Calling all Oscar® fans! Your chance to be a part of Hollywood’s biggest night has arrived.
Beginning on Monday, September 17, at noon PST, and continuing for only one week, fans may apply online to win seats on America’s most celebrated red carpet – the Academy Awards® red carpet. There are 300 seats available along the 500-foot-long carpet that leads into the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center®.
The lucky winners will get to watch and cheer the Oscar nominees, presenters and other ceremony guests as they arrive at the 80th Academy Awards on Sunday, February 24, 2008.
The application form will be available at oscars.org/bleachers
. The online-only application process will close on Monday, September 24, at noon PST.
To be eligible for the random lottery, an individual must complete the application form in its entirety. Applications may only be submitted online. Forms may not be returned via U.S. mail, fax or private delivery service such as UPS or FedEx.
Applicants may register up to four persons; however, only one form will be accepted per person or group.
Those whose names are selected in the random drawing will be notified in early October. They will then be required to submit additional information for security purposes prior to final approval. Eligible attendees will receive a confirmation letter in early December with information pertinent to the event.
Only those individuals who have been pre-approved by the Academy will have access to the bleachers. Those who wait overnight to attempt admittance will not be granted entry.
The Academy will not be responsible for securing travel and/or hotel accommodations for winners.
Following the red carpet arrivals, the winners will be invited to watch the Academy Awards telecast at a nearby location.
In previous years, as many as 25,000 fans have applied online for the limited bleacher seats.
Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2007 will be presented on Sunday, February 24, 2008, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center®, and televised live by the ABC Television Network.
