Hollywood is preparing for its copycat and less glamorous version of Beaujolais Day, which they call ‘The Oscars’.
The annual event masquerades as an ‘awards ceremony’, presumably for copyright reasons, and is held in Los Angeles.
The Hollywood version is always held around four months after our Beaujolais Day, to allow the World to observe and recreate the styles displayed in Swansea at the end of November.
Beaujolais Day veteran Theresa Connell said: “Its cute that they try to replicate all our glitz and glamour, a bit desperate, but cute.
“It’s good that they’re all actors and actresses because really they’re just pretending to be us.
“I’ve heard there’s loads of cocaine and pervy old leery men in those Oscars too, so really it’s an exact rip off of Beaujolais.”
Two time Beaujolais Day attendee Pete Bowen added: “Good luck to all those actors trying to find the same shiny ice grey coloured suit I wore, because Matalan discontinued it.
“They’re obviously copying us because they even have after parties. Although I doubt Vanity Fair’s will be as good as my mate Rob’s in Morriston.
“We was right off it mush.”
Academy Awards representative Cheryl Gray added: “Another year of Jennifer Lawrence asking if her fake tan is ‘on point’ and Robert De Niro seeing if I can get him into the Morgan’s marquee this year.
“When all’s said and done, it doesn’t matter where or who you are, get enough people dressed up and messed up and the result is pretty similar.”
