17. SOUNDBITE: (English) John Neville, British tourist:
"It is a bit little freaky, if that is a term. We come from Las Vegas... we began in Las Vegas for a couple of days, we just come back to Los Angeles for a couple of days. And pity we are not here another night, it would have been quite fun."
The countdown has well and truly begun in Hollywood for Sunday's 79th Academy Awards.
On Saturday, residents and tourists alike looked on as the iconic Oscar statutes arrived at the venue for the awards ceremony.
The much coveted golden statues got their own special walk down the red carpet as Hollywood prepares for the big event.
50 students from Inner-City Filmmakers (ICF), a training and film industry job development programme, carried the Oscar statuettes of the 79th Academy Awards to the Kodak Theatre.
The Oscars will be kept backstage overnight under heavy security, until they are presented at the awards on Sunday.
One of the fifty young people who took part, film student Maurice Griffin told Associated Press TV "It is like I am holding on to like my dream literally, you know hopefully in the future all of us will be able to win our own Oscars award."

Critics lay the blame on the judging panel, which has often picked smaller movies in key Oscar categories, that have been seen by less people.
This means, the critics maintain, that television viewers are less involved in the outcome.
Tourists are still keen however to get a glimpse of the action and on Saturday they were rubbing shoulders with media crews from around the world.
John Neville, a British visitor, said he would have liked to spend another night in Los Angeles in order to see the stars.
He said: "Pity we are not here another night, it would have been quite fun."
