Bleacher Seats at the Oscars
The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science does not sell tickets to the Oscars. So, if you are not invited there is only one way that you could potentially be a part of the event and close to all of the red carpet action. The Academy holds a random drawing each year that allows winners to sit in the bleacher seats located at the top of the red carpet adjacent to the Kodak Theater.
This timethe entry period for the drawing was between September 14, 2009 through 11:59:59 PM EDT on September 20, 2009, to enter the random drawing for an opportunity to sit in the bleacher seats (up to 4 total), outside the Kodak Theatre at the 82nd Academy Awards on March 7, 2010. In the weeks approaching, Hollywood tours showcase the Kodak theater as preparations begin and “industry buzz” fills the air regarding everything from “winners to be” to the to the red carpets wardrobe.
