Oscars: Red Carpet Highlights From The 86th Academy Awards
Starpulse was back on the red carpet for the fourth year and we spoke with some great stars this year. We've been in the same location for the last three years, but you never know who is going to stop by. Some years you get the big names, while other years, no one wants to be interviewed. The 86th Annual Academy Awards was a great year for us on the red carpet. Julia Roberts, Glenn Close, Kevin Spacey, Kellan Lutz and Whoopi Goldberg were just some of the names who stopped by to speak with us.

Well, it no longer seems to be handed to 12 Years a Slave because Gravity and American Hust...
