HOW TO GET FREE TICKETS FOR THE OSCARS & ACADEMY AWARDS RED CARPET BLEACHER SEATS
Have you ever wondered how those fans got a spot in the Academy Awards Red Carpet Bleacher Seats? If you ever dreamed of watching the Hollywood Stars walk down the Red Carpet in a closer look, your chances are within your grasp.
Sometime in September of 2009, I heard in the Channel 4 news Los Angeles that the online lottery for 2010 82nd Oscars & The Academy Awards Bleacher Seats free tickets submission was officially started on that very same day. The viewers were asked to go online and log on to their official website which is www.oscars.org/bleachers.
Upon hearing that, since I was sitting close to my computer, I immediately grabbed my keyboard and typed in the website’s URL. There you go, the submission form popped up with instructions on how to go over with it.
Alongside with my
entry, I had the option to take 3 more people with me. There’s a section
in the form where to write 3 Full Names and their email addresses.
So, if my name is randomly selected, it means to say that those 3 people will be joining me in the Red Carpet event.
Ok, here’s what you have to do :
- Starting August or September, you have to start checking on the oscars’ website to get announcements for the Bleacher Seat online lottery. It’s recommended to track down the start date so you can send in your submission on the very first day of the lottery. It could probably increase your chances of winning. Who knows right? There’s nothing to lose. Why wait for the 2nd day when you can do it on the 1st day. In my case, I submitted my entry on the day the submission started. Usually, the submission date is mid-September and it covers a full week.
- A notification will be sent out to your e-mail on the 1st week of October. So, be sure not to miss that email. If it doesn’t show up in your inbox then check your spam, it could be sitting there waiting for you.
- If you will be selected, the next process will be signing the agreement and a background check. You will be asked to fill up a form for security purposes. Be sure to read and understand the agreement, sign it and fill up the background check questionnaire in its entirety. Attach a current photo. Since it is a background check, you have to reveal your Social Security Number. Oppss! Don’t get alarmed. Academy Awards is a very trusted organization and your sensitive information is safe in their hands. Of course, they have to make sure that each and every person joining that big event is secured and is not a threat to each other’s lives as well. Their next ultimate goal is safety for everybody. You will be asked to mail the form to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ address in Beverly Hills California. The complete address is provided in their email.
- You will receive a confirmation email whether you passed the background check or not sometime in November. If you do pass the background check, an invitation will be mailed to your address via post office mail. They will also send you an email of the Bleacher Seat information Packet which contains important instructions on what to do, where to go, what & what not to bring, what to wear, parking instructions, arrival time and etc. You will also be asked to RSVP via online. Do it as soon as possible. If you don’t receive the invitation by February, call their office and tell the operator that you are a bleacher fan and you will be transferred to the authorized personnel to handle your query. Let them know that you didn’t receive the invitation in the mail and rest assured the person in-charged will take care of that as soon as possible.
Good luck on your entry for the 2011 83rd Oscars & The Academy Awards Red Carpet Bleacher Seat Fan.
