Red carpet, fancy set, new hosts, who cares! We all know that the Oscars are really just all about the envelope! As visual artist and primarily a stationer, I am thrilled to see the envelope get glammed up, it is about time. Because at the end of the night the only thing that matters to anyone is the envelope and what is in it! Now in the future -- each award should come in it's own uniquely designed envelope and then we can have critiques on the morning shows about the best and worst dressed news of the night and get a bit more exposure for paper artists and stationery creators adding us to the mix as well.

For the past 70 years, the names of Academy Award winners have been sealed in unremarkable little envelopes presenters have no qualms tearing open and leaving aside like some discarded fruit rind. Now, the homely Oscar envelope is getting a Red Carpet makeover.
