Hi,

just out of curiosity - do any of you know if it is possible to get a
ticket for the oscars (as a non movie star/producer/"seatfiller"), and
if so, how much would they aprox. cost?.. im sure they'd be expensive as
hell.

There certainly should be tickets for the Oscars. Some of their choices are minor infractions, but Scorsese being repeatedly overlooked... That should be a felony.

(Let's hope tonight is his night.)

While I agree that he has been overlooked, I have to say that.... Although I have not seen "The Departed", it is a remake of a Chinese Film, which I didn't like...
