After the stars'' fashion choices have been dissected in minute details, attention has shifted to the interior design of the Kodak Theater during the 81st Annual Academy Awards ceremony.

The unquestionable highlight of the theater''s decor was the cascading curtain studded with 100,000 Swarovski crystals flown specially from Austria for the event.

It was the part of the set designed by architect David Rockwell, also the creative talent behind the Kodak Theater itself.

"We could not think of a better partner than Swarovski to fulfill our vision of not just a curtain, but a frame to capture all the elegance, excitement and high fashion that is the Academy Awards," says Rockwell."We have collaborated with Swarovski many times and the result is always breathtaking.

He adds, "This is yet another spectacular centerpiece."

Novel uses of high technology were also a prominent feature of this year''s ceremony. The organizers decided to forego one big flat screen to show movie clips and montages and opted instead for five LED screens that transformed and reconfigured as well as 20 other still LED screens.

The ceremony, hosted by Hugh Jackman, was held in Los Angeles on February 22. Kate Winslet, Sean Penn, Penelope Cruz and the family of Heath Ledger took home the statuettes in the main acting categories.
