On Wednesday April 21st to Saturday April 24th, eOn Sanitizing Mist, hosted a four-day luxury celebrity wellness gifting lounge, presented by GBK Brand Bar and Kailo Pain Patch, in honor of the 2021 Academy Awards. To make this happen, each attendee (who was not already vaccinated) was given a rapid Covid-19 test before entering, a scheduled appointment time, and measures were taken to have the event spaced out in compliance with Covid-19 occupancy guidelines. eOn Sanitizing Mist partnered with Goodwill to donate over 20,000 cans.

UNION STATION HOSTS 93RD OSCARS


Hollywood’s biggest spotlight was shining on Union Station in Los Angeles in a whole new way when the 93rd Academy Awards took place there to honor the film industry award winners with the 2012 Oscars.  

To prioritize safety for an in-person event amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, producers of the 93rd Academy Awards took a dramatic swing by converting Union Station—a bustling regional transportation hub that serves over 100,000 riders daily—into a gorgeous movie star-filled event space. The hall's regal 62-foot vaulted ceilings and spacious outdoor patios made it a no-brainer for the perfect place to celebrate the biggest night in movies.

The ceremony was held inside the station’s Grand Waiting Room and historic ticketing hall, with the old ticket-counter room serving as the main stage. The north and south patios served as a stage for the pre- and post-show. The ceremony’s lighting incorporated the station’s own deco light features and the old ticket area’s 40-foot windows. Attendees arrived in pods of two—a nominee and their guest—and were seated together at socially distanced tables and banquettes.

The visuals inncluded architectural styles ranging from Art Deco and Mission Revival to Streamline Moderne, the glamorous Union Station has always felt comfortable in front of a camera: it’s been used as a filming location for films ranging from "Blade Runner" to "The Dark Knight Rises." And the ceremony’s timing was perfect, with the 82-year-old station just having gotten major work done: an eight-year restoration of its historic ceiling completed just in time for Sunday's show.
