LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Moments of pouring rain didn't faze Jana Kahn, who traveled all the way from balmy Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, with her teen daughters and husband to join other celebrity-loving fans in bleachers above the Oscars' red carpet.
Clear plastic tents shielded fans and the carpet itself from alternating periods of stormy weather and bright sun.
"I'm just trying to absorb everything!" said the 50-year-old red-headed mom of the family's first time at the Oscars. Her equally red-daughters Tegan, 15, and Alexandra, 11, seated next to her on metal benches, chatted happily about the possibility of seeing Johnny Depp and Jennifer Lawrence. All of them sported freshly painted sparkly nails.
"Johnny Depp is my favorite person ever!" said Tegan, grinning. "I love him. He's an amazing actor."
