Thanks to ALA Oscars will be smokefree (including e-cigs)

After Leonardo DiCaprio publicly used an e-cigarette at the Screen Actors Guild awards ceremony, the American Lung Association publicly criticized him, which was reported by the celebrity website TMZ, the Dolby Theater where the Oscars are held announced that their ceremony would be smokefree, including e-cigarettes.  (Full story here and here.)

There is still no official confirmation from the Academy itself.

Let's hope that this decision to stop promoting tobacco at the Oscar ceremony is foreshadowing a more substantial institutions response from Hollywood to stop promoting smoking by implementing an R rating for smoking movies.
