WEEKNIGHTS 7:00 & 11:30
You really can feel it in the air. I know I know, it sounds cliché, but the week leading up to a big awards show just feels different. Everyone is the newsroom is scrambling to make sure they've watched all the movie.
As a reporter, the last place you want to be is on a podium interviewing a nominee without having seen their film or show.
I watched Drive the other night and absolutely loved it, The Descendants was also great. War Horse was a bit too long for my liking, but what an inspiring movie. I watched The Help on a plane ride a couple weeks ago; the acting was top notch, all of those women deserve to win an award!
I'll catch up on the TV side of things and the rest will be pretty easy. I'll be covering the NBC/E! Party for our Live Post Show, most of the stars have had a few drinks so the interviews are pretty entertaining. See you guys Sunday!
In 2005, Jason Kennedy joined E! as a news correspondent, handling a variety of stories and events for E! News.
A native of Fort Lauderdale, Kennedy became a permanent fixture in his neighborhood, spending most of his time chasing news trucks and taking cabs to news scenes to mock-report on the local news. His love for hosting began in the fifth grade, after he constructed a studio in his basement, equipped with 20 televisions, four cameras, a news desk and an editing station. Unlike most anchors, Kennedy began his first on-air experience at the age of 15.
While attending the University of Miami, Kennedy received numerous awards, including the coveted Associated Press Award for Best News Feature in the state of Florida.
Kennedy finally made the big move to Los Angeles in 2004, when he anchored segments for Open Call on the TV Guide Channel. His experience and talent has led him to report on everything from President Clinton's visit to Miami to Paris Hilton's visit to a Beverly Hills spa.
