I was wearing an off-the-rack dirt-brown tweed suit.
If the TV viewing audience was scandalized by Streisand’s apparel, so too, I assumed, were those tux and gown-wearing journalists in the press room when I made my appearance. The shame.
Who knew the media dressed as if they were attending the show instead of covering it? All we saw on TV were nominees and presenters being interviewed on the red carpet and the parade of tux and gown-bedecked guests making their way into the Pavilion. We never saw the working stiffs in the trenches backstage.
