The Oscars Ceremony In The Movies | The Bodyguard (1992)
The Bodyguard (1992)

Being a megastar is not as easy as it seems, because sometimes there are unhinged people out there who may become dangerously obsessed with you. This is why God invented buff men with earpieces. Protecting the hugely talented is all in a day’s work for former Secret Service man Frank Farmer (Kevin Costner) who has to shepherd superstar Rachel Marron (Whitney Houston) through an Oscars ceremony without leaving her open to assassination. This task is complicated by his growing feelings for her and the fact that someone out there seems to want to take her out with a hatred rarely inspired by a woman whose voice can lull angels to sleep and heal the infirm. Mick Johnson’s thriller sees Marron winning the big gong and, thanks to K-Cos, getting away with her life too. Double win! The scene was shot in eight days using 1000 extras and cost $200,000 a day to film.

1 RE: The Oscars Ceremony In The Movies
L: Pelle Whitney's Dead Show some respect! ait a minute. So, because she is dead, a movie magazine/website isn't allowed to mention a scene of a movie she was the star of that was set at an Oscar ceremony? Even when they do an Oscars Ceremony In ? They don't mention her death in the piece and they certainly don't mock her so I think they are being ] respectful. More
