2017 Academy Awards Rolex Green Room Preview

2017 Academy Awards

Rolex Green Room Preview ran a superb story earlier this week that offered a sneak-peak preview of the Green Room at the 89th Academy Awards, which included the two photos below that were taken by Line 8 Photography.

Of course it is alway fun to do some Rolex Spotting, and as wee see the walls in the Academy Award Green Room are covered with photos of former Oscar Winners who wear Rolex. In the photo I see Clint Eastwood, and Robert Redford. I highly recommend checking out Hodinkee's story for more great photos of the Academy Award Rolex Green Room.

Rolex Spotting

I recognize the photo located on the right side, just before the door opening as this photo of Robert Redford, where he is wearing his Rolex Submariner.

I also recognize the image on the far right side, of Clint Eastwood, from his 1993 movie he stared in titled, "In The Line Of Fire", where he wears his two tone "Root Beer" GMT-Master.

If you click on the Hodinkee link and look at more photos of the Rolex green room, you can also see the photo below of Robert De Niro from the movie titled, "The Deer Hunter", and we see him wearing his Rolex Submariner.

I also recognize the photo below, which appears in the first photo of the Hodinkee story. It is from the late 1920s and features actress Evelyn Laye, as she demonstrates the waterproof quality of her Rolex Oyster, by submerging it in a fishbowl. Also in the first photo on Hodinkee, on the far left, at the top, I recognize the photo (not shown here) from Peter Sellers Pink Panther series movie titled, "A Shot In The Dark."
