The Envelope please..........

Do you know how many hands actually touch the coveted envelope?  We didn't, so we asked.

LA celebrity invitation connoisseur Marc Friedland who designed this year's official Oscar envelopes gave us some inside info.

“In 2011 when I designed the first Academy Award winners' envelope, I wanted to create a modern icon imbued with a rich air of luxury, reminiscent of the glamorous golden age of Hollywood," he informed us. 

"And while it is only touched by a handful of winners—yet seen by millions—I wanted to see how I could make this piece of Oscar history part of the tradition of Oscar Party Sunday.

If you really think about it, the most ubiquitous phrases of the Oscars are 'The Oscar goes to...' and 'The envelope, please.' "
