I'm checking the mail every day, waiting for a gorgeous ivory envelope of considerable heft to fall out of the mailbox. And there, in perfect script, will be my invitation to the Academy Awards. I deserve it. As someone who papered her childhood room with pictures of movie stars, and who more recently has plunked down unconscionable admission prices to see movies of questionable merit, I think it's payback time. So I stand ready to take my seat at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday.

SPECIAL THE OSCARS. The Grammys. The Emmys. The VMAs. The Geek Awards? You're reading right. Local geeks - as in nerds, dweebs, dorks and brainiacs - walk the red carpet and take home engraved plaques tonight at the first Philly Geek Awards. The sold-out event takes place, not surprisingly, at the Academy of Natural Sciences. It was dreamed up by the guys behind Geekadelphia, a local blog for - you guessed it - geeks. Blog co-founder Eric Smith noticed his fellow, um, technophiles getting cred nationally for their tweets, podcasts, viral videos, science festivals, etc., and asked himself, "Why was no one honoring our local comic artists, video-game developers, Web designers . . . ?"

Gowns in sparkling nudes and vibrant shades were the major red-carpet trends Saturday evening at the 155th Academy of Music Anniversary Concert and Ball. Off-the-shoulder gowns seemed just as popular as strapless ones. And A-line silhouettes were preferred to ball gowns. In fact, Philadelphia's doyennes stepped up the glamour quotient to such heights that some of the dresses were dead ringers for gowns worn by celebrities on red carpets past. For example, first lady Lisa Nutter was particularly radiant sailing up the Academy of Music steps in a deep purple Nicole Miller gown.

The police escort swept into little Marston Street in North Philadelphia, bringing the limousines carrying Philadelphia's distinguished, esteemed and famished guests. It was almost 4 p.m. and the representatives of Philadelphia's new "sister city," Douala, in the West African nation of Cameroon, had been on the go since 9 a.m. They were tired and hungry. Mostly hungry. They were in the middle of a tightly scheduled, event-filled, three-day visit, during which it might have seemed to them that the city had not only rolled out the red carpet but also was using it to flail them.

WAS IT JUST us or was the Oscars red carpet a little dull this year? Nobody brought the crazy. Instead, we got a parade of underfed actresses in very light colors ( Jessica Chastain , Charlize Theron , Anne Hathaway , Jennifer Lawrence , Amy Adams , etc.). Or if they weren't in light colors, they seemed to be in armor ( Halle Berry , Naomi Watts , Stacy Keibler ). The men? One boring tuxedo after another. The Oscar red-carpet pre-shows are such a big part of the festivities now that the performers are getting a little cautious - as if Joan Rivers and E!

Philly's first red-carpet movie premiere in some time will bring a gaggle of singing and dancing teens to the Prince Music Theater in Center City at 5 p.m. Tuesday. Standing Ovation , a feel-good flick about kids entering a music-video contest, opens Friday in 1,100 theaters nationwide. It was shot at the Shore last year. "The idea about making a movie for kids with kids is just fantastic," said James Brolin , an executive producer drafted by friend Stewart Raffill , whose wife, Diane Kirman , and local surgeon William Lewis got the project going.

As the Hollywood glitterati gather Sunday night in Tinseltown to honor the movie industry's best, L. Di Caprio will be among those walking the red carpet. In Malvern. No, not the hunky actor - he doesn't spell his name with a space before the "C. " Starring at Malvern's Oscar Night festivities will be one Lisa Di Caprio and her business partner, Darci Henry. Owners of Kiss and Makeup cosmetics boutique on King Street, the pair have organized a black-tie Academy Awards bash with help from nearby Restaurant Alba.

   Can someone please tell me what happened to E! Entertainment's red-carpet coverage Sunday night? Not only was Ryan Seacrest's hair too high, he all but disappeared during the last 45 minutes of red-carpet time. We were left with a photo montage of celebrities with much information missing, like who designed their dresses. Poor purple-haired Kelly Osbourne, diva has-been Kimora Lee Simmons, and the likable Giuliana Rancic were left filling the dead air with not much to go on. Maybe Seacrest got in trouble?

