"I'm thrilled to be asked to host the Academy Awards for the second time because, as they say, the third time's a charm," Host Jon Stewart.


Hosted By: Jon Stewart



Unless you're an Academy member, your chances of actually getting inside to actually see the awards show are virtually zero. (In 1996, two people spent big bucks on scalped tickets to the Oscars, and made the headlines - when they were thrown out of the ceremony. Tickets are non-transferable..)

Fortunately, the bleachers outside, with a view of the red carpet, are free to the public.

In previous years, fans had to camp out on the streets for days in advance, in order to secure a spot in the bleachers - which were first come, first served. However, things have changed this year.

Two things have happened: one was Oscar's move from the Shrine Auditorium to the Kodak Theatre. The other was the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

It would be a lot more difficult for fans to camp out on the busy city streets near Hollywood & Highland, and with this year's security concerns, the organizers wanted to pre-screen every in the bleachers. So, for 2002, they had an entirely new system. For the first time, they were giving away reserved seat tickets, guaranteeing a seat in the bleachers. There is no waiting in line this year.

But the down side is that there were only 400 seats available, so they asked people to fill in an application and submit a photo of themselves. The first 400 people to send in the application got tickets (assuming they pass the background check). The rest were out of luck. No camping out will be tolerated this year.

Oscar night is usually held on the third (or last) Sunday in March.

The first movie stars start arriving at around 4 PM , a few as early as 3:30 PM (when the sun is still shining) for this black tie affair, but most of the celebs show up after 4:30 PM . By 5:30 PM , the stars are all inside and the show begins. The police block off the surrounding streets, and the stars say that just traveling the few blocks from the freeway to the auditorium can take an hour in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Tune into ABC to watch the Awards on March 24th.
