Clay Aiken – Honoring The Best

The 87th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, took place last night, February 22, 2015, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. The event honored the best films of 2014

The expected TV audience number is approximately 45 million and that included the six of us at our home.

It was interesting to see the top awards:

Best Director

Alejandro González Iñárritu, “Birdman”

Best Actress

Julianne Moore, “Still Alice”

Best Actor

Eddie Redmayne, “The Theory of Everything”

Clay Aiken has never had a prominent position at the Oscars, but back in 2005, he worked for the television show, The Insider, as an on-site reporter at the Emmys.

After the event, Clay donated his entire Emmy outfit to The Clothes Off Our Back. This charity was started by Bradley Whitford and Jane Kaczmarek. The organization sells items worn by celebrities at special occasions. When the auction was finally over, the tuxedo, shoes, and cufflinks that Clay wore to the 2005 Emmy Awards went for a final amazing total of $27,250.

The following are a few pictures of Clay working at the Emmy Awards in Pasadena, CA.

  1. wouldn't it be wonderful if Clay was nominated next year, love the pics. Thank you Martha. xo

  2. Yes..I do remember Clay doing this, and he was quite good. I would imagine now, he's got so much experience with people that he would excel as a reporter. I hope his docu-series gets nominated for an Emmy….I cannot wait to see this. Watched the Oscars last night, and I really enjoyed it. Thanks for all the info Musicfan.

  3. I've seen these photos of Clay before but never knew they were taken at the Oscars in 2005. I'm amazed at the amount his donated clothes raised at the auction. Looking forward to April and Clay's documentary.

    • Emily…these pictures are from the Emmy Show in 2005. It was held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.
