Stars and stargazers stay in LA for Oscar Week
This wasn't always the case. Skipping town in the lead up to the Academy Awards is a tradition which harks back to Hollywood's Golden Era, when a lineup of leading ladies preferred to spend their downtime on vacation rather than networking with their studio mogul bosses, who established the ceremony in 1929.

Katharine Hepburn was born in Hartford in 1907 and died in Fenwick in 2003. She was nominated for an Oscar 12 times and won in 1934 for "Morning Glory," in 1968 for "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner," in 1969 for "The Lion in Winter," and in 1982 for "On Golden Pond."
