeth’s words, that for moments afterward, she fades into the background, letting Elizabeth’s words soak in.  When she resumes interviewing, it is with a different spirit, not about fashion but about humanity and heritage, the topics so many films try to share. Discretely, as Amy continues her conversations, she decides to do more listening than talking. What if....
