AMPAS Meets ALT

Watching the Oscars in style

Certain television events demand not merely your attention, but a modicum of ceremony as well. You can’t just casually flip on the Super Bowl one afternoon and watch it while you clean house. No!

“The Oscar Goes to ...”

“The 82nd Academy Awards” on ABC

A whole galaxy of Hollywood stars will be in attendance, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin will share hosting duties, and at some point, somebody’s bound to show up on stage painted Avatar blue.
