Bleacher Seats For Oscar Red Carpet
Red Carpet Seats
Available for 78th Oscars®
Random Drawing to be Conducted Online
The opportunity for Oscar fans to experience the ultimate Hollywood red carpet will come knocking on Monday, September 19, at noon PST. Fans will have one week to enter a random online drawing to win one of 300 bleacher seats available to watch the red carpet arrivals at the 78th Academy Awards® on Sunday, March 5, 2006, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.
This year's application process will be conducted online only, and for seven days only. Registration will close on Monday, September 26, at noon PST.
Anyone interested in securing bleacher seats must log on to www.oscars.org/bleachers next week and click on Red Carpet Bleacher Seats for the online application form.
To be eligible, an individual must complete the 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.
Online bleacher application forms can register one person or groups up to four, but only one form will be accepted per person or group. Multiple entries will be discarded.
Applicants successful in the random drawing will be notified by Monday, October 3. Fans selected in this first phase of the process will be required to submit additional information for security purposes prior to final approval. Eligible attendees will be notified of their approval by December 1. Once approved, participants will receive a confirmation letter with additional information pertinent to the event.
No one will be admitted without the official Academy confirmation letter. Those attempting to wait outside overnight for admittance will not be permitted to do so.
This year marks the fourth year that applications have been required for bleacher seats. Last year over 21,000 fans applied online for the limited seats available. The process was first instituted for the 74th Academy Awards.
