Hollywood’s biggest night of the year is just around the corner as fans get set to witness the 91st Academy Awards, or as they are more popularly known, the Oscars 2019. Set to take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California on 24th February 2019, Oscars 2019 have a lot to offer for all the movie fans around the globe. From whatever new can be expected, the age-old glorious saga of celebs and their mind-blowing dresses is a sure shot thing every fan loves to witness every year.
When it comes to tickets for the Oscars, many consider it to be a dream that can’t be lived, and it is pretty much right. Tickets to the Oscars do not go up for sale but are made available to the non-celebrities in limited numbers. These tickets allow access to the bleachers outside the Dolby Theatre to a maximum of 750 people. Moreover, another way for the general audience to make it through to the Oscars night is by being a seat filler. Who is a seat filler? One that fills in seats next to the celebs to make sure the theatre doesn’t look empty when the celebrity next to him/her goes to receive an award. Sounds simple? A big no! Here are the complete steps involved in grabbing your ticket to the Oscars, only if a lot of luck favors you.
How To Buy Tickets For Oscars 2019?
The answer to this is pretty pessimistic. AMPAS make 700 seats for bleachers lining the red carpet for the general public. They do not cost you a single penny but a hell lot of luck and time! AMPAS make available those 700 seats for free via a lucky draw. Now from these 700, a few are picked randomly and rather spontaneously to be seat fillers. Bleachers, of course, don’t attend the ceremony, but they do stand a chance to become a seat filler and then visit the ceremony. Here are the steps you need to follow to participate and stand a chance to attend the Oscars 2019.
Step 1: Visit Oscars official website (www.Oscars.org) and register for the Bleachers lineup.
Step 2: Visit seatfiller.com and fill in your details. Seat Filler picks up seat fillers to fill in for seats that are left over because of some guest not making it to the ceremony.
Step 3: Wait for giveaways. Now, the first two steps are important. In case AMPAS offers the giveaway, which of course is a rarity, you’ll have to signup on seat filler and Oscars official website anyway.
Step 4: This is to be done when you fail with all the first three steps. You can try for any connection of your friends in Hollywood. Any connection will do as the guests are allowed to bring along a certain number of people along with them.
Why We Can’t Buy Any Tickets/Passes That Belong To Someone Else?
Gone are the days when you could sit at the Oscars on someone else’s name. Academy has tightened the screws on security big time. Every single guest is asked to get photographed beforehand and only then the guest list is prepared. Post that, upon arrival, every single guest has to undergo severe security checks, yes! Even the metal detectors! So chances of making it to the Oscars on someone else’s name is zero.
