Hofstra Journalism Students Win Trip to the Oscars

The funniest portion of  the video that won Hofstra journalism students Jackie De Tore, Melanie Rubin and Beth Laschever the chance to cover the Academy Awards this year for KABC’s On the Red Carpet is their spoofing of some signature red-carpet banter.

After a fellow female student waltzes out of a college dorm elevator sporting a Snuggie, De Tore asks who the designer is. After a moment’s hesitation, her campus celeb replies, “As Seen on TV:”

This is the second year in a row that a contest of this nature has been won by Hofstra University students. In 2011, Luz Pena and Phillip Robibero claimed a similar MTVu prize.