For several years now, the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards have served as the link between the fashion and beauty industry and the rest of us. Remember Angelina Jolie's sleek white Dolce & Gabbana pantsuit? Jennifer Lopez's barely there green Versace gown? America Ferrera's cute and classy Brian Reyes debut? Now that Sunday's ceremony is a news conference and the fate of the 2008 Academy Awards, slated for Feb. 24, is in limbo, that connection has been temporarily severed.

Jalen Rose steadfastly says he didn't hear what Allen Iverson said he heard Jan. 28 in Conseco Fieldhouse. Iverson, the 76ers' star and a leading candidate to become the NBA's Most Valuable Player, said he heard racist comments from the fans that night. The issue became a cause celebre when Iverson vented about it a couple of nights later in Toronto, causing Pacers management to conduct an investigation and league authorities to have security people make four visits to the arena.

Miley's social responsibility With success and wealth comes social responsibility, says Miley Cyrus , whose Happy Hippie Foundation helps homeless youth. Cyrus tells Elle that she's a lot like the character she plays in Woody Allen 's Crisis in Six Scenes : a hippie activist riddled with anxiety about the world's injustices. The role reminded Cyrus of the guilt that consumes her for not helping others. "I was covered in rashes because I was so stressed," she says. "So now I try to do as much as I can. " Cyrus says she has vowed never to do the red carpet again, since it's such an ostentatious sign of privilege.

Private parts clearly aren't private on celebrity red carpets. Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards was replete with sheer gowns that revealed many a performer's, well, cash and prizes. It seems we've been there and done that with super-high splits, deep decolletage, and even a few nipple flashes. We are talking full-frontal action. "Everything on the VMA red carpet last night was angel-gone-bad," said Anthony Henderson, an Atlanta-based fashion stylist who counts actress Sheryl Lee Ralph as one of his clients.

NEW YORK - The streets were closed off around the Beacon Theater, the red carpet was rolled out, but the wind-up to the 70th annual Tony Awards on Sunday was a bit muted, said longtime observers. Celebrities wore elegant silver ribbons. The reason: the Orlando shootings. The festivities didn't stay restrained, as the casts of numerous Broadway shows performed musical numbers out on the street in front of the theater as well as inside onstage. But in an industry with a high percentage of gay men and women, the carnage in Florida was acknowledged in the opening moments, and the awards were dedicated to the victims.

On a recent Thursday afternoon, Philadelphia dressmaker Michael Thomas was pinning navy rosettes on a midnight silk-and-tulle prom gown for Baldwin School senior Alex Brittingham. Thomas had been working on Brittingham's dress for a few months, yet the silhouette - with its fitted lace bodice that flares into a full, princess skirt - mirrors the silver Marchesa gown that model Karolina Kurkova wore to the Met Gala on Monday night. "That gown was amazing," Thomas said. In keeping with the gala's theme, Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology, Kurkova's rosettes were studded with twinkling LED lights.

Hair was slick, cheekbones were chiseled, and gowns swirled into icy, jewel-toned pools on the red carpet at Sunday night's 88th Academy Awards. The culmination of the 2015-16 awards season brought with it a bevy of over the knee-length slits, and deep décolletage. And, oh, how we loved the sparkle and origami-drama. Optic white continued its clean rule, as did emerald green and navy blue. But soft pops of lemon yellow and commanding red oranges made armchair fashionistas everywhere take serious notice.

For fashionistas like socialite Olivia Palermo, actress Teyonah Parris, and even little ol' me, a Jeffrey Levinson handbag is a vibrant-hued beaut that holds lipstick, keys, an iPhone 6, and still fits in the palm of your hand. But the eponymously named red-carpet-worthy jewel also is a sculpted piece of aerodynamic art. Levinson - who lives in Wynnewood and honed his design knowledge in the luxury-automobile industry - fashions the clutches from two aerospace-grade, hand-cut aluminum shells snugly held together with a specially designed frame.

Former Eagle Jeremiah Trotter never wanted to star in a movie - even after he had agreed to do so. But a friend of his working on The North Star , the story of two escaped slaves who make their way to Bucks County, was persistent, and Trotter found himself in front of the camera. The North Star premieres Thursday at the Kimmel Center before opening at the County Theater,  Penn Cinema, and Newtown Theater  on Friday for its first regular run. Director Thomas K. Phillips, a Bucks native, also is launching an educational component to the film.
