Tickets to the Oscars

Intro: Most people dream of attending the Oscars, often called the Academy Awards, but will never get the chance to star in an award winning movie. Follow these steps to get tickets to the Oscars.

 

Step 1: To get tickets to the Oscars, you can apply to be a seatfiller. Seatfillers must apply the September before the February Oscars, online at oscars.org.

 

Step 2: Seatfillers are the people who fill in the seats for celebrities who do not show up to the Oscars. Seatfillers will often sit in a celebrities chair when they are away from their seat. Becoming a seatfiller is a great way to go to the Oscars and get to be very close to all the big name celebrities.

 

Step 3: To get tickets to the Oscars, apply online to become a Seatfiller. You will have to send in a resume, cover letter, and photo. They are extremely picky about the people they choose to be Seatfillers. Not only must you be a professional, you must look good.

 

Step 4: Another way to get tickets to the Oscars is to try and win a spot in the bleachers. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences typically offers an online lottery. For the 2009 Academy Awards, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, gave away 300 seats in their online lottery.

 

Step 5: To get tickets to the Oscars, you must register online to try and win one of the lottery seats. Registration is open for about a week in the September before the February Oscars.

 

Tips: To get tickets to the Oscars, many people in the past have bought them off of ticket lottery winners for up to $40,000 but The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is now preventing that from happening.

 

Warnings: If you do become a Seatfiller, you are not allowed to talk with any of the celebrities unless they speak to you first.
